  • This is the first Sesamstraat CD-and-booklet produced by Rubinstein: it would later be followed by Slapen and Dierendingen, which focused (respectively) on sleeping and animals.
  • The booklet has quite a few spelling errors and lyrical mistakes.
  • The booklet was released with two different covers. One version featured photos of Oscar and the Count; the other had an illustration of the Count, holding a lantern.
