  • Another booklet-and-CD, Monsters en Andere Enge Dingen (Monsters And Other Scary Things) was produced by Rubinstein around the same time. It was followed by a third booklet-and-CD, Dierendingen (Animal Stuff).
  • Recent Sesamstraat fans might not recognize the voice(s) of Pino, since Renée Menschaar, who's currently playing the character, is not featured on the album.
  • The booklet contains a few spelling errors and lyrical mistakes.
  • The booklet was released with two different covers: one with a photo of Ieniemienie in bed, and one with a photo of Ernie reading in bed.
