Although this is a Warner Bros. release, the label design copies the Sesame Street Records label design from this period.

A sequel LP, In Harmony 2, was released in 1981 on Columbia BFC 37641. While there is no Muppet content on it, a notice on the back cover says, "A royalty is being donated to the Children's Television Workshop and various children's charities."
