"School Friends" is a Season 4 Barney Home Video released in July 14, 1997.
Tomorrow is the first day of school for Stephen! Eager to get a look at what he can expect, Mr. Boyd lets Stephen visit the school classroom a day early in the company of Barney and his friends. In the classroom, Barney shows Stephen and the others numbers and letters, books and music, art and more. BJ gets a lesson in 'indoor and outdoor' voices. Stella the Storyteller visits and tells the story of 'Wigglenose and Womp.' Meanwhile, in the treehouse, Baby Bop conspires with Miss Etta and Scooter to create her very own 'Baby Bop School,' a fun-house version of a 'real' school as envisioned by a highly imaginative three-year-old.
