Ernie & Bert Märchensongs ("Ernie & Bert Fairy Tale Songs") is a Sesamstrasse mini-series, airing as "Sesamstraße präsentiert" ("Sesame Street presents").
Nine segments, at 4:30 length each, aired on children's TV network KIKA beginning on December 13, 2011. The segments star Ernie and Bert in classic fairy tales, often in drag, with some help from Sesamstrasse friends and stock animal characters (including Finchen and Wolf). Each segment features a new original song.
The segments started to air as part of the regular Sesamstrasse episodes in February 2012. A new set of fairy tales is currently in production for a fall 2013 release.
