"Kids World's Adventures of I Just Love Bugs" is the seventeenth episode of Season 1 of Kids World's Adventures of Barney & Friends.
Barney, Ryan, Winnie The Pooh, Bobby, DJ, Stephanie, Malcolm, Dewey, Emily Yeung, Littlefoot, Ash, Tai and the rest of their friends are really "going buggy" as they discover the world of bugs and insects around us. Tina explains that she did a report on bees in school and that she is really interested in bugs, something that she gets bugged (no pun intended) about in school. Luci explains that it's nothing she should worry about and Michael acts out the story of "The Ant and the Grasshopper." In school, Ryan, Winnie The Pooh, Bobby, DJ, Stephanie, Malcolm, Dewey, Emily Yeung, Littlefoot, Ash, Tai, the rest of their friends and the kids learn more about different insects from spiders and flies, to beautiful butterflies. When Barney shows off his favorite bugs, fireflies (or lightning bugs), they show how even the smallest creatures can show love (they spell out "I LOVE YOU" with their lights).
