Barney: Let’s Go to the Doctor Episodes
My Friends, the Doctor and the Dentist
Barney and friends show how kids brush their teeth properly, conserve water, while having fun by singing catchy tunes. Then they pretend to be doctors or dentists, showing kids how it is important to go in for check-ups. The show tells kids that one way to keep your body strong and healthy and your smile bright is to not be afraid to go to the dentist or doctor.
The Awful Tooth
Barney’s friend, Maria, has a tooth ache that needs the dentist’s attention. She is afraid of going to the dentist, so she makes up all sorts of excuses for not getting her tooth checked out. Barney and friends show Maria a table full of healthy foods that Maria could not eat because of her tooth ache. Then the gang pretend that they are at the dentist office having their teeth checked out. By showing Maria that they care and that people help people, it gives Maria the courage to go to the dentist and have her tooth fixed.
In this episode, Barney and friends teach kids what a vet does and stands for. That just like humans, their animal friends have injuries too. When their animal friends doesn’t feel good they go to the veterinarian for help or for check-ups just like them.
