** Big Bird, through his drawing, calls him Mr. Looper and Maria gently corrects him. It's not hard to see it as Big Bird saying goodbye by performing their RunningGag one last time.
** In something of a follow-up skit, Big Bird, Maria and David fondly remember him, which puts both the drawing and old footage on display.
** During Mr. Hooper's tenure, there was a RunningGag of Big Bird mispronouncing his name - leading to a comically frustrated correction. Caroll Spinney once related a quote from the late Will Lee about why Big Bird was always being corrected:

** During Mr. Hooper's tenure, there was a RunningGag of Big Bird mispronouncing his name - leading to a comically frustrated correction. At the end of the famous TearJerker scene, Big Bird looks at his drawing and says "You know, I'm gonna miss you, Mr. Looper," and Maria gently corrects him. It's not hard to see it as Big Bird saying goodbye by performing their RunningGag one last time.

Caroll Spinney once related a quote from the late Will Lee about that RunningGag why Big Bird was always being corrected:



*** The in-canon effect of the heartwarming eulogy Mr Hooper got in spite of being the ButtMonkey. Big Bird couldn't even get the guy's name right. He still loved him and couldn't comprehend him not being a part of his life anymore.

*** The in-canon effect of the heartwarming eulogy fact that Mr Hooper got in spite was a bit of being the ButtMonkey. ButtMonkey via that RunningGag makes his ultimate eulogy even more heartwarming. Big Bird couldn't even get the guy's name right. He right, but he still loved him and couldn't comprehend him not being a part of his life anymore.anymore.
** In something of a follow-up skit in a later episode, Big Bird, Maria and David fondly remember him, which puts both the drawing and old footage on display. Yet another episode had a bird art collector offer Big Bird 100 bags of birdseed for the picture, but after another montage of old Mr. Hooper footage, Big Bird refused because he "couldn't say goodbye to Mr. Hooper again."

* The depiction of Julia, the first puppet with autism, is absolutely heartwarming. She is treated as part of the gang and her symptoms, including stimming, aren't ridiculed but completely accepted and treated as normal. Julia herself is an absolutely adorable bundle of joy.

* Another one that's also somewhat of a tearjerker. Spinney had a very frosty relationship with director-writer-executive producer Jon Stone, with Stone frequently yelling at Spinney for not getting takes right or some other mistakes made. Cast member Emilio Delgado (Luis) eventually got fed up with Stone's behavior, and when Stone started snapping at Spinney again, Delgado angrily stormed into the control room and gave Stone a very vocal and very confrontational TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. Delgado later admitted he could have lost his job for this confrontation, but did it anyway, because, in his mind, "Luis is very protective of Big Bird."

* Finally, in a closing of the RunningGag, Mr. Snuffalupagus finally being revealed. Snuffy gets acquainted with the rest of the cast at last, and the adults apologize for not believing Big Bird ("[[CrowningMomentOfFunny I think you should get that in writing]]"). The reveal was made primarily to teach children not to be afraid about telling adults serious issues.

* Spinney's relationships with his fellow cast mates fall into this as well. Spinney had a very frosty relationship with director-writer-executive producer Jon Stone, with Stone frequently yelling at Spinney for not getting takes right or some other mistakes made.
