Ernie Tickets

Ernie Tickets

Ernie is a "Sesame Street" character and a muppet. This character was first popularized when the segment "Bert and Ernie" became one of the main focuses of the show. Bert was presented to be the roommate, and the calmer one of the two. Ernie on the other hand was the troublemaker; he would keep his roommate awake at night when he would want to do trivial things, like counting the sheep or playing the saxophone. This segment was carried on to the spin-off show, "Play With Me Sesame", a show that Ernie co hosted.  Another segment that became well-liked on this show was "Ernie Says". He, along with the rest of the characters from the show, tour the country on the "Sesame Street Live" show. By choosing some of the earlier dates, attendees can get discount on all Ernie shows tickets.

Ernie is described by the show itself as being a free spirit with a knack for mischief. He is a shorter muppet and adorns a shirt with horizontal stripes. His head is wider than it is tall, and is shaped almost like a football. His muppet also has no eyebrows. In appearance, he is almost strikingly opposite to Bert, who wears vertical stripes, has a tall, narrow head, and a unibrow. Bert is also often the one being subjected to Ernie's many shenanigans, but it goes without saying that it is the friendship that both value above all else. If you get Ernie tickets to go see them live, chances are that you will get to see the two together for a good amount of the show. Apart from his relationship with Bert, his distinctive laugh is also what sets him apart.

In the segments where the two are together, the themes are often based around Ernie insisting to do something fun like playing a game when Bert would much rather so something quite and subdued like reading a book. Bert usually ends up joining Ernie in the game but by the time he has starts getting into it, Ernie wants to play something else.

Another one of his traits is his fondness of his Rubber Duckie. He does not like to put it down, even when he is playing the saxophone (another one of his main interests).

By getting Ernie tickets to see your favorite muppet live, you will also get to see him perform some solo segments. Sometimes, he also joins other characters like the Cookie Monster, "Lefty the Salesman", and Sherlock Hemlock in special skits. For a few years on the Sesame Street, the Big Bird and he had a segment together entitled "Journey to Ernie".

A lot of songs performed by Ernie in the show have become popular in the mainstream. An example is the song he sang for his Rubber Duckie, which was featured in the very first season. In the 1970s, this song appeared on the "Billboard Hot 100", peaking at number 16. Families can attend the "Sesame Street Live" event together and get discount on all Ernie shows tickets, where the song will be performed on stage.

Ernie has also appeared in the two Sesame Street movies. In the first one entitled "Follow That Bird", he spent the movie looking for the Big Bird in a plane with Bert. Ernie flew the plane, turning it upside down while singing the song, "Upside Down World". In the movie, they found the Big Bird, and then lost him again, resulting in a quarrel between the best friends where Ernie blames Bert for the change of events.

In the second movie, "The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland", Bert and Ernie played the role of the hosts who would walk into and interrupt a scene when things were getting serious.

Ernie was originally operated by Jim Henson, who played the character from 1969 till his death in 1990. After that, Steve Whitmire took over in 1993. If you attend "Sesame Street Live" by getting Ernie tickets, Whitmire will be operating Ernie at the show as well. The Ernie character is what the puppeteers call a "Live Hand Muppet". This is because they are not controlled by strings. The operators use one hand to control the head, and the other hand to become the arm of the muppet itself. Sometimes, another puppeteer is required to become the other arm, but most of the times; it is rather stuffed and fixed to the side.

So get Ernie tickets for your children now for a nice family day out.
