I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story

I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story ★★★★

As the title suggests, this charming documentary takes a look at the puppeteer who brought the iconic Sesame Street character Big Bird to life. Since this remarkable man has sadly left us since it was made (he passed away at the end of 2019), viewing it seems all the more poignant.

With plentiful archive and interview footage, I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story covers the main events in his life in a fairly comprehensive but always affectionate fashion. If you have any fond memories of the Sesame Street TV show then it is a no-brainer watch.
