I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story

1h 31m Documentary 2014

For 45 years, Caroll Spinney has been beloved by generations of children as the man behind Sesame Street’s Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch - and at 80 years old, he has no intention of stopping.

A loving portrait of the man in the yellow suit, this doco features extraordinary footage of Spinney’s earliest collaborations with Jim Henson as it traces his journey from bullied child to childhood icon.

“The transcendence that the film offers isn’t to be taken lightly considering the near impossibility of living professionally as an artist.” ~Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
