Muppet Mentions

  • When Rob visits Victor's home in the first season story "Building Bridges" (1993), Victor's younger siblings are watching TV. While no shot of the scene is shown, they're watching Sesame Street, as the then-current theme and the cold open for Episode 3092 can be heard in the background.
  • In the second season story "Just in Time" (1993), when Grandma Jenkins asks Alex if he'd like to stay for lunch, he replies "Is the sky blue? Do birds sing? Is Sesame a street?"
