** It's actually a reference to "open sesame", the idea being that the street is a place where magical things happen, something which Kermit suggested and Gordon attested to.

** On the Dutch show, the voice actors for Ernie and Bert are allowed to write their own material, and have released several albums of original material with the characters. They are the only Ernie and Bert in the world who are allowed to do that (although the German version also has its own Ernie and Bert)

** Bip Bippadotta resembles Mahna-Mahna from ''Series/TheMuppetShow'', only he has sunglasses in place of his big black eyes.
** Betty Lou is often confused with Prairie Dawn, as they are based on the same Anything Muppet pattern.

* WordSaladTitle: Arguably. Why would a street in New York City - even a fictional one - be named after an Asian seasoning?

* In a quote featured in the book ''Street Gang'' that's either this or HarsherInHindsight depending on your perspective, Kevin Clash (partially) says most people expect him to be white with glasses. While, of course, Clash is African-American and clear-sighted, it pretty accurately describes Ryan Dillon, his replacement as Elmo.

** The Two-Headed Monster! Their segments aired constantly throughout the '80s and '90s, then they were re-cast, started appearing in the "Journey to Ernie" segments, and eventually had entirely new segments made. Fans love quoting them (though now that Joey Mazzarino has left the show, who knows if they'll still be around?).

** Funny thing is, even during this supposed Dork Age, old segments (some dating as far back as the first and second seasons), continued airing, so it's not like they completely forgot their roots.
** Some could say the current season is this; still trying to figure out a much more abridged running time, cramming in a ton of segments (including the return of the dreaded ''Elmo's World'') and making the street stories a lot more childish and less mature.
