    Why did the Dragon Tales episode "Goodbye Little Caterpoozle" differ from other kiddie show episodes about the death of a pet?

    You mean the people who worked on that show thought it was better to give the episode a surprise ending that the pet is not dead after all than to be like other kiddie shows in which the animal really is dead?

    Why did the Dragon Tales episode "Goodbye Little Caterpoozle" differ from other kiddie show episodes about the death of a pet?

    I know that they did not have Quetzal efficiently explain what happened. They could have and should have had Quetzal say "Unlike other living creatures, caterpoozles eventually reach a point where they go inactive for a while, and when you see them active again, they are butterfairies." I know...

    Why did the Dragon Tales episode "Goodbye Little Caterpoozle" differ from other kiddie show episodes about the death of a pet?

    The Dragon Tales episode "Goodbye Little Caterpoozle" differed from older kiddie show episodes about the death of a pet in that the story goes that Cassie's Caterpoozle (which is supposed to be a caterpillar) had gone into the pupa stage and Cassie incorrectly thinks the caterpoozle is dead...

    Beautiful Day Monster and his resemblance to Sam the Eagle

    I just found out that Beautiful Day Monster existed. Has anybody here noticed that Beautiful Day Monster bears a striking resemblance to Sam the Eagle? Are they the same puppet?

    One Way vs. Don't Walk

    I could never get into One Way-the only of the two I ever got into was Don't Walk. I think it's because there's a Don't Walk sign with a push button (updated to pictorial symbols) near what used to be the bakery where I learned of the term peanut flour. In fact, when in 2016 it was all over...

    Would 90s Sesame Street have ever done an episode like this? Why or why not?

    If an episode like the one I had a dream about had made it to broadcast how would the target age for Sesame Street have reacted upon seeing that as an episode?

    Would 90s Sesame Street have ever done an episode like this? Why or why not?

    Does that mean the world may never know what would have been approved for broadcast and what would have been scrapped in the 90s?

    Would 90s Sesame Street have ever done an episode like this? Why or why not?

    Well, the question I have is if the story seen in my aforementioned dream would have gotten approved for broadcast by whoever was at Sesame Workshop (in those days it was Children's Television Workshop) who made the approvals at the time or scrapped.

    Would 90s Sesame Street have ever done an episode like this? Why or why not?

    What makes you say that as the Tootsie Pop commercial ends, "The world may never know" if 90s Sesame Street would have done an episode like the one I had a dream about way back in 1995?

    Would 90s Sesame Street have ever done an episode like this? Why or why not?

    In the days of Sesame Street's original format of a main story interrupted by various short segments (the mid 90s) I had a dream that there was an episode in which an orange monster has been locked in a cage, and when the show went back to the main story, the monster was pleading to be let out...

    Could Between the Lions ever come back?

    If that's a true story, I hope the medical people these individuals had to be with helped them to keep going, and even if the AAPB deal never happened, it wouldn't have been the end of the world.

    Could Between the Lions ever come back?

    The Jim Henson stamp was only available in 2005. You are exactly correct that it was Sesame Street's 30th year when Big Bird was put on a stamp to honor Sesame Street as part of the 1999 Celebrate the Century: 1970s sheet.

    Why are there no available Henson Productions Computer or Video Games?

    Actually, in the late 90s, there was a series of educational computer games called "Muppet Kids Reading and Thinking Series". It's mentioned in the "Muppet Kids" article on Muppet Wikia, and to see videos of the gameplay of these games, look them up on YouTube.
