Beach Party [1963]

Genre: Comedy, Musical, Romance
Thoughts of His Purpleness parading around in a Speedo shouldn't deter you from picking up Barney's Beach Party. Despite the dorky dance numbers and stiff dialogue (would it be Barney without them?), the made-for-video show ends up among the sugarcoated series' most palatable. It could be just the scenery, but the star seems more freewheeling in the fun-in-the-sun setting. He shows off a silly hat, slathers on the sunscreen, leads the gang on a sailing expedition, hunts for seashells, chills out with some icy creamy ice cream, flies a kite, builds a sandcastle, assembles s'mores, and even shimmies into a grass skirt for hula lessons. Best of all for dino diehards, Beach Party is a fiesta for DVD/video eyes only--50 minutes of fantasy rays you can't catch on the tube. When they're this harmless, you might as well let your preschooler lounge around and soak up every second. --Tammy La Gorce
