PERFORMER Jerry Nelson[1]
DEBUT 1982

The Ernie Statue appeared in an Ernie and Bert sketch when the two go to Egypt to explore a pyramid. Ernie sees him moving and talking but, Bert thinks it's just Ernie's imagination. Ernie finally is able to get over his fear by singing "Rubber Duckie" and the statue joins in. When they start to leave, Bert jokingly says goodbye to the statue, who replies the same back, making Bert run away in fear.
