This week's Poll Vault is brought to you by the letters G, O and P and the number 47.

On Wednesday night, during his first debate with President Barack Obama, Republican candidate Mitt Romney said he'd cut federal funding for PBS, home of "Sesame Street."

"Sesame Street" has been on the air for more than 40 years and has won scores of awards for its educational programming. Like many in my generation, I learned to read at a young age by watching Big Bird (the one Romney loves), Oscar the Grouch, the Count (Ah-ah-ah-ah!), Grover, Cookie Monster and Bert and Ernie.

Do you remember the veteran characters such as Guy Smiley, Mr. Snuffleupagus, Telly Monster and the Yip Yips? The kids today know Elmo, Zoe, Rosita and Abby Cadabby.

Did you have any of the books, play sets or stuffed toys? Who is your favorite character?
