Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures is an animated series developed by Sesame Workshop in which clay-animated versions of Bert and Ernie use their imaginations to travel to strange places and into entertaining situations. The shorts are shown in the United States as inserts on Sesame Street (first appearing in season 39 and ending in season 43). Internationally, the shorts are shown as a stand-alone series in various overseas markets; the first season debuted in September 2008. The animation for the series was produced by Italy's Misseri Studio. Two seasons of 26 five-minute episodes each were produced.
