from Sesame Street skit
s aired around 1977-81. They were construction
workers, and Sully was mute.
Biff would share
his lunch with Sully, or vice-versa
(as this memory
and I can't remember), but they were friends
to us wide-eyed viewers of PBS
They were dropped, perhaps because of the fact
that there was already one deaf
person on the show, Linda or because Bert and Ernie
carried stronger traits of dominance and submission
and were even rumour
ed to be gay
, and were much more popular
. They could have been exhausted for ideas with them as well.
