Bert and Ernie to Wed?

A petition for Bert and Ernie to have a wedding is causing a stir.  Sesame Workshop issued a statement, saying, “Bert and Ernie are good friends. They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves.”

And after all, are there any married couples on Sesame Street that we hear about?  In the end, I think there’s no need to sexualize relationships, or go beyond friendships, to such young viewers.
