Bert and Ernie fans were recently overjoyed to learn that their favorite Sesame Street duo have always been more than friends in the eyes of their writer. Former Sesame Street writer, Mark Saltzman, shared his perspective on Bert and Ernie’s relationship in a recent interview with Queerty.
Of course, the two are long-time pop culture icons, and Saltzman’s revelation seems to be making more waves today! While Sesame Street may not be on board with the idea (they have issued a statement), the love between Bert and Ernie can’t be denied. Find out what Saltzman and the rest of the internet have said. And, see what you make of the epic bond between these two muppets!
