Sesame Street's Big Bird back in US politics


Sesame Street's Big Bird has teamed up with First Lady Michelle Obama on a healthy eating campaign in the US.

It is not the first time the character has been involved in politics.

During the 2012 presidential election campaign, Mitt Romney famously said "I love Big Bird", before going on to announce his plan to end funding for Sesame Street's host broadcaster, the Public Broadcasting System.
