Bert and Ernie's apartment is clearly a sub-basement apartment in the 123 Sesame Street building, but often when looking out a window from inside the apartment, it looks as if it is on the first floor (i.e. the half-walls seen in front of the windows when outside the building aren't there, and when people are at the window, they're standing straight up, not crouched over as one would expect).
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."
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.
