Trivia

When Will Lee died, producers considered avoiding the issue of death and telling the child viewers that Mr. Hooper had moved away or possibly replacing him with another actor. After much discussion, they decided to tell the audience that Mr. Hooper had died and the writers created a segment in which Big Bird learns about death. In the scene, the cast members are in tears as they are still grieving over the loss of Will Lee. The segment was adapted into a children's book titled "I'll Miss You, Mr. Hooper". See more »
