When the first 15 Season 3 episodes originally aired, they had end credits that were as long as Seasons 1-2, and the season was funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and "Viewers Like You" (the same sponsors from the first season).
Another two underwriters, Chuck E. Cheese's and Mead Johnson, joined the show starting on September 11, 1995, one week after Labor Day, for funding of further reruns of this season of Barney & Friends, along with five new episodes that aired on the first week of October.
On reruns from November 1997 and later, the Barney Says segment was removed from all Season 3 episodes. At that time, Mead Johnson left the show, and there were two new underwriters -- Chef Jr. and Kellogg's, which also funded Season 4.
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting also left the show in 1998 (a couple months before Season 5 premiered) with no additional changes to the sponsors, and PBS officially ended broadcasts of the first three seasons in 1999. However, the fundings remained unchanged until 2000, when Chef Jr. last sponsored the show.
