The Original Big Bird Retires from Sesame Street

Recommended Posts


The New York Post has released an article about 84-year old puppeteer and voice actor Carroll Spinney, who announced his retirement from Sesame Street after a prolific 49-year career. He is best known for playing the iconic Big Bird as well as Oscar the Grouch. He stopped the puppeteering roles of the characters in 2015 due to health issues, but continued to provide the voices for the two characters. He ends his career this week and new voice actors will be cast as Big Bird and Oscar. Spinney's final appearance as Big Bird and Oscar is set for tomorrow (10/18/18).
