Above are figures of Bert and Ernie which have been popping up every so often on ebay and other websites since the early 2000's. I've never seen any information for them... who made them, when they were made, and what playset or vehicle they were sold with. It's clear by their jointed legs that they're meant to sit inside the compartment of a vehicle, and based on the outfits they're wearing with the wings on their hats, I would guess that the vehicle is an airplane. Or maybe it could be a racing car outfit?
If anyone has some information about these, I'd really appreciate if you would share it with me. A photo of the toy in the box would be amazing, though I'd just be glad to see what the vehicle looks like and what company made it. Please post the info on the discussion page of this blog, or contact me by e-mail. Hopefully this bizarre mystery can be solved!!! Many thanks!
