Barney's Once Upon a Time video marks the last of Shawn's appearances, and also features a slightly reharmonized version of the I Love You song, making it sound similar to the Season 4 (1997) version. This was the first video in which it was advertised in an opening preview to other Barney Home Video titles, during the summer of 1996.


The words "Once upon a time" prompt a visit from Stella the Storyteller. When her suitcase full of props explodes, Barney, Baby Bop, Tosha, Shawn, Carlos and Kristen help her repack it. Using Stella's scattered props, they perform light hearted versions of some classic childrens stories: Rumpelstiltskin, Rapunzel, and Goldilocks & the Three Bears. From "Once upon a time" to "And the all lived happily ever after," it's a day of fun, favorite stories and songs.
