Notes

  • This episode is dedicated to Jeff Moss.
  • The Sesame Street sign has a new look beginning with this episode, with a thinner yellow border and a rounder half-circle containing the "CTW" in it. It replaces the original Sesame Street sign that had been used since the very first episode.
  • This is the first appearance of Alan and a new design of Hooper's Store.
  • This marks the debut of new designs for Baby Bear and Rosita; Baby Bear's figure is slimmed down, and is given a whisp of hair on the top of his head. Rosita's face is made slightly wider, and her head is given more hair.
  • This episode features the first appearance of Elmo's World and Monsters in Day Care, and is the first show where a Sesame character appears throughout the episode to introduce segments (this practice will end by Season 33, with the advent of repeated segments for every episode).
