Big Bird Makes SNL Appearance After Romney Debate Name-Drop

YouTube

Big Bird made an appearance on a late night show that featured the letters “S,” “N,” and “L”: the famous feathered Muppet appeared on Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update segment days after Gov. Mitt Romney mentioned him during the first presidential debate of 2012.

Sesame Street‘s policy is that Muppets can’t answer questions that would be above their ages. Despite being a TV veteran for 40 years, Big Bird is actually six, so any biting political satire was off the table. But having the character appear got the message across: it was pretty odd for Romney to specifically name-drop the bird during the political showdown.

Bird mentioned he, “didn’t want to ruffle any feathers,” but acknowledged he’s received a lot of extra attention. “It’s weird to think that just a few days ago I could just blend in like every other perfectly normal eight-foot-tall talking bird.”
