Here's a fun little video we stumbled upon purely by accident and promptly felt that it must be shared. Inspired by Lillian Hellman's play (and later movie version of) The Children's Hour (1961 / trailer) and, of course, Sesame Street, Ernest and Bertram pretty much fell off the map after its original release because of a cease & desist order for copyright infringement from SS.
Director Peter Spears co-wrote the tragic short with T.C. Smith; Spears has since gone on to direct the "quirky" comedy Careless (2007 / trailer). Enjoy.
