Either way, I'm sure Sesame Street's future is safe, because there are undoubtedly several networks willing to buy up the series if PBS goes away.
The people at Sesame Street asked the Obama campaign to stop using Big Bird in their ads. I think it's sad that the President of the United States chooses to talk about Big Bird when we've got such serious issues facing us right now here and abroad. Since their ads accusing Romney of murder, being a felon, and failiing to hug his garbage man have all failed, they're using Big Bird now. Sad, sad, sad.

I told y'all we should move Big Bird to the Politics section!

I would say that they should consider turning that into a TV series, but I remember the disaster when Geico tried that with its caveman characters.
I never liked the cavemen, they whined too much! I like the ones with the gecko.

And I love the ETrade babies!

The E-trade baby commercials are pretty good. I am wondering how old the baby from the very first commercial is by now and what's the "swap out" rate for these kids? Can you imagine growing up and your biggest claim to fame is "I was an E-trade baby?"

Give it about 20 years and they'll all have their own reality show.
