Million Puppet March Planned to Defend PBS Funding
More from DC
WASHINGTON - More than 1,000 puppeteers and public broadcasting supporters have signed on for a march on the National Mall in Washington three days before the election.
The so-called Million Puppet March being planned online is scheduled for Nov. 3. By Wednesday morning, more than 1,000 participants had responded on Facebook, saying they would attend.
It comes after Mitt Romney's remarks during a presidential debate calling for the elimination of PBS funding for characters like Big Bird on "Sesame Street."
Organizers originally called the event a Million Muppet March. But they note that they've changed the name to include sock puppets, hand puppets, marionettes, shadow puppets and mascots.
