- This season also marks the start of Barney Second Era (July 8, 1997-August 27, 2002).
- This season marks the debut of Scooter McNutty, and Miss Etta Kette.
- The school, playground, and treehouse all get updated for the new generation:
- The school doors change from orange to green; the windows have a green trim rather than white; and it now has a wheelchair ramp.
- The classroom has been rearranged completely, looking almost nothing like previous seasons.
- The playground gets more plants, and a red bench surrounds a tree. The fences have also changed to green rail fences.
- The treehouse gets a totally updated, looking nothing like its Season 3 counterpart. Near the back, there is a huge round table, where the kids have snacks, read books, and even make arts and crafts (using the Barney Bag!). In the back of the treehouse, there is a ship wheel that the kids use to pretend that they are sailing. In the front of the treehouse, there are benches that look out to the outside deck of the treehouse.
- In addition, a lookout is added to the treehouse. This is where the kids pretend to fly an airplane or watch for a special surprise to come. There are stairs that lead up to the look out, and a slide that connects from the lookout to the back of the treehouse.
- Like in Once Upon a Time (video), Stella's stories are now acted out by the kids while Stella narrates them.
- A new Barney doll is introduced.
- Josh Martin performed the Barney costume from Tree-Mendous Trees to E-I-E-I-O, except for All Mixed Up (which Maurice Scott performed Barney), and in the home video It's Time for Counting.
- This is the first and only season in which every episode has at least one new Barney song.
- Unlike previous seasons, the credits for this season only feature characters that appeared in the specific episode and not the entire cast.
- Some extras become regular cast members during this generation cast.
- Stephen: appearances in the Season 3 episodes A Day at the Beach (1996), Campfire Sing-Along (1996), Barney Goes to School (1996), Barney in Concert (1996) and Rock with Barney (1996).
- Ashley and Alissa: appearances in the Season 3 episodes Barney Goes to School (1996).
- Maria: appearances in the Season 3 episode Shawn and the Beanstalk and the Barney Videos Barney Waiting for Santa (1996) .
- Kristen: appearances in the home videos Barney Waiting for Santa (1996).
- Kim: appearance in Barney's Sense-Sational Day.
- Maria never appeared with Alissa, Curtis, Danny, Jeff, Kim, Keesha, or Lillian played by Tessa Ludwick, or any of the Backyard Gang Kids (Derek, Michael, Luci, and Tina). However, Ashley and Scooter McNutty made appearances in all of Maria's season 4 appearances.
- Unlike previous seasons, the theme song for this season was edited after all 40 episodes were filmed.
- The names on the cubbies in the classroom from left to right are: Alissa, Ashley, Keesha, Robert, Stephen, Hannah, Chip, Kim, David, Maria, Dennis, and Kristen.
- Although Bob Singleton as the Music Director on the show, Bob Singleton was still a Music Director for a few Barney Home Videos. During this season's home videos, Singleton did Barney's Good Day, Good Night and Barney's It's Time for Counting.
