Famous Sesame Street roommates and long-time bros Ernie and Bert are the latest voices available to TomTom GPS device users. They along with other celebrity voices such as Mr.T, Homer Simpson and even Darth Vader should make getting to your destination a lot more interesting and fun.
The ageless characters of Ernie and Bert (I guess felt doesn’t wrinkle much) were one of the first muppets to make an appearance on Sesame Street, debuting together on the original pilot in 1969. The two muppets were originally voiced by Jim Henson himself, as the fun-loving Ernie and longtime partner Frank Oz as the more serious Bert. The characters are currently performed by Muppeteers Eric Jacobson and Steve Whitmire.
You can listen to a preview of Ernie and Bert’s driving directions at the TomTom website. As for other Sesame Street characters, wouldn’t it be fun to hear the voices of Grover, Oscar or maybe the Cookie Monster who could help you locate the best cookie shops along your route.
