On August 11, 2015 comes I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story on DVD from Cinedigm and Tribeca Film with as SRP ($19.97). This movie was directed by Dave LaMattina and Chad N. Walker. This is a documentary about Caroll Spinney who for 45 years has been beloved by generations of children as the man behind Sesame Street’s Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch and at 80 years old, he has no intention of stopping. A loving portrait of the man in the yellow suit,
I AM BIG BIRD features extraordinary footage of Spinney’s earliest collaborations with Jim Henson as it traces his journey from bullied child to childhood icon. And as the yellow feathers give way to gray hair, it is the man, not the puppet, who will steal your heart. This also includes bonus features, Deleted Scenes: Caroll on Camera, Caroll Meets Michael Jackson, Oscar the Grouch, Big Bird’s Biggest Fan, First Date, Deb’s Song, and Chinese Big Bird.
My Opinion: I am a Sesame Street Fan as I watched it when I was a child so this movie was very interesting following the life and career of Caroll Spinney and I found out some very interesting facts about him.
