1994-2000, 2004

Bumper: We see two purple streaks on the bottom and the top of the screen (one on the top and one on the bottom). Inside the box of the streaks (the box is on a white background) is a group of stars in the shape of a rectangle slowly and constantly circling the purple text "Please stay tuned following this presentation for previews of other Barney Home Videos".

Variant: A rare early variant has the purple text in a cyan color in a more formal-looking font, the stars as odd crayon marks, the streaks as a lilac bush gradient color, and it's also still.

FX/SFX: The stars circling the purple text. None for the early variant.

Cheesy Factor: The early variant lacks punctuation. The regular variant uses a period, however.

Music/Sounds: None, except for a female announcer saying the text.

Music/Sounds Variant: On the German VHS of Barney's Imagination Island (Barney's Insel der Fantasien), there is no announcer.

Availability: Common. It was seen on many tapes from the era of the infamous series Barney & Friends, such as Let's Pretend with Barney and Families are Special. It continued to be used in tandem with the next bumper until about 2000. The early variant is rare, but can be found on the earliest releases of Barney in Concert and Barney's Imagination Island, as well as a 1995 release of Barney's Waiting for Santa. It makes strange appearances on the German VHS of Barney's Imagination Island as well as the 2004 DVD release of Barney's Musical Scrapbook.

Scare Factor: None to low. The font of the text on the earlier variant, as well as its sudden appearance, can creep some out. The Barney Home Video logo that follows this can also raise the scare factor.

1999-2001

Bumper: On an animating yellow construction paper background with pieces falling down it, we see the words "Please stay tuned following this presentation for previews of other Barney Home Videos" inside a slightly tilted purple rectangle at the center of the screen.

Trivia: This bumper is based off of the 1998-2000 intro to Barney tapes.

FX/SFX: The animating construction paper on the background.

Music/Sounds: The first Lyrick Studios logo theme, with a very cheerful male announcer saying the text.

Availability: Rare. It was seen on certain Barney releases with the second Lyrick Studios logo, such as ABCs and 123s.

Scare Factor: None to minimal. It can surprise you if you're not expecting it.

2000-2001

Bumper: On a sky blue background with confetti falling, we see the gold text "Please stay tuned for more important messages and previews at the end of this video!", which moves back and forth.

FX/SFX: The confetti falling, the text moving back and forth.

Cheesy Factor: The text's appearance and movement look very cheap.

Music/Sounds: Same as the last bumper, but with the modified text.

Availability: Only seen on Be My Valentine, Love, Barney. It also appeared on The Wiggles: Dance Party.

Scare Factor: Same as the last bumper.
