Big Bird is sent to live far from Sesame Street by a pesky social worker. Unhappy, Big Bird runs away from his foster home, prompting the rest of the Sesame Street gang to go on a cross-country journey to find him.
The newscaster, played by Chevy Chase, opens his broadcast by quoting the theme song from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood (1968), another PBS kids' production which became popular during the same period as Sesame Street.
Ladies and gentlemen, would you please rise for the Grouch Anthem.
Oscar the Grouch: No, no, no! With the Grouch Anthem, you stay sitting down! Down in front there!
When Big Bird is first arriving with the Dodos' home by car, they turn onto the street where they live and the speed limit sign says 40 km/h. They are supposed to be in the USA where all speed limit signs say mph. (The movie was filmed in Canada.)
In the closing credits, the Count counts the crew members. At the end of the closing credits, the Count gives a final tally.
