After teasing never-before-seen plush dolls of Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street earlier this month, KAWS has now provided us with a shot of the whole gang back together.

The Instagram post, which you can check out up top, shows the couple alongside pals Elmo, Big Bird, and the Cookie Monster. KAWS captioned it, "My morning welcoming crew at the studio. I just wish they knew how to make tea..."

The project's first post featured an image of Ernie, alongside the caption "I feel like it’s already Friday... I’m looking forward to the next few months..." hinting that it may see a release in either Fall or Winter.

The second Instagram post, this time depicting Bert, also shows the cuddly toy up close, with the caption reading “#goodmorning #KAWS #mood.”

Both characters’ eyes have been replaced by KAWS' signature "X" motif. Check out both posts below.

The news comes shortly after the graffiti artist joined forces with Uniqlo UT on a well-received set of T-shirts. The same summer, he also designed several plush BFF characters for Kim Jones' inaugural Dior show — one of which was seen valued on StockX with an initial asking price of $9,999,999.

Will you find a place in your home for Bert and Ernie? Let us know if you plan on copping below.

Now peep the KAWS holiday card, commissioned by the MoMA.
