SESAME STREET released a video celebrating Caroll Spinney after the Big Bird portrayer announced his retirement from the long-running children’s television show. Grab a few hankies and honor this master of puppets…
The news from Sesame Workshop today is that Caroll Spinney is retiring from nearly 50 years with the beloved children’s show SESAME STREET. Spinney has been with SESAME STREET since 1969 and he’s been the voice and lead puppeteer of both Oscar the Grouch and Big Bird since the series’ premiere.
According to a press release from Sesame Workshop, the 84-year-old puppeteer said, “Big Bird brought me so many places, opened my mind and nurtured my soul. And I plan to be an ambassador for Sesame Workshop for many years to come.”
Certainly, retirement after a long and successful career is to be expected but Spinney leaves some very big
feet shoes to be filled. Here’s wishing him the best!
