Barney Wiki

"What's That Shadow?" is the eleventh episode of the first season of Barney & Friends.


A thunderstorm! Lightning! Thunder! Just the kind of little frights that don't seem so little to kids. But with Barney there, those fears can be turned into fun and games. There's a "scariest shadow" contest that shows just how scary some pretty silly things can be. Paper plates and cups magically become not-so-spooky monster masks. And a puppet show is a kid-sized parable on how not to fear a trip to the doctor's office. Sirens, beasts under the bed, the dark - it's amazing how a purple dinosaur can make some of the most dreadful things seem not so scary!

  • "Ride of the Valkyries" from Die Walkure is played when Barney and the kids make their own storm.
  • This episode marks:
    • The first time Baby Bop is around during "The Barney Bag".
    • Min's sister's only appearance, which is at the end.
    • The second time Baby Bop isn't seen leaving when Barney transformed back into a doll, the first time being My Family's Just Right For Me.
  • Kathy claims that her family has a cat named Fluffy during a story she tells with Baby Bop, however it's later stated in Our Furry Feathered Fishy Friends that she can't have a cat because her grandmother is allergic. This may be an error on the writers' part.
