In this season of Barney & Friends, there's even more new stuff -- a treehouse, Stella the Storyteller, and some new cast members that only appear for this season, due to the fact that the returning cast members from the past season will also appear for the last time here. The third season started off with 15 new episodes from February 27, 1995 to March 17, 1995, and the last five originally aired from October 2–6, 1995.

When the first 15 Season 3 episodes originally aired, they had end credits that were as long as Seasons 1-2, and the season was funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and "Viewers Like You" (the same sponsors from the first season).
Another two underwriters, Chuck E. Cheese's and Mead Johnson, joined the show starting on September 11, 1995, one week after Labor Day, for funding of further reruns of this season of Barney & Friends, along with five new episodes that aired on the first week of October.
On reruns from December 1997 and later, the Barney Says segment was removed from all Season 3 episodes. At that time, Mead Johnson left the show, and there were two new underwriters -- Chef Jr. and Kellogg's, which also funded Season 4.
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting also left the show after October 1998 with no additional changes to the sponsors, and PBS officially ended weekday reruns of the first three seasons on September 3, 1999. However, the fundings remained unchanged until May 6, 2000, when Chef Jr. last sponsored the show, and Season 3 last aired only on weekends.
