    About Bert and Ernie

    Bert and Ernie are two roommates on the long-running television show Sesame Street. The two appear together in numerous skits, forming a comic duo that is one of the centerpieces of the program. Originated by Frank Oz and Jim Henson, the characters are currently performed by Muppeteers Eric Jacobson and Steve Whitmire, with Oz performing Bert occasionally since 2000.

    I always thought that Bert and Ernie are the perfect couple. I admire them and I cherish them. I also thought that they are the ideal husbands, and I wish that my love life is as rich and colorful as theirs.

    A few years back, I met someone (who shall remain anonymous) who was an executive producer at the Children's Television Workshop, and I said: you know they are so gay... He said: They look gay because they *are* gay.

      I was thinking about putting balloons in them... Maybe do a stop motion! The stuff I write, the conversation they have, are really just a bit of an autobiography... :D

      i love your set of Bert and Ernie. I too, knew that they are not just roommates but love each other :) I like the episode that Ernie couldn't sleep at night and kept making noise, but Bert was very kind to him. That was sweet.

      I used to watch Sesame street when I was a child :) I have checked many episodes of it on Youtube too. I'd like to share this with you:
      Ernie is always childish and innocent, Bert looks getting annoyed with it but actually he think of it cute inside. That makes me smile :)
