I've noticed that at the beginning of Big Hello 1-20, there's quite a few seconds of silence before Big Bird starts talking. That segment seems like something that would open an episode, so I wonder if perhaps that segment originally began with the ending of the theme song and it was muted for this release (even though the end of the theme can be heard at the start of a few episodes and can be heard as an instrumental at the end of each episode).

Of course, unless we can find an episode with it, or maybe if Sesame Workshop puts it online with the music starting it (if some YouTube puts it online with the music there, how would we know he didn't just edit it to the beginning?), it'll be awhile before we can ever know.
