A Barney Bubble from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
|First appearance||Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (1995)|
|Latest appearance||Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3 (2002)|
A Barney Bubble is an enemy that appears only in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its reissue, Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3. A Barney Bubble is a purple ball with blue feet, although its artwork depicts it as white with red feet. Its name is a pun on the name of the character Barney Rubble from The Flintstones.
Two Barney Bubbles appear in the level Monkeys' Favorite Lake. They quickly run back and forth. The Red Yoshi cannot eat a Barney Bubble, and he can defeat it only by throwing an egg at it. Whenever the Red Yoshi stomps on a Barney Bubble, it produces bubbles, which the Red Yoshi can eat and spit out for a variety of uses. Bubble Dayzees produce the same type of bubble.
In Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, two more Barney Bubbles appear in World 6's Secret Stage, Endless World of Yoshis, in the forest area, making a total of four Barney Bubbles.
