Should Bert and Ernie Get Married?

August 12, 2011  |  

People are signing a petition asking that Sesame Street writers script a wedding between long-time characters Bert and Ernie. Signers of the petition, which can be found on, claim that a wedding between the two roommates would teach children about acceptance.

But a writer over at Your Tango thinks this is completely inappropriate for many reasons, like the fact that they’re puppets and young children might not fully grasp the message.

Read what she and a Sesame Street spokesperson had to say about this request.

What do you think should Bert and Ernie get married? Why or why not?
