* TheOtherDarrin: Played with. Fran's animatronic was entirely redesigned for the second season so it absolutely does not resemble her first incarnation, but her voice actress (Jessica Walter) stayed on and played her for the entire series.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: This was originally intended to be a dramatic feature film called ''The Natural History Project'' with Warner Bros. set to distribute and Creator/JimHenson directing. However ''TheLandBeforeTime'' was released and Henson decided to turn the idea into a sitcom, which CBS greenlighted. It wasn't until Henson's death and CBS putting the show into turnaround that the show got made.
