* The song he wrote for Series/TheElectricCompany1971, "N'T" has the singer trying to get a grouch to come out of his shell and play. In the end, he succeeds. While a fan may expect a bit of sarcasm from Lehrer, he sounds sincere and supportive the entire song towards his opposite. ([[TalkingToHimself Also played by him.]])
* It's kind of cute that when he comes back out to take a bow after his filmed appearance in Oslo, Norway, he only gives a shy little nod. he almost seems surprised that people would applaud his darkly comic songs. It's also gratifying - the audience was pretty cautious throughout the recording, so it must've come as a surprise to Tom that they actually appreciated his performance.
