This album promises that a long and boring car trip will fly by when Bert and Ernie travel along with you! Een Uur Niet Zeuren - Bert & Ernie op reis (No Nagging for One Hour - Bert & Ernie Go Traveling) features Bert and Ernie singing songs and playing games to keep kids entertained during the voyage.

This album was only released on cassette.

As always, the album starts with Ernie being excited about playing games and singing songs, and Bert wanting to read. This almost leads to a fight when Ernie pretends to throw Bert's book out the window. In song, they remind each other that it's not safe to fight while you're driving. During a song about animal sounds, they almost start arguing again... Ernie sees funny road signs and starts to speak "a foreign language". He also sees a rainbow. Bert and Ernie try to count its colors before it fades away. While Ernie thinks about more things to look for, Bert falls asleep and starts to mumble. He is dreaming about the day they met Oscar and took him out on a ride.

Ernie is concerned about the kids at home getting bored, so he wakes Bert up for some more traveling songs and games, like playing hide and seek with Bert's "Zippy and Zoppy" book. When they see an AA patrol car outside, Bert and Ernie talk about what happens if a car breaks down. They finish the album with their singalong "We Will Get There, Even Though We're Not There Yet!"
