I Wanna Build a 'Bert and Ernie's Apartment'-Type Set

    I wanna build a set in the style of Bert and Ernie's apartment.

    I have a few questions.

    Does anyone have detailed photo's of the apartment set?

    Does anyone know how they did it with the chairs (height etc)?

    Does anyone know who build these kind of sets for Sesame Street?

    I did some research but what I found wasn't really satisfying.

    Love from Holland!

    P.S.: Fun fact: In Holland they do have a replica of the apartment set somewhere for Dutch 'Bert en Ernie'-sketches

    You could probably ask someone like @D'Snowth - he's really good at building sets.

    Miniatures, yes, though I haven't ever built full-size sets.

    Also a miniature of the apartment?

    I always wondered if that first picture was actually from a scene.

    Which skit had Count and Sully again? I feel like I saw it before, but I forget which one.

    You're thinking of a sketch from Episode 1156 divided into three parts about the number 2 where :super: asks :), :batty: and Sully what their favorite number is, none of them giving him the right answer.

    Oh, so this very well may have just been a promotional shot, or a skit we're just unaware of.

    No, I meant the one from the picture above. But yes, I have seen that one.

    There's speculation that there was no actual skit being taped that day, but rather, that was just a photo being taken for publicity or something along those lines.

    That makes sense.

    Wow, that is a great picture of the set. Does someone know the technique they used for the blue skies behind the windows?

    It could very well be craft paper or something, lol; seems like a pretty easy technique.
