Sing and Dance with Barney and Snoopy

Chapter 1: We're ALL Getting Together

It was a calm day at the Peanuts Gang's school, and Franklin, Schroeder and Jeff were hanging out together, each had an envelope in their hands.

"Hi Jeff, hi Schroeder, hi Franklin." Keesha said, walking towards the boys.

"Hey Keesha." Jeff smiled. "What's up?"

"Not much, I was just heading up-"

"To the treehouse?" Schroeder asked.

"How'd you know I was going up there?" Keesha wondered.

"We all got invitations just like yours." Jeff said. "See?"

"Come to the treehouse to sing a song and lots of friends will sing along." Franklin read his letter aloud.

"Yup. Mine's the same. What do you think it's all about?" Keesha asked before they spotted Peppermint Patty skipping to the treehouse.

"I don't know, but anytime to get together with friends is ALWAYS fun." Jeff said as they followed Peppermint Patty, all singing a song about getting together.

Barney's Friends and Peanuts Gang:

The more we get together,

Together, together,

The more we get together,

The happier we'll be.

Hannah, Lucy, Violet and Patty Swanson walked towards them.

"Hi, where're you blockheads going?" Violet asked.

"Quiet, Violet." Patty Swanson shushed.

"Are you guys going to the treehouse?" Hannah asked.

"Uh huh, I got an invitation too!" Stephen agreed.

"This is gonna be one big party." Franklin said.

"AGREED!" an eager Pigpen jumped happily as the kids coughed. "Whoops, sorry guys."

"It's okay." Everyone else said in unison.

The more we get together,

Together, together,

The more we get together,

The happier we'll be.

'Cause your friends are my friends,

And my friends are your friends,

The more we get together,

The happier we'll be.

Inside the classroom, Frieda was busy decorating for the party, holding onto a special list as Robert, Eudora, 5, his sisters, Roy, Dolores and Linus set up some balloons with Rerun. The five-year-old Van Pelt was blowing square balloons with his friend from daycare, Piper. Piper didn't mind the square balloons though, as she was blowing triangle shaped balloons.

"Good grief." Linus sighed as everyone else entered. He collected everyone's invitations and smiled.

The more we get together,

Together, together,

The more we get together,

The happier we'll be.

'Cause your friends are my friends,

And my friends are your friends,

The more we get together,

The happier we'll be.

As they sang that last line, the Barney doll came to life.

"BARNEY!" everyone exclaimed.

Barney:

The more we get together,

The happier we'll be.

"Hi, everybody." Barney smiled.

"Hi, Barney!" the kids said.

"We're glad to see you, Barney." Hannah smiled.

"Well I heard you guys singing 'The More We Get Together, The Happier We'll Be', and being together will you makes me VERY happy." Barney said.

"Same here, Big Purple." Peppermint Patty said.

"Indeed." Lucy smiled, batting eyelashes at Schroeder.

"And just HOW HAPPY are you, Barney?" Eudora softly asked.

"Still not quite over your fear of dinosaurs?" asked Stephen.

"I'm getting there." Eudora responded.

"Really happy." Barney said.

"Happy enough to…clap your hands?" Keesha asked, clapping her hands.

"Maybe."

"Happy enough to…stomp your feet?" Robert asked.

"Perhaps."

"Happy enough to shoot 'HOORAY'!" Jeff asked eagerly.

"Possibly."

"Happy enough to do all three?" Hannah asked.

"Why certainly, but only if you all join me." Barney explained.

Barney:

If you're happy and you know it clap your hands.

(Hands clapping)

If you're happy and you know it clap your hands.

(Hands clapping, Feet stomping, Hooray!)

"It sure is good to see so many friends here." Keesha said.

"Oh, that's not even counting our other friends who are coming later." Frieda said.

"Correct. We'll be seeing even more as the day goes on." Barney smiled.

"Ooh! I can't wait to meet them!" Piper said.

"Who are they?" asked Rerun.

"You may not remember them, Rerun. You were only four." Frieda said.

"Maybe I WILL remember them." Rerun said. "Tell will time."

"Time WILL tell." Pigpen corrected.

"Whatever." The five-year-old kids shrugged.

"So Rerun, who's your friend?" Jeff asked.

"This is Piper. We met when I was three, and we've been best friends ever since." Rerun said.

"We both love to color." Piper said.

"Hey everybody, what's happening?" BJ asked as he and Baby Bop entered the treehouse.

"Hi BJ, hi Baby Bop." Barney waved as Charlie Brown, Heather and Snoopy slid down the look out's slide. "Hi Heather, hi Snoopy, hi Charlie Brown."

"I see you got my invitations." Barney said.

"We sure did, Barney." BJ smiled.

"We should've guessed they were from you." Jeff said with a shrug.

"What could we've done?" Peppermint Patty asked.

"How many friends do we know who are purple and green?" asked Keesha.

"Baby Boppers has the color scheme, though Marcie says she's more magenta then purple. That's a kind of pink." Peppermint Patty said. "Speaking of which, I haven't seen her yet. Maybe she's taking a nap in the classroom, reading in the library or something else."

"Is this everyone?" Heather asked.

"Nope." Frieda said, handing Heather the chart. "Don't tell them."

"Okay." Heather winked.

"The invitation says something about coming here and singing songs." BJ said.

"That's right, because you've all arrived at…" Barney said as a wave of his magic sent streamers, the balloons, tablecloths and all sorts of goodies everywhere. "…my super-dee-duper sing-a-long."

"This is a sing-a-long?" wondered Piper, reaching for a pretzel.

"I guess." Lucy said.

"What'd I miss?" Sally asked as she ran into the treehouse. "Wow! What a party!"

"Look at all the snacks." BJ said as Pigpen laid out a tray of gumdrops for everyone.

"Yummy." Peppermint Patty said, already shoving her mouth with a lot of candies; Pigpen's gumdrops were left untouched though.

"And the balloons." Keesha said. "I saw square balloons, but I never saw triangle balloons."

"Thanks." Piper smiled.

"And the snacks." BJ repeated.

"And the streamers." Robert said.

"And MORE snacks!" exclaimed BJ.

"BJ." Everyone else said as Piper giggled.

"He's silly." Piper said.

"You said it." Rerun agreed.

"Sorry guys. I guess I was surprised by all the snacks." BJ explained. "This could feed a whole family of dogs!"

"That's not the only surprise in store." Barney said as he sprinkled a little magic on Snoopy.

"Oooh." Everyone said in awe as Snoopy blinked.

"What's going on?" asked Charlie Brown.

"LET'S HAVE THE BEST PARTY EVER!" Snoopy exclaimed in a happy child's voice.

"SNOOPY!" everyone exclaimed.

"You can talk now?!" Charlie Brown tried grasping the situation.

"It's only for today." Snoopy told his master.

"Barney, the treehouse looks great, and it's a wonderful day for a party." Hannah said. "Even if Snoopy can talk for today."

"It IS a beautiful day, Hannah." Snoopy said.

"In fact, all of you look very sunny!" Barney agreed.

Barney and Snoopy:

Oh, Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun,

Please shine down on me.

Oh, Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun,

Hiding behind a tree...

Barney, Baby Bop, BJ, Barney's friends, Peanuts Gang and Snoopy:

These little children are asking you

To please come out so we can play with you.

Oh, Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun,

Please shine down on me.

As the song hit its instrumental break, Hannah, Heather and Frieda preformed a bit of dance. Hannah did tap dance, Heather did ballet and Frieda did her own dance moves from the Christmas party. Keesha and Peppermint Patty preformed backflips and cartwheels respectively. Everyone cheered for the girls. Snoopy was also dancing to the music with his famous Happy Dance.

Baby Bop and Sally:

Oh, Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun,

Please shine down on me.

Barney, Baby Bop, BJ, Barney's friends, Peanuts Gang and Snoopy:

Oh, Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun,

Hiding behind a tree...

These little children are asking you

To please come out so we can play with you.

Oh, Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun,

Please shine down on...

Please shine down on...

Please shine down on

Baby Bop and Sally:
