Segments from Sesame Street that were included in this book include:
- Ernie calling his bathtub "Rosie"

- Cookie Monster uses Ernie's phone for a long time while Ernie waits impatiently for Cookie Monster to end his phone conversation because he expects an important phone call from Bert.
In initial (and most) copies of this book, a page towards the end, containing a photo of a small girl crying, had no text. Later printings added the line "Sometimes we feel like crying" to this page.
