LOS ANGELES (AP) — Nickelodeon says Mitt Romney skipped the chance to take part in a "Kids Pick the President" special that includes his opponent.

The children's' TV channel said Monday that the GOP presidential contender declined be involved in the special, while President Barack Obama participated.

The program includes videotaped questions for the candidates from children nationwide. Afterward, viewers can vote for their pick for president.

Linda Ellerbee, the show's host and producer, said candidates show "respect for kids" by answering their questions and called Romney's decision disappointing.

The Romney campaign did not immediately respond to phone and email requests for comment.

In the Nickelodeon special, Obama is asked about issues including jobs, immigration and bullying. It debuts Oct. 15.

    What did you expect? Mitt doesn’t have the nerve to face kids and lie to them about their future. Also, Mitt didn’t want to face questions about Big Bird.
