Farewell to Bird Bird's creator


Over the weekend, we lost Carroll Spinney, the Muppeteer and voice behind the iconic Sesame Street characters Big Bird and Oscar The Grouch. At age 85, Spinney passed away on Sunday at his home in Woodstock, Connecticut after a long illness. After stepping down, the show did a beautiful tribute to his work on the show, which you can check out below. My wife just happened to mentioned to me the other day about a documentary about Carroll working on these characters on the show called "I Am Big Bird", check out the trailer for that below, my wife raves about it.
