And this fortune was created by ripping off children!!
Why did Mitt forget about NPR?
Oh, you badddddd!!!!
Ain’t that the truth. Licensing, licensing! There is some serious money to be had there by golly.
(As a kid, I hated both Sesame Street and Electric Company. Always felt as if they thought I was stupid of something…didn’t like the songs or the characters.
Now, The Banana Splits, The Bugaloos,Land of the Lost, Looney Tunes…I’d watch for hours.)
Why do we subsidize “Children’s Television Workshop” with taxpayer funds? I’ve wondered that for 35 years. Besides, PBS programming is lame and provides nothing that can’t be found on for-profit channels.
Most kids don’t watch that PBS drek anyway. This is just another way that the Dem-Cong use other people’s money to finance their pet projects.
But again, I state the obvious.
I want to see Big Birds W2′s.
Ain’t that the truth!
BTW, What happened to all the money OWS had? Who got to keep it?
Didn’t Jim Hensen’s Muppets really take off and thrive AFTER he left PBS and went to private broadcasting (The Muppet Show)?
Y’all do know that the Koch Bros fund NOVA right?
I’ve been thinking of starting my own publicly funded cartoon and calling it Washington Street, with the main character being Big Green Bird.
That should automatically qualify me for a cool 20-30 mill of taxpayer Green intitiative money.
This reminds me.
I should go to the state fair and get a turkey leg.
Yep. Looney Tunes sold me on reality. PBS was about as nourishing and intelligent as a PBJ sandwich. Eff U, Big Bird. Bugs Bunny taught me how to laugh like an American.
eternal cracker p
Doesn’t Big Bird shit where he eats?
I love big bird….right next to the potatoes and gravy.
Looney tunes was the shit, hasn’t been anything like it since. I loved Foghorn Leghorn and the little Chickenhawk.
Blanc and Freiling were masterminds.

I heard that the licensing is not like a typical business model.
You would think that all the Tickle-Me-Elmo sales would cover the cost of PBS. Wrong.
Most of the money goes to the UK and Canada.
Boobie the Rocket Dog
Well, if they sold mounted Big Bird heads, they’d make a mint.
That’s too friggin funny! You’ve GOT to make one with the occupy idiots & the bird! The pic had me laughing & picturing him with Occupy has me laughing still! I am loving this Big Bird bashing. Thanks for that Mitt!
Nice BFH. I just shared on facebook.
For those of you interested, Big Bird, resides in rural Woodstock, Ct.
Public broadcasting is getting $445,000,000. from the fascist federal government per year. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting loves its Corporate welfare. ‘Time to eliminate welfare for the biggest and wealthiest broadcasters in the country! There’s no moral or ethical justification for it and they DON’T NEED it.
But there’s $100 billion in corporate subsidies out there that need to be eliminated or drastically cut. This Forbes article does a pretty good breakdown of the categories where these billions go, but not specifics. http://tinyurl.com/8l5onkx

NPR is part of PBS. He didn’t forget.
