Bert and Ernie are two of Sesame Street's most iconic characters. They are meant to portray the idea that people with different personalities and characteristics can still be good friends.

We can thank Bert and Ernie for the Muppet/human interaction that has made Sesame Street so famous.

When a test episode was shown, the only Muppets included were this dynamic duo, and briefly at that. This skit was the most well-received, so producers decided to populate the world of Sesame Street with brightly colored puppets.

Occasionally, Bert and Ernie also cross over into the world of The Muppet Show.

Ernie loves his rubber duckie, which he often sings about. "Rubber Duckie" reached No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1970.

Did you know? Bert and Ernie might be named after minor characters in the famous film It's a Wonderful Life. The movie featured a policeman named Bert and a taxi driver by the name of Ernie.
