  • The book perpetuates the myth that "Muppet" is a combination of marionettes and puppets.
  • The book erroneously states that Rowlf the Dog was one of the original characters on Sesame Street.
  • The book repeatedly refers to the Henson Company as "Jim Henson Productions," although, by the year the book was published, the name had long since changed to The Jim Henson Company.
  • The book states that after Jim Henson's death in 1990, Frank Oz refused to continue playing Bert, and that the Ernie and Bert puppets remained unused in a drawer (presumably at least until the time of the book's publication in 2002).
