Muppet Wiki


Bernice as seen in The Sesame Street Pet Show.

Bernice is Bert's pet pigeon on Sesame Street. Bert has taught her to play checkers (though she only beat him twice out of ten games).

In contrast to the various Muppet birds on Sesame Street, Bernice is played by a real pigeon. How many different pigeons have played the role over the course of the series is unknown. She also figures as an animated character in Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures.
