Most of the songs featured in the video are original songs composed specifically for the Million Puppet March.
The Million Puppet March occurred 11/3/12 in Washington DC as a show of support for public broadcasting. Marchers and puppets assembled in Lincoln Park at 10amET, and started marching by 11am ET. We arrived at the Capitol Reflecting Pool at around 1pm for a Rally, puppet shows, speeches, original and classic Muppet and Sesame Street music, an open mic for kids and a whole lot of fun and support.
Thanks go out to Beale Street Puppets, Bread and Puppet, Craig Aaron of Free Press, Stufft, Caroll Spinney and the "I Am Big Bird" filmmakers, the Broadway cast of Avenue Q, the Tony Award winner for Best Musical, Medill and all the adults, kids and puppets who attended what turned out to be a truly magical day.
In addition to the more than 1,500 marchers on the ground we had over 11,500 live streams of the event and millions of media impressions all over the world and in social media. We were far more than the Million Puppet March... it was more like the Gajillion Puppet March! Plus we now hold a RecordSetters World Record for Largest Puppet March http://rec.st/mTGu
