  • Season 15 Episode 34: Show 1839

  • When Will Lee (the actor who played Mr. Hooper) died, the cast and crew at Children's Television Workshop decided not to make up an excuse for his departure, but deal with the actual reason for his absence head-on. Also, they thought of showing flashbacks of Mr. Hooper but chose not to because young viewers would have assumed that Mr. Hooper was alive after finding out the meaning of death.
