BIRTHDAY: JANUARY 28
Ernie is mischievous and plays practical jokes on his good buddy Bert. He loves singing and playing musical instruments, and taking baths with Rubber Ducky. Bert and Ernie show that friends can have different likes and dislikes and how to appreciate similarities and differences. They help each other see the perspective of others and understand different emotions. His free-spirited approach to his successes and failures makes him one of Sesame Street’s most enduring and likeable characters.
