    Sesame Street Magazine #108 Bert and Ernie Original Front and Back Cover Art (The Parenting Group, 1981). Bert and Ernie were the only Muppets used for the July 1969 Sesame Street pilot. They were performed for many years by Jim Henson and Frank Oz. This is an outstanding Holiday painting used for both the front and back cover of Sesame Street Magazine for the December '81 issue. The theme was "Colors." This is published artwork created by longtime Sesame Street Magazine artist Rick Brown. He has signed the bottom right. Bert and Ernie are in a sea of Christmas Tree ornaments of every color imaginable, painted in gouache on board measuring 19" x 15"; painted area is 16" x 11". The characters are 4" and 6". The amazing array of color is staggering. The mechanical acetate for the title is overlaid on the artwork. Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
