  • For the tenth season, Jim Henson and Michael Frith were given the task of coming up with some new Muppet characters to revitalize the show. One of Frith's suggestions was a living pile of trash who would act as a font of wisdom. This idea was rejected by the Sesame Street team, but was recycled a few years later to become Fraggle Rock's Marjory the Trash Heap.[1]
  • Starting with this season (all the way up to 1982), an alternate version of the Children's Television Workshop logo is featured. The exact same Roman-style plaque is used, except that it was printed with standard font (in the same font as the show's letters and numbers) as opposed to the crudely-painted text on the earlier logo.
