Question: 
When did Ernie get his rubber duck's soap dish?
Answer: 

Ernie got his soap dish on Christmas Eve, in the 1978 film "Christmas Eve
on Sesame Street".  The pink dish was a present to Ernie from his best
friend, Bert.  And by a strange quirk of O'Henry-style fate, Ernie also
got his rubber duckie (returned) for Christmas that same year, as a gift from
Mr. Hooper.
