Names Bert, Ernie.
Special Powers Ernie’s special power is the gift of childlike mischief. Bert is much more cynical and often tires of Ernie’s pranks and gaffes – he loves Ernie really though.
Ernie said ‘You’ve got a banana in your ear!’
Bert said ‘What? I can’t hear you. I’ve got a banana in my ear…’
They said ‘Bert is evil.’ A famous website, called simply Bert is Evil, implicates Bert in a number of famous crimes, including the assassination of JFK. Say it ain’t so, Joe! Ernie is not thought to be involved in any criminal activity…
We say Bert and Ernie rule, particularly Bert’s monobrow and the pair’s taste in sweaters.
Did you know? Bert and Ernie share an apartment in the basement of 123 Sesame Street. They sleep in separate beds, though – they are not, as some people suggest, gay.
