Ernie and Bert were the Muppet equivalent of Neil Simon's Felix Ungar and Oscar Madison, best friends who were polar opposites yet looked out for one another at all times. Their closeness was fodder for much speculation, with some saying they were actually the first gay (albeit secret) couple on television. If you've seen (or even heard of) Avenue Q, then you definitely know for sure that roommates Rod and Nicky are parodies of this endearing twosome. Click below to watch some of their best skits:
"Doin' The Pigeon"
"At The Beach" - with a cameo by Sherlock Hemlock
"Heeeere Fishy, Fishy, Fishy" - my bro's fave sketch
"Exploring A Pyramid"
"La La La Song"
"Imagination"- thanks to Fats for reminding me of this!

like to sing (in the car, the loo, anywhere!), dance (more like traipse around), laugh uproariously, read voraciously, watch movies, enjoy the company of friends; eternally wishing it were christmas all year round, amusement park junkie (the higher the ride, the better!), unabashed cryer in cinemas (potential seatmates, beware!), devout carnivore (you can count the veggies i do eat in one hand)...also have a bordering-on-the-absurd collection of all things froggy given by friends and next of kin. maybe one day, one of them'll turn out to be my prince - harharhar!!!
