Possibly the only topic that has never been dealt with on the show is divorce. The producers tried in 1991 with an episode titled "Snuffy's Parents Get a Divorce". In the episode, Snuffy's parents are shown arguing and his sister, Alice, is shown reacting by hitting her teddy bear. The script was reviewed by child psychologists who suggested an emphasis on telling children that if their parents get divorced, their parents will still love them and the divorce is not their fault. The episode was tested on children in daycare centers. But the children came away with those same negative messages. The episode was never aired. In another 1991 episode, Kermit the Frog interviews a bird who sings about how her parents still love her even though they no longer live together though it is not directly stated that her parents are divorced.

In 2006, selected episodes from the first five seasons of the series (1969-1973) were released to DVD. Due to rights issues regarding music and some footage, slight edits were made to these episodes, sometimes involving substituting other segments. In addition, the 5 complete episodes in the set (entitled Sesame Street: Old School Vol. 1) are each preceded by newly made animated segments introducing each episode.
