Sesame Street and Other PBS Programs at Risk…Actors Stomp the Hill

Could you imagine getting your kids up one morning, setting their breakfast in front of them and turning on the TV only to find the worst television catastrophe since 1969–the Public Broadcasting System or PBS had been dismantled.  There would be no more Sesame Street, Word World, Electric Company (old or new), and Clifford the Big Red Dog would have taken his  last stroll.

The actors on the show: Emilio Delgado (Luis), Roscoe Orman (Gordon), Bob McGrath (Bob), Alan Muraoka (Alan) and Alison Bartlett O’Reilly (Gina) stomped the Capitol steps along with unions and activist groups to protest against the funding cuts for public programming.  The House has already voted to cut $400 million in spending which includes Sesame Street.

We can all do something about the threat of losing our favorite childhood shows. Contact your state’s representatives and senators here. Read the rest of the report here while you’re looking for their numbers.
