A “sassy” version of the iconic Sesame Street character Big Bird is flying off shelves since the first presidential debate, reports say.

Costume provider CostumeCraze.com says sales of the “Sassy Big Bird” costume surged five times pre-debate sales.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney stated he would cut funding to PBS during the debate, apologizing to Big Bird, a main character on the children’s program Sesame Street, in the process.

The company also sells “sassy” Elmo and Cookie Monster costumes.
