"Ernie" from Sesame Street in Hebrew:

There is something a bit surreal about watching Ernie (Arik in Hebrew) singing "Rubber Ducky" and "If I knew your were coming I'd have baked a cake," two of my all-tme favorite Sesame Street numbers, in Hebrew.

It must be a Zionest lie; how could Bert (noted compatriot of Osama bin Ladin) have lived with such an infidel?

Great links; thanks!

I was actually signing Rubby Ducky in Hebrew last night. Seriously. (But I butchered it.) Thanks for the link!

Check out the "Bert is Evil" website. Lots of photos implicating Bert in 9-11, the Kennedy Assasination, etc.

Good evening. Working hard, in this busy time for you called. This is my friend and the Boke,just established, the time is not long. The issue here isthat everybody can see my Boke, Ha-ha, raising some visibility, which caused trouble to ask your forgiveness! We all hope to see.

Not nearly as surreal as watching Ernie/Arik don fighter-pilot gear and bomb Lebanese civilians. "Sesame Street" just doesn't cross the oceans very well, I guess.

Though Sesame Street has used "If I knew you were coming, I'd have baked a cake," it was not composed for them.

It was composed in the '40s by Bob Merrill, who also wrote "How much is that doggie in the window" and the lyrics for the songs in Funny Girl (e.g., "Don't rain on my parade" and "People (who need people)").

It was a big hit in March, 1950 for Eileen Baton and later that year for Georgia Gibbs. Ethel Merman did it in a duet with Ray Bolger, as did Bing Crosby and Bob Hope.
