  • This was Richard Hunt's last season before his passing in January 1992. Hunt performed in several Street stories and inserts taped during the production year, most of which would air posthumously. He continued to be credited as a performer through Season 31.
  • This is the final season to include the "Sesame Closing Theme," the funky instrumental played during the funding credits since 1972.
  • In this season, and after Season 25, the closing credit sequence, which typically appeared on Friday episodes, is also shown during the season premiere.
  • For the first time since 1977, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting resumed funding Sesame Street, which would continue in succeeding seasons (except for Season 30).
