Kids World's Adventures of When I Grow Up... is the eighteenth episode of Season 1 of Kids World's Adventure of Barney & Friends.
Ryan, Winnie The Pooh, Shawn, Derek, Min, Kathy andang the gang dress up in different costumes of grown-up jobs. There is only one problem - Shawn doesn't want to grow up, in fear of doing a job. Barney explains that there are many jobs to choose from and that the things in school can help you in the future. This leads the kids to explore different professions, including a waitress (Kathy), a cowboy (Shawn) and lots more. With help of the Super Dee Duper Sound Machine, Barney, Ryan, Winnie The Pooh, Bobby, DJ, Stephanie, Malcolm, Dewey, Emily Yeung, Littlefoot, Ash, Tai and the rest of their friends learn about different sounds for many different careers. The kids show Barney some careers that will be fun, including being a singer or a clown. Shawn isn't scared to do a grownup job now, but he's afraid that when he grows up, he can't be friends with Barney anymore. Barney explains that Shawn will be his friend "forever and ever."
