Bop 'til You Drop
Little Red Rockin' Hood
Barney, BJ, Riff and the kids prepare for a big sleepover campout in the park and Melanie claims that she is "going to the circus" that night and probably won't be back til really late, so her brother tells her that it's tomorrow night. In reality, as she truthfully explains to Barney, she's very anxious about sleeping outside. Barney tells her that it's not unlike sleeping at home and that it can be a whole lot of fun. From roasting marshmallows and brushing teeth, Melanie learns that sleeping outdoors isn't that bad. After taking care of their teeth, the group listens to a story that Melanie tells, which puts most of them to sleep. While the others are asleep, Barney and Melanie explore the different night time sounds (including BJ's snoring). She tells him that she's not afraid anymore, but the sound of a frog wakes the others up. To help them get back to sleep, Barney sings a lullaby song called "Bedtime with Barney".

- This episode marked:
- Barney makes a reference to "Pistachio".
- After not being used for nine years, the song, "I Used to Be Afraid" returns in this episode, since "It's a Rainy Day!".
- After not being used for twelve years, the song, "Bedtime with Barney" returns in this episode, since Barney's Sleepytime Songs.
