The world is stunned to learn Sesame Streetsy Bert and Ernie were modelled after a gay couple!
Wow, did I catch shit about this on another post! The characters were created in the '60s, then got a script writer in the 80's who was gay. In a recent interview, he alluded to writing for the characters based upon himself and his partner. Suspect Frank Oz, the creator, came unglued because one of his creations (for which there in NO sexual orientation) was suddenly provided an orientation with out him (Oz) being consulted.
