Whether he’s a one-man band, sidewalk chalk artist, chimney sweep, or kite seller, Bert from Mary Poppins is a happy-go-lucky guy we can’t help but love. He’s just the person you’d want to have around when you need a laugh or advice. Since we love Bert so much, we wanted to take a moment and share all the reasons why he’s so great:
He’s quite talented.
Not only does he hold down various jobs, he’s a talented artist, impressionist, singer, and dancer. He truly is a jack-of-all-trades.
He thinks outside the box.
On their Jolly Holiday, Bert takes Mary Poppins to tea served by penguins. If that’s not imaginative, we don’t know what is.
He’s got a great sense of fashion.
Look at how dapper he is in that striped jacket and blue bowtie WITH MATCHING SOCKS. We appreciate a guy who matches his bowtie to his socks.
He puts others first.
Remember when he saved that adorable fox from the hunt? Bert really is a stand up guy.
He’s always dancing through life.
Bert never needs a reason, and never needs a rhyme, to step in time.
He’s just a ray of sunshine.
Look at that face. That is the face of happiness.
He’s great at cheering people up.
When Jane and Michael run away after they visit the bank, Bert was there to lift their spirits.
He’s a true gentleman.
Even Mary Poppins calls him a diamond in the rough, and we wholeheartedly agree.
