- When the film was released on video, it was edited with scenes of Season 4's cast members (Robert, Alissa and Ashley). Instead, we see the kids getting ready to see Barney's Great Adventure at the Grand Theater with a Barney doll (the one used in the first three Backyard Gang videos). In the UK and Australian video releases, three British kids named Justin (a UK verison of Robert), Sarah (a UK version of Alissa) and Rachel (a UK verison of Ashley) were preparing for a big adventure with Barney, Baby Bop, BJ, Cody played by Trevor Morgan, Abby played by Diana Rice and Marcella played by Kyla Pratt. When one of the kids touched the magic colorful egg, Twinken the Dream Maker's magic transitions to the screening of Barney's Great Adventure at the Grand Theater in Hattiesburg, Mississippi like in the US version.
