Shapes & Colors (subtitled "Ernie's Favorites!") is a 1986 Sesame Street vinyl sticker book. Ernie, Bert, and their friends examine different shapes and colors in a series of dialogue-free pages.

In particular, the last few pages form a silent narrative, as Ernie paints a wall while Cookie Monster holds a plate of fruit to match the paint. The color (and fruit) changes with each page, while Grover, Betty Lou, and Count von Count arrive to help. They eventually crowd Bert right out of the book and onto the back cover, where he can finally breathe easily. Side 1 of the tape has the song "Just Three Colors."
