The setting is in a small street in a city where children and furry puppet monsters learn about numbers, the alphabet and other pre-school subjects taught in commercial spots, songs and games. Written by

Did You Know?
Hooper's Store had gone through a few redesigns over the years. From 1969-1998, the building was green with a yellow and black checkered design below the window looking out front, an old-fashioned Bell Telephone System logo on the left side, and a green and white-striped awning overlooking the front window. Various murals were painted on the building during those years. In 1998, when Alan took over, the entire front of the building was repainted a bright blue. A new red vinyl awning stretched over the front window, and around the corner to a new side window, with white letters reading "Hooper's Store" on both sides. In 2002, the building was repainted a pale orange color. Starting in 2008, Hooper's store got a complete overhaul. The exterior was painted blue, and the awning is tan with red stripes. The Bell Telephone System sign hangs on the brick wall, above the awning that faces the arbor. The interior is more of a convenience store, with refrigerators, and magazines and newspapers on a special shelf. The walls are light green. The store's "first dollar" and Big Bird's drawing of Mr. Hooper are hanging on the wall. See more

The episodes that originally aired on a Friday somewhere between 1969 and 2000 had an additional message in the funding credits saying "Recorded at Reeves Teletape III" until 1987. Starting around the 18th season of the show, the message then said, "Facilities by Unitel Video, Inc." See more
