Bert and Ernie are gay.

Bert and Ernie are more than just friends, according to “Sesame Street” writer Mark Saltzman.

Saltzman, who joined the show in 1984, told Queerty the two puppets are a gay couple and their relationship is a reflection of his partnership with film editor Arnold Glassman.

“I was Ernie. I look more Bert-ish. And [Arnold] as a film editor — if you thought of Bert with a job in the world, wouldn’t that be perfect? Bert with his paper clips and organization? And I was the jokester,” he revealed to the LGBTQ blog. “So it was the Bert and Ernie relationship, and I was already with Arnie when I came to ‘Sesame Street.'”

The two puppets have been living together as roommates at 123 Sesame Street for the past 49 years but slept in separate beds.

The makers of "Sesame Street" say Bert and Ernie, the classic feuding Muppets who appeared on the popular children's television show, are not gay.

The statement came Tuesday after former "Sesame Street" writer Mark Saltzman gave an interview to online LGBT magazine Queerty Sunday saying the characters were gay.

"I always felt that without a huge agenda, when I was writing Bert & Ernie, they were. I didn’t have any other way to contextualize them," Saltzman said. "I don’t think I’d know how else to write them, but as a loving couple."

"Sesame Street" denies the claim, however, saying the characters are simply "best friends."

"They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves. Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics (as most 'Sesame Street' Muppets do), they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation."
