“At last! Now you see him and you got to believe me. He’s not imaginary after all. I told you all along there was a Snuffleupagus, my best pal. I told you, but you never believed me.” – Big Bird (Caroll Spinney), upon proving Snuffy’s existence to the adults, SESAME STREET
Honestly, if there’s a preschooler who gets the references in this SESAME STREET parody then their parents need to be visited by social services. That being said, you have to laugh at the moxie of the Sesame Workshop to turn one of the most violent pop culture touchstones of this century into a Grover-filled game of musical chairs. Or just laugh at the jokes. Either way, check out GAME OF CHAIRS!

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!
