Sesame Street: Ernie and Bert meet the Martians

Here’s a powerful flashback for those of us who are too old to go back to school: “Was Bert captured by Martians?” an episode from the Ernie and Bert muppet series on the pioneering educational television show Sesame Street. Originally aired in December 1985, here’s a description of the episode, taken from the Muppet Wiki:

Ernie wakes up and tells Bert it's time to get up, but notices that Bert isn't in his bed. He slowly ponders what happened to his best friend, coming to the conclusion that maybe some Martians took him away in their spaceship. As it turns out, Bert just got up early to fix some oatmeal. Ernie is relieved ... until a real spaceship lands and the Martians enter the room.

Watch “Was Bert captured by Martians?” on YouTube (2:40 minutes).

Sunny day, Sweepin' the clouds away, On my way to where the air is sweet, Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street. ...
