Timing is everything.
Big Bird gets a shout out in the first Presidential debate last week and becomes a bigger star than he ever was. And just in time for Halloween.
Costume shops are selling out of the Big Bird costume, and customers are crying fowl. Lucky for me, I was Big Bird last year, and as you can see from my earlier post (before the debate), my dog may find his way to Sesame Street this year.
The Big Bird brouhaha has ruffled a lot of feathers. PBS isn’t too happy: future funding for its shows could be in question, and now the Obama campaign is using Big Bird in its political ads without permission.
Nobody said being a celebrity is all fun and games, just as Oscar the Grouch.
