'Sesame Street' star Big Bird has gone from children's television star to internet sensation over night, thanks to recent statements by Mitt Romney during the 2012 presidential debate. The guy even got to go on 'SNL' this past weekend for Seth Meyer's latest edition of Weekend Update. In short, everyone was reminded that we can't get enough of Big Bird, which is why now is the perfect time to gawk over this early concept art of him and his fellow 'Sesame Street' castmates.

There was no way SNL wasn't going to make some kind of Big Bird joke this week. No way. When Mitt Romney threatened to cut funding to PBS during the first presidential debate and name dropped Sesame Street's eight foot tall walking avian, the internet immediately exhausted every possible Big Bird joke imaginable. With all of the obvious jokes taken, SNL had to go one step further and get the bird himself to come on the show.

We remember the very first time we saw 'Boardwalk Empire,' and thought to ourselves "golly, this is pretty swell, but gosh darn it if all this sex, crime and murder wouldn't be a bit better with chicken puppets."  Thankfully, we no longer need fear copyright infringement or crippling lack of funding, now that 'Sesame Street' has made its own parody of the HBO gangster drama!  Nope, you're not dreaming!
