  • Barney has his 1988-1989 costume and voice.
  • The Barney costume used in this home video was also seen in "The Backyard Show".
  • The musical arrangements used in "The Backyard Show" is also heard in this video.
  • This version of I Love You has the same arrangements from "A Day at the Beach" and a mix of vocals from "The Backyard Show" and "A Day at the Beach".
  • This is another time Time Lapse is used. It was when the toy letters and numbers that the Backyard Gang already played jumped out of the box and ran away from the backyard.
  • During a scene in which the toy letters and numbers that the Backyard Gang already played jumped out of the box and ran away from the backyard, the music from "The Backyard Show" (when Barney & the Backyard Gang that Mom's coming) is used.
  • This is the first time Barney falls or lays down. This time, after the song Roller Skating, he roller skates too fast, falls down, crashes into the toys, and hurts his tail a little.
  • When Barney yells "Whoa!" while he is rollerskating to fast, the sound clip is taken from "Playing it Safe", except it was pitched down to -5 and mixed with Barney's 1988 voice.
  • During a scene when Barney is rollerskating too fast, the Season 1 version of Runaway Theme with a 1988 arrangement is used, except it was a custom remix of the Season 1's version of Runaway Theme. It will be also used in Thomas and Friends Season 1 episodes (with the 1988 arrangement part cut off).
  • When Barney falls down, and crashes into the toys after he roller skates too fast, the crash sound is taken from "James in a Mess".
  • This is the first time Barney hurts himself. This time, he hurts his tail a little. Then, Tina puts a big bandage on Barney's tail to make it all better.
  • On the original and rereleased covers, the cover is purple with letters and numbers on it.
  • First appearances of Howie and Samantha.
