But, how does anyone feel about Bert being in at least one street story this upcoming season? Seems Eric has some time to play him and Grover, but there's just not all that time for Steve to play Ernie. But then again, we know very little other than the parody segments, Super Grover 2.0, words on the street and first half of the episodes. We have no idea what's going to be in those gaps. We may get some of the rest of the claymation Ernie and Bert segment, we may just get more old E&B segments... we just don't know. But I really hope that Steve at least was available to do at least ONE new skit with Ernie and Bert. Just like I said with Big Bird, if they disappear entirely from the street, even little kids would take notice. Even the Count is appearing a little more, thanks to the solid teamwork of Jerry and Matt. The only characters kids don't care about are Sherlock Hemlock, Don Music, and maybe even Guy Smiley to some extent... but even Sherlock and Guy managed to have cameos lately.
