Ernie and Bert Are Dead: A truly unusual crossover

Scene 1

The curtain rises. COOKIE MONSTER is seated on a large chair in an elegantly appointed sitting room.

COOKIE: Oh, hello, this Alistair Cookie for Monsterpiece Theatre. Today we have cheerful story about murder, revenge and grouch named Hamlet. It named "Ernie and Bert are Dead".

The curtain falls.

Scene 2

The curtain rises on a blank, gray space separated from the audience by a waist-high gray barrier. ERNIE and BERT are standing behind the barrier. Both are wearing Elizabethan-style hats. BERT is removing coins from a bag and spinning them in the air. The coins fall on the barrier; ERNIE peers at each one, announces “heads,” and puts the coin in his own bag.

ERNIE: Heads. (He collects the coin from the barrier and adds it to his bag. Pause, as Bert tosses again.) Heads.

BERT: The laws of probability would suggest that if five Muppets… five Muppets tossed five coins… wait, we’re not on Square One. (He tosses another coin.)
