Green Thumbs is a custom Season 1 episode of Barney & Friends. This episode teaches kids all about plant life and plant science. The episode would have aired on May 8, 1992 (two days before Mother's Day), in place of A World of Music.


It's Mother's Day, and everyone brought in plants for their mothers to school today. That is, all except Kathy, because she is having trouble finding the right kind of flowers to bring her mother. Therefore, it's up to Barney and the boys to help Kathy decide what flowers to give her mom.


  • Barney (Voice: Bob West / Body: David Joyner)
  • Michael (Brian Eppes)

  • Shawn (John David Bennett II)
  • Kathy (Lauren King)

  • Michael and Kathy both wear the same clothes from Happy Birthday, Barney!, and Kathy also wears the same hairstyle from Let's Help Mother Goose!.
  • Derek and Shawn both wear the same clothes from A World of Music, which would not have been planned had this episode ever existed.
