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


A big thunderstorm chases the kids into the school classroom, where they are frightened by the rain, thunder and lightning. Barney arrives and tells them how to use positive thoughts to change their fears into fun. The kids make silly monster artwork, and then pretend they are funny, friendly monsters. Barney also helps Shawn overcome his fear of dogs when he meets Min's puppy. Barney, Baby Bop, and the kids figure out ways to keep themselves unafraid.
