Presidential candidate Mitt Romney ruffled feathers during this week’s debate when he said he will cut funding to PBS if elected, leaving many Sesame Street fans across the country wondering what would happen to the beloved characters they grew up with – especially Big Bird, whom Romney mentioned by name.
Regardless of whether it’s Romney or President Obama residing in the White House next year, we think this controversy has raised our feathery friend’s star power exponentially. In fact, we would be shocked if a few networks haven’t already reached out to Big Bird’s representatives to have him appear on their shows.
If Mitt Romney fires Big Bird, the lovable Sesame Street character will probably land on his feet, as illustrated here by my colleague Karen Ruud:
America’s Got Talent (NBC):
Boardwalk Empire (HBO):
Breaking Bad (AMC):
Modern Family (ABC):
The Walking Dead (AMC):
Swamp People (History):
