Every Muppet duo has playful undertones to their shtick. Ernie and Bert are a good example of this. How that is interpreted depends upon the viewer. I see them as a couple; others see them as merely best friends. The only problem I ever have with this topic is when a person is offended by either scenario. I hope we finally reach a time when such bigotry seems foreign and absurd to most people. Sesame Street and the Muppets are about celebrating differences. Bert and Ernie are different, but they get along enough to share an apartment. We should all take a cue from them!
