BERT & ERNIE: GAY?
I've always been made moody by the silly rumors about Bert and Ernie being gay. After all, not only are they puppets, but characters on a children's program. Seriously, do you think something like this would be a topic on a kid's show? Would you let your kid watch a show with such a topic? Of course not! So, to put the matters to rest, I've taken the official 1993 statement of (then) Children's Television Workshop which not only debunks the gay rumor, but also the rumor that Ernie would be retired after Jim Henson's death.
