[[folder: Rub a Dub Dub, Oscar's in the Tub--Why?!]]
* In the song "Do the Rubber Duck", several characters are in Ernie's bathtub, including ''Oscar''! Why? Related, why does Oscar wash his hands in the "Lead Away" video?

* There are a lot of headscratchers in this one. First of all, why is the mouse connected on the wrong end? Also, why didn't it appear for the first few scenes (look closely!) Then the biggest of all: When Ernie asks Bert to [[spoiler: take a picture of himself holding the mouse to be teleported inside the computer]], he simply places the camera on top of the computer monitor, then clicks the mouse, which was ''connected to the computer'', and somehow the camera was able to teleport both Bert and the mouse.

*** His first name is Count (like [[VanVonHunter Van Von Vaughn]])? He's not, say, Humbert Von Count, Count of Streetsylvania?

** Alternatively, Dorothy ''does'' have powers. I mean, people can read her mind.

[[folder: A digital watch would be a pretty neat idea]]
* Why doesn't Captain Breakfast have a means of telling what time it is? One would think it would help him know when it's too late to continue promoting breakfast in a location and start moving west. Or go back to Breakfast HQ or whatever and work on his technique. Something other than trying to persuade children to eat breakfast at the wrong time of day. (Of course, one could also ask why the first words out of the girl's mouth were "I don't want any breakfast" instead of "Excuse me, sir? It's lunchtime right now.")

** As for exactly how old they are, it has been confirmed that Elmo and Abby are three, Big Bird is six, Prairie Dawn is seven, and Betty Lou is four. Grover, Sonny Friendly, and Guy Smiley are adults because they have jobs, they may act like kids but they're just goofballs. We know that Mama, Papa, and Grandmama Bear, Louie, Jill, Granny Bird, Ingrid and Humphrey are all adults, because they have kids, although their exact ages are unspecified. Frazzle, Telly and Baby Bear are in daycare, so they are about four/five. Oscar and Grundetta are adults because they live on their own and are about to get married. Natasha is a baby and she can crawl and copy sounds (sort of), so I'd put her at about nine months old.

** It was very serious; they were even teased at Luis and Marina's wedding as the next couple in line to be wed. Linda just moved before they could make it official.

[[folder: Oscar's Childhood]]
In a ChristmasEpisode, several characters try to stop Oscar from being such a killjoy on Christmas by doing to him what the ghost does to Scrooge in ''Literature/AChristmasCarol''. One woman tells Oscar that in his infancy, he was a CheerfulChild. However, Oscar claims she's wrong and that he was grumpy even as a baby. Who's right? Also, at one point, the woman sings "You loved our Christmas trash, you even offered cash". How can a baby offer cash?
