I AM BIG BIRD: THE CAROLL SPINNEY STORY

Big Bird has been an iconic and beloved figure to all since SESAME STREET first aired in 1969. But who is the man in the Big Bird suit, who also plays grumpy trashcan resident Oscar the Grouch? Featuring rare behind-the-scenes footage of life on Sesame Street, I AM BIG BIRD tells the story of Caroll Spinney, the amiable Muppeteer who has filled Big Bird's huge orange feet and brought joy to the world for over 40 years. – AP
