  • Kids might not be able to recognize Pino's voice, since Erik J. Meijer performed Pino during the early 1980s only; Renee Menschaar is Pino's performer these days.
  • "The Best Friend Blues" is the first time Big Bird is mentioned in the Dutch Sesame Street, as Pino's "Neef Jan" (Cousin John). Big Bird never appears on the show, but he is featured in Sesame Street Live shows, dubbed DVD releases, and computer games.
