Dictionary letter w

Bert pulling Ernie in a wagon

W is the 23rd letter of the English alphabet. It has been depicted as a Muppet character, on occasion.

W was one of the very first sponsors of Sesame Street; it was a sponsor of the first episode and sponsored some of the test shows (starting with the second pilot). It also sponsored the first Sesame Street movie, Follow That Bird, along with B.

The letter, which begins such words as witch, wolf, Western, Wodehouse, Washington, and Whales has often been depicted in Muppet form, pummeling Kermit the Frog in an early lecture, eluding capture by Sergeant Thursday in a Dragnet spoof, and as performed by Kevin Clash, being interviewed by Larry King.

The "wuh" sound of W has so endeared itself to the public as to become the center of Bert's society, the National Association of "W" Lovers. In the "Gift of the Magi" story as heard in Merry Christmas from Sesame Street, Bert said that he had a paperclip shaped like a W.

The letter W appeared in the sketch American I (a spoof of American Idol) as a contestant to become the next American I with the help of his letter I lessons, as well as in "A Brief History of Motion Pictures".
