Becoming more sensitive to gender issues, Fred Rogers slightly altered the lyrics to Everybody's Fancy for this CD release:

  • Original lyrics: "Only girls can be the mommies. Only boys can be the daddies."
  • Altered lyrics: "Girls grow up to be the mommies. Boys grow up to be the daddies."

Some tracks from this album were used in the compilation of It's Such a Good Feeling: The Best of Mister Rogers.
