Picture Production Description
"Imagination" A prologue, where imaginary monsters torment Ernie as he tries to sleep, leading to the song, was originally filmed, but test screenings found the segment's message was lost because of the opening segment.[2] A new opening was filmed, which was then woven into footage from the original shoot.
