Top 20 Countdown is a Barney Clip Show that was released on March 10, 2009.


It's time to sing and dance to Barney's top 20 countdown of your favorite songs! Along with Baby Bop and BJ, Barney shows you how to sing and count at the same time and how to move your feet to some great beats. So grab a friend and sing along to some of the best songs like "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe" and the classic "I Love You." It's a musical adventure of learning and fun that the whole family will enjoy.

Production for this video took place in May 2005.


  • This video marks the first home video to use the "Barney Theme Song", since Shake Your Dino Tail!.
  • According to the insert in the video, Let's Make Music, this video was originally called "Barney's Musical Countdown".
  • This home video follows the same format as Can You Sing That Song?, with a fixed audience and a similar set. It's possible that "Top 20 Countdown" was filmed around the same time as that said video.
  • Since the video claims to have twenty songs in the countdown, the "Barney Theme Song" doesn't count as one of the songs.
  • The copyright for this video says "2008", revealing that it was completed months before it was released.
  • In the Spanish dub as well as the VCD release, the HIT Entertainment logo from 2001-2007 is used at the beginning and end.
    • It can be assumed that this video was released internationally first before being released in the US.
      • This also marks the first time a home video release was delayed in the US before its scheduled release date. The next two would be Best Fairy Tales which was released in 2010 and A Super-Dee-Duper Day which was released in 2014 despite them being produced and filmed in 2004 and 2009 respectively.


  • This video marked:
    • The only appearances of Anna, Megan, Jeremy, Sammy, and Suzy.
    • The final appearance of Josh.


  • From the appearance of some of the cast members including Barney, this video was made way before 2009. In this video, Melanie and Amy both appear younger and have different names (Anna and Megan respectively).

Barney Theme Song

  • The theme song was made differently for this home video. Most notably, there are no sound effects like the ones heard during Seasons 7-9 and 12-13 and the background is changed to purple with CGI-animated pieces of confetti.


  • In the video, Barney does not say the title of song number 18.
