In the December 1969 issue, Jerry Juhl wrote what the magazine called an "original Christmas time puppet play."

The play, The Purple-Necked Black-Bearded Blatch, totaled five pages, with puppet design credited to Jim Henson. Patterns for the puppets were also included in the five page spread.

The characters included in the story were twin sister and brother Zing and Zang Zong, Mr. Figg, and the Purple-Necked Black-Bearded Blatch.



Issues in January and March included Sesame Street guides. The former featured activities such as "The Polka-Dotted Monster Hunt" with Alice Braithwaite Goodyshoes.
