The Three Little Pigs (traditional folk tale)
- Like The Electric Company before it, Between the Lions' fifth season had far less new production. All the lions' sequences take place on the roof garden, with no other incidental characters brought in. The Information Hen is now animated, always consulting the same book at the end of both sequences.
- In this episode, Theo reads "Pigs Aplenty, Pigs Galore!" instead of Marmy. Later, Lionel reads "The Three Little Pigs" instead of Theo and Leona.
- Also, this is the first time Peter Linz has played Theo since Episode 55: Stop That Chicken!.
- If you look super close, it's clear that "The Three Little Pigs by Muffy Huffington" is not a real story. Title is just placed on another book.
- With this episode, production of the puppet segments moves to Mississippi. As a result, the library sets look much different than before.
