    The O that kermit looks through at the start of the show lights up in season 1.
    In season 1, Fozzie looks like he's trying to swallow a banana.
    Speaking parts for Mildred Huxtetter MA.BA.DA.D.U.M.P became sparse.

    Speaking of Wayne and Wanda, I just remembered that there was a later episode which I don't remember all the details of, but I do know they were looking back over Kermit's life, as in This Is Your Life. Two of the guests were Wayne and Wanda, who were upset because Kermit sacked them. Kermit couldn't remember why so he re-hired them and (instead of Sam) introduced them. But no sooner had they started to sing then he remember why he had sacked them in the first place and once again they ended up out on their ears!

    If you look at the audions at the end of the panel in the Charles Aznovour ep.When the panels done, Sam The American Eagle is still there, but when they show the audions, look very good, then you see on almost the last row Sam sitting!(Sorry for the bad english.)

    Other differences:

    Gonzo looked different. He looked liked he was sleepy all the time.

    Piggy also looked different. There were times we she had a different voice. I didn't really like her other voice.

    All the episodes(except the Ethel Merman ep) had "At The Dance". In later seasons not many episodes would have these.

    George was the Janitor. He would be replaced by Beaureguard.

    I know what you mean. It's kind of strange to hear Piggy sound like Dawn Music or Gladys the Cow. As talented a performer as Richard Hunt was, he was much better with Beaker, Scooter and Janice.

    All the episodes (except the Peter Ustinov, Valerie Harper, and Twiggy eps) had official Talk Spots. In later seasons not many episodes would have these.

    That's true. Kermit did say to Robin as they are getting ready to watch the film within this film that "It's kinda sorta how we began."
