Big Bird blowup

(WFLX) - The Obama campaign has been asked to take down a new ad featuring Big Bird and mocking Mitt Romney's vow to end federal funding for PBS.

According to the Obama campaign, the 30-second ad is only airing on cable outlets in time slots devoted to comedy shows.

But Sesame Workshop, the foundation that produces and owns the show, issued a statement Tuesday afternoon saying they don't endorse any candidate and didn't approve any ads with Big Birds' likeness.

Watch the political ad below.
