Here is something that has puzzled me for a long time. An article about the Texas Sesame Place described something called Snuffle Ball:
It is shown (without description) on both the 1981 and 1984 park maps:
However, it is shown IN TWO DIFFERENT PLACES! Once in front of Rainbow Pyramid and once behind it!
Hopefully we get an answer someday!

This section of the 1984 park map intrigued me. It reads:
Kid's as well as adults can now learn basic programming skills on "user friendly" computers at Sesame Place. A number of courses are offered and two popular computer languages are featured: BASIC, one of the most popular programs in use today, is sophisticated enough for home, school and business applications. LOGO, a creative programming language, offers colorful graphics that encourage kids to carry out their own commands. Both languages are available to kids as well as adults. For more information on prices, times and course descriptions, pick up the Sesame Place Computer Campus brochure at the guest relations window or in the computer gallery or call (215)752-4900.
The park map had two images, the top one appears to be a classroom setting, the bottom being The Computer Gallery.
The phone number is still used for Sesame Place. I wonder where these classes were taught and how much they cost. Hopefully someone will post the "Sesame Place Computer Campus brochure" someday!

The Perils of Miss Prairie was a stage show that ran at the Big Bird Theater during the 1994 and 1995 seasons.
Muppet Wiki describes it as:
The Perils of Miss Prairie was a stage show presented at Sesame Place in the summer of 1994. The Sesame Street characters star in a musical show in which Oscar the Grouch threatens to take away Prairie Dawn's ice cream parlor. Elmo helps save the day. The show title was a nod to the 1914 silent film serial The Perils of Pauline.
