Official description

I Am The Big Bird is a documentary film about Carrol Spinney, who has been one of the important personalities of Sesame Street since 1969 and brought life to Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch.
Although the role of Big Bird was first offered to Frank Oz, he did not accept it. Later, this role was given to Caroll Spinney. Over the years, the puppet actor did not happen. Even once, the fire that broke out in Grouch's trash was dying.

For over 40 years, Caroll Spinney, an integral part of Sesame Street, has successfully played Muppet heroes, the boy's lover, for generations. Although he remained in the background, the main reason for this love was his success.
