"The Queen Of Make-Believe" is the first episode from the first season, as well as the series premiere of Barney & Friends.


It looks like rain. But Min has decided to become the Queen of Make-Believe. Suddenly, it looks like lots of fun! With Barney leading his Friends on a romp of games, songs and activities. They put on a pretend tea-party, build a robot with boxes, they even create some special "stretching exercises" for the imagination. Pretending, make-believing or imagining - children learn it's always called fun.

International Edits

  • In international dubs and co-productions, the songs "I'm a Little Teapot" and "I'm a Little Robot" (which share the same tune) were not sung, rather cutting to Michael (or a another cast member in non-dub versions) coming out of the robot. In the Korean production Baniwa Chingudeul, "What I Want to Be" & "Laugh With Me!" replace the two former songs.
