Jake's Journal: Sesame Street's Bert and Ernie join the fun in Garmin Garage

ProductImageThis week has taken me back to my younger days...specifically the days where a 7-foot-tall bird taught me my manners and monsters taught me to spell (and how to appreciate cookies). I learned how to be polite - and not to be a grouch. And that it's cool for two roommates to spontaneously burst into song about nearly anything - and now those two roomies can join me on my next road trip or daily drive! Yep, on the same day that I was able to tour KCPT, our local public television station (where we took pics with their biggest/loudest stars and launched a new project), my old buddies Bert and Ernie ventured from Sesame Street to the Garmin Garage.

IMG_0553 IMG_0539Being the sharing type, they were more than happy to spend some time in the recording booth so that countless commuters can get their directions from two of the most popular voices of any generation. Better yet, they've had so much fun since arriving at the Garage, they've invited Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch to join them in the near future. Before they crash the party, we had to teach those two how to behave in the car - particularly how to be neat and nice, respectively.

So I know you want to ask: "Can you tell me how to to get those Sesame Street voices?" Just go to and click on their smiling faces. From there, simple instructions will walk you through the process, and be sure to check out the many other voices and vehicles (some famous, some just fun) that can make your holiday travel more entertaining. Perfect timing as these charismatic characters always reminded us to say thanks.
