YoB&E: Day 57--Bath preparations

Ernie makes bathtime contingency plans

One of the ways Sesame Street is designed to engage with its audience is to give the kids watching an opportunity to figure things out before the characters do. It's empowering for them to think that they're smarter than the people on TV, but from an adult perspective, it sometimes makes the characters seem kind of stupid. Here, for example, it seems to take Bert an inordinate amount of time to figure out why Ernie is wandering around the apartment naked except for a towel.
