[ # ] How can Sesame Street say Bert & Ernie are not gay and have them sing this song?
September 20th, 2018 under Sesame Street/Muppets


Over the weekend, former Sesame Street writer Mark Saltzman told Queerty that he based Bert and Ernie on his relationship with film editor Arnold Glassman.

Then Frank Oz who created them chimed in with, “It seems Mr. Mark Saltzman was asked if Bert & Ernie are gay. It’s fine that he feels they are. They’re not, of course. But why that question? Does it really matter? Why the need to define people as only gay? There’s much more to a human being than just straightness or gayness.”

I would be able to take Oz’s words more seriously if Sesame Street did not post the roommates signing the Ding Along Song. I mean that is a slang reference for the male genitalia, right? Actually, the whole song sounds like it is paying homage to the ding dong. But it might just be me and my very sick mind. Is it?
