Um, isn't the Elephant showering under the waterfall known as Bertha? If so, then why does she have a masculine voice in the commercial?

Guess what? Not everyone who does something for Disney knows everything about Disney. Same goes for just about everything else. I mean, why does Elmo from Sesame Street have two different sets of parents? Was there a divorce?

Of course he has parents. And while I saw a painting of his parents that look nothing like the real set he has, I've never seen them in actual puppet form.

I'd say that wasn't a case of someone not knowing about the previous set, but more along the lines of they decided to change what they look like at some point.

Maybe he was adopted at infancy, then when he was a toddler and became famous, his birth parents wanted to come back into his life because they're money hungry, so sesame street had no choice but to include them in.

>...isn't the Elephant showering under the waterfall known as Bertha?<

I wonder if this is something official or if it's just what the JC skippers have come to call the character. I always thought the elephant was male, but I don't think anyone ever said it was one way or the other.

I thought his name was "Little Squirt"? Maybe that's a WDW name.

The elephant's name was "Little Red", as in, "Little Red's O.K.!". Sorry, wrong park. Could the "Bertha" situation be an elaphantine version of "The Crying Game"? That was a Miramax film, wasn't it?
