    Okay... Joey Mazzarino stated that each episode of the 40th season will contain certain nods to the long-time fans, like a cameo by Biff and Sully or something else. This thread is meant to help us find them while watching the new season. Please post here what you find, where you found it if applicable, and which episode it was featured. Thanks guys.

    In today's episode, Big Bird has stickers on his suitcase that reference the previous places he's been: Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Montana and possibly China.

    I don't know if it counts or not, but they had the Poco Loco parrot puppet in the Rain forest bit. But I'm assuming it's considered just a standard parrot puppet.

    Big Bird kept messing up saying the real estate agents name, and that is how he use to do with Mr. Hooper.

    He was the first thing seen when the theme transitioned to the main street scene. He appears later towards the end with Bob and the rest of the cast.

    Too bad there weren't stickers for oceanview, illonois or grouchland.

    I didn't see anything. There was something on the milk carton in Hooper's that look like something, but I couldn't see it.

    Talk about hidden Gems.... this was a blink and you miss it instance....

    On baby Bears box of Crayons, there's a large picture of the Alligator King holding a large crayon. Now, trust me when I say this is a blink and you miss it, and only in wide screen type deal. It was only really visible at the end of the street segment, and even then, it was something you could only see for 2 seconds and only if you watch this in widescreen... it was shown earlier, but it was at an angle and out of focus, so you really couldn't tell.

    Anyone find the hidden gem in "Cow Monster Pair"?

    I saw a behind-the-scenes pic on the Wiki of Paul Rugg performing Roosevelt Franklin... does that mean RF will be making a cameo this season as well?

    It wasn't really "hidden" of course, but I'm sure Kermit the Frog's appearance on the Elmo's World segment of the first episode would count for this. And I noticed Big Bird's suitcase too- that was great. I would hope China and Japan would all be on there too. Also, in the Elmo's World segment, when they were showing clips of frogs, there was a live action clip of a frog I recognized from one of the classic '70s songs about a little froggie swimming (can't remember the exact name right now, but I definitely recognized the clip).

    I'd expect so - there's a reason the puppet would have been on set.

    If there was one, it was really well hidden, probably out of focus, and it could have been even cropped off of wisescreen, if you're not watching it in WS in your area... again, with the King sized Crayons with the Alligator King, you could only really see it in WS... and it was barely covered up by the local PBS logo... I'm thinking each episode was intended to have one, but it could easily be just out of frame, blurry in the background, or maybe even edited for time. I'd need to watch it again...

    It's a Long Hard Climb? Yeah... that was it. Don't know if that was an intended gem or not, since it was cheaper to use old footage anyway. And I still count the Grover Camp Wannagohoma E-mail as a gem...

    I think I caught it. In the opening shot of Chris, Telly and Elmo in Hoopers Store, on the right hand side of the screen in the backround. There were pictures on the wall. I think one was I think David, and perhaps the other propritors of Hoopers. Just a thought.

    If that is true that would be awesome.

    In one episode, it seems that there's a nod to Richard Hunt and Placido Flamingo. In one scene we see Nitya Vidyasagar, as Leela, reading a biography of Placido Flamingo - penned by Hunt.
