To the left wing nut jobs, its not a silly question. Big Bird is obviously an adult avian that hasn't left the nest and is still being spoon fed by his parents.

Does ANYONE believe that Sesame Street is NOT a big money-maker?

Pretty much everything PBS offers - except its self-serving fund-raising drives - is closely equivalent to the standard fare of some for-profit channel, so does not need tax funding. Its big hits are, well, big hits, so certainly ought to not only be self-supporting but also be big money-makers assuming they have competent management; they don't need tax funding either.
