When Will Lee--who played [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold crotchety storekeeper with a heart of gold]] Mr. Hooper--died mid-season in 1983, the show [[RealLifeWritesThePlot tackled the character's death head-on]], with honesty, dignity and respect, in what is still considered a milestone of children's programming. His store's ownership has changed hands a number of times--Mr. Hooper left the store to his assistant David, who sold it to black retired firefighter Mr. Handford following his own departure, who handed over ownership to Japanese-American Alan in 1998--but the store retains Mr. Hooper's name to this day.

%%* BigDamnMovie: 1985's ''[[Film/SesameStreetPresentsFollowThatBird Follow That Bird]]'', which required a bigger, more elaborate street set in Toronto (and in the same studio where ''Series/FraggleRock'' was shot) to make it look good on the silver screen.
