Bert is a yellow muppet on Sesame Street. Some describe him as kind and intelligent but also grumpy, boring and easily frustrated.
Bert’s catchphrase is “Yes, I do mind!” He enjoys activities such as paper clip and bottle cap collecting, cooking oatmeal and watching pigeons. Sesame Street producer Arlene Sherman has called Bert “everyone’s idea of a blind date”.
Bert is a serious devotee of the ephemeral, as well as his two collections, Bert serves as President of the National Association of W Lovers, a club dedicated to the letter W. Two conventions held by the W Lovers have been shown on Sesame Street.
