SJMerc interview with Carol Spinney the man behind the bird – he plays Big Bird and Oscar on Sesame Street.
But if you look at the first year now, it was so crude. It must have shown how bad the rest of TV was at the time. Big Bird looked like a rag bag. The first couple of months on the air, his right arm didn’t work, but we fixed that.
He will be honored at a reception in San Jose this week.
