"The Exercise Circus!" is the eleventh episode from the second season of Barney & Friends.


Tina's ready to play in a big way after getting her cast removed, and the kids suggest staging a playground circus. Michael, the Ringmaster, introduces Barney, the Balancing Dinosaur; Barney's Balancing clowns; Derek, the Juggler; and the Tightrope Twins, Terrific Tina and Magnificent Min. Special Guest, "Joe Scruggs" sings the song that really sets off the silliness, but in the end, the kids learn that exercise is good for your body and can still be lots of fun. Later on, Luci comes to visit. Barney also reminds us that hugging is an exercise that's good for the heart!
