This issue featured the first appearance of the Happy Healthy Monsters calendar. In the area outside Sesame Street, the feature ¡Hola, Enrique! serves as an introduction to a major new character on the series Dragon Tales. Enrique was introduced to the program in a third season that premiered after a hiatus of well over two years between new episodes of the program. The new season premiered in the same month as the date of this magazine, February 2005. This feature included a maze and a cut-out of the new character Enrique.
