Despite Mitt Romney's remarks during the debate last night ,Big Bird ,and all the people that live on that magical street will not be fired. The goverment has little funding in to their show. they get their money from "Children's Television Workshop", which helps produce "Sesame Street," gets a decent number of grants from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Here are the numbers for those ready to count with the Count: In 2009, it received $2.5 million in total. In 2010, a federal Ready to Learn grant, which helps put on educational TV shows, provided about $1.5 million, and the overall digital presence for "Sesame Street" and friends got $8 million to help spread educational messages and games online in 2011.  So Big bird will always be here .
