Notes

  • This episode does not feature a home video or an e-mail.
  • Dr. Bunsen Honeydew can be seen in the background in the crowd gathered in the football arena.
  • The segment was considered for Kinect Sesame Street TV season 2, but Curriculum Specialist Sue Scheiner recommended against it. It was deemed dated, citing the flashbulb camera used by Mr. Noodle, the girl in the film spot taking photos to be developed, and the lack of camera phones.[1]
