  • Although the album is named after Purk and her photo is prominently featured on the cover, she is not featured on this CD, due to a lack of archive material for audio use.
  • Today's Sesamstraat viewers might not recognize Pino's voice. This CD features two of his previous performers. Pino was performed by Erik J. Meijer from 1979 to 1982, after which Leo Dijkgraaf took over the bird from 1983 to 1990. Since then, Pino has had a female puppeteer, Renée Menschaar, who is not featured on this CD for the same reason as Purk's absence.
