Trivia[]

  • Michael calls back to playing the cello in future episodes. He specifically refers to this episode in Everyone is Special (episode), Picture This! and Sing and Dance with Barney.
  • This is the first episode where Luci plays "I Love You" on her guitar. She also does so in that episode, "Hola, Mexico!", in which it was also the second episode to feature that. Also, Amy Cimorelli & Dani Cimorelli play "I Love You" on their guitars both of those times.
  • The different music types on the fixed record are a waltz, an instrumental version of Japanese song "Sakura Sakura," and a polka.
  • Barney's voice is starting to sound like the Season 2 voice, but his low voice still lasts through the second season.
  • This marks the first time Tosha is seen with Luci and Tina.
  • This is the fourth episode to feature only one boy (Michael).
  • The song "If You're Happy and You Know It" plays during the story "Emmit the Elephant Joins the Band".
  • In some different versions of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, there was a rock and roll version of the song played by Greg Murray being inspired by the early 1900s version.
  • The song "I Am a Fine Musician" now uses Barney's higher-pitched voice.
  • In some speaking dialogue Bob West does, Barney's high voice is used when he says something like "I knew you could play it Michael, I just KNEW IT!!!" and "It sounds like you're almost there Michael" or even when he says "I love Music!". (see other description above about his voice).
  • Although Pop Goes the Weasel, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Frere Jacques and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star were played on the piano, the children don't sing any of those songs.
  • The clavioline keyboard is heard when Luci plays Row, Row, Row Your Boat with her feet.
  • This is the fourth episode to feature only one boy (Michael).
  • Greg Murray's name is similar to Greg and Murray who are part of The Wiggles.
  • Michael wear the same shirt from Doctor Barney Is Here!. And the same clothes from Happy Valentine's Day!. And a short hair.
  • Tosha wear the same clothes from Today, We Can Say! . And a bun.
  • Tina wear the same shirt from We Fly A My Kite!. And the same clothes from Putting On A Show. And a pony tail.
  • Luci wear the same shirt from Mac and Cheese. And the same clothes from I Like To Eat Some Cookies Playing The Harp, and The Yankee Doodle Mouse. And a long hair.
