Barney's Christmas Star is the Barney & Friends Home Video special that was originally released on October 22, 2002.


Christmas is fast approaching, so Barney and the children are quite excited. They help decorate the caboose for the holidays and build a "thinking" snowman in the park. Then they visit a tree planted by Beth's great-great-grandfather that's now the prettiest, oldest one in the park. Her grandmother is in charge of decorating the tree for Christmas this year, and everyone is shocked to find that the large star to adorn the top is missing! She suggests it's up in her attic and dispatches Barney and the children there to find it. Fun and playful mayhem ensue, with constant distractions from the search by various and sundry dusty "treasures" encountered. The children, Baby Bop, and BJ discover--and become--old-fashioned toys. All dictate a musical letter to Santa, typed on an old fashioned typewriter. When an ancient library is discovered, Barney reads The Night Before Christmas to the group. The elusive star finally reveals itself, with some urging from the group. Barney and the children arrive back at the tree in time for the lighting ceremony. But it has grown too tall for its peak to be reached from a ladder! Barney magic ensures the proper placement of the star, and everyone is soon well on their way to a very merry Christmas season!
