Notes

  • In the quiz, no Sesame Street Muppets appear; instead, there is a monkey.
  • The monkey puppet used here was one of the several made for Muppets Tonight, and was based after Quongo (a gorilla created for The Muppet Show).
  • Before the quiz, when Elmo approaches the droor, he tells the viewers to be quiet and asks quietly the question because the droor was taking a nap and Elmo did not want to disturb him. So he attempts to wake him up and the droor eventually does.
