Heartwarming: Barney & Friends

    open/close all folders 
    The Whole Series 
    The Backyard Gang 
  • Barney's big speech in the end of Barney in Concert. He talks about how having such good friends is like having a big family. Awwwww.
  • In "Waiting for Santa", after the Backyard Gang reaches Santa's workshop, Derek rushes to remove his coat and helps Tina with hers.
  • The song Friends Are Forever. This song is sung by Michael and Amy's mother and the song is about how friendships will last forever, when they're make-believe. This is a heartwarming/tearjerker song because it portrays the almost sad idea that a friend might and will eventually leave. That's why imagination and pretend is so important because your make-believe friends will last forever.
    Season One 
  • In the episode "Be a Friend", Derek and Michael spend a whole episode arguing over who gets to keep a picture they made together. They bury the hatchet, and give it to Tosha.
  • When she doesn't know what to give Barney for his birthday, Kathy offers him her teddy. He gently declines the gift, telling Kathy that while presents are nice, she already gave Barney the best gift of all: "the gift of love."
  • My Family's Right For Me. The entire episode.
  • The season finale has Barney sharing a gift that will always show him and his friends someone special. It's a mirror.
  • In the episode "Playing It Safe", Barney accidentally hurts his tail, upon slipping on a toy car. At the end of the episode, when all the kids leave after "I Love You" and Barney turns back into a doll, Derek comes back to put a band-aid on his tail. To show his gratitude, hearts come out of Barney's tail.
  • In the episode "When I Grow Up...", Shawn fears about growing up and having a job until Barney and the kids show him all the different and fun future careers. What makes this episode the most touching and memorable is the ending: Shawn is no longer scared of being an adult, but now he only has one fear: that he can't be friends with Barney anymore when he grows up. The purple dino gently reassures him otherwise, claiming that no matter how big Shawn gets, they'll always be friends "forever and ever". Just thinking about this fact without even watching the episode shows not only what actually does make Barney likeable, but also shows that anyone can love Barney, no matter how old you are.
    Shawn: And maybe someday, I'll be even bigger than Barney!
    Barney: *laughs* You never know!

    Season Two 
  • This exchange, from "The Alphabet Zoo":
    Shawn: Jason, can you teach us how to say something else by signing?
    Jason: Sure, and here's one that's easy to do, and you can say it to very special friends, like Barney.
    * Signs "I love you, Barney" and gives him a hug*
    Barney: Aw! *signing* Thank you, Jason.
    Shawn: What did you say, Jason?
    Jason: I said,*signing* "I love you, Barney."
  • A Very Special Delivery. The entire episode.
    Season Three 

    Season Four 

    Season Five 

  • "What's in a Name?" Even though Chip is obviously concerned that he will miss his baseball game, he offers to help her to learn all of the letters in her name.
    Linda: Thank you, Barney. And thanks, Chip, for helping me today.
    Chip: Hey, what are big brothers for?
As they leave, the look on Chip's face says "I am so proud of her", and the look on Linda's face says "I have the greatest big brother in the world!"

    Other Media 
  • From Sing and Dance With Barney:
    Michael: We think you're a Super Dee Duper friend to all of us, too, Barney.
    Linda: That's right!
    Michael: From the oldest...
    Linda: ...To the youngest!
    All Present (except Barney): You can always count on us!
    • It helps that it leads into You Can Count on Me, this time being sung by everyone except Barney (He sung it earlier).
    • Kathy (as a teen) and Linda's duet of Me and My Teddy (known to be Kathy's trademark song) in the same video. It was like a passing of the Moe torch.
