Big Bird Through The Years
If you grew up watching Sesame Street, how Big Bird is "supposed" to look to you depends greatly on when you did the watching. He started out looking pretty scruffy looking, as seen one of his more famous songs
. This song features a Big Bird closest to the one I know
puppeteer behind Big Bird is Caroll Spinney
who received a Lifetime Achievement Award during the 2006 Daytime Emmy Awards

Paedomorphic flightlessness and taxonomic affinities of an enormous Recent bird
is a talk on the anatomy and evolutionary history of a certain flightless bird indigenous to New York City.
As you may have noticed
from Google this morning, today is the 40th Anniversary of Sesame Street
! New seasons
are in production including the newest muppet, Abby Cadaby, but today is a day for our old friends. Videos a plenty
to fuel your nostalgia.
It's the most remarkable word I've ever seen! Big Bird tries to pronounce the alphabet

BIG BIRD UNPLUCKED
Murdoch's yellow journalism finally finds a subject that's equally yellow, as they pull the juiciest 'nuggets' from the
about-to-be-published book by 'the person beneath the feathers'
* The battle to save Big Bird from being "the village idiot"!!!
* His declaration of allegiance with Red China!!!
* How Jim Henson made Big Bird dance AND made him cry!!!
* The accident that almost 'cooked his goose'!!!
* The rapper who broke Big Bird's neck!!!
Of course, those tabloid turkeys missed the REAL inside story of Big Bird: from his recent awards
to his Secret Connection to Bob Dole!!!
Big Bird is bringing peace to Northern Ireland
This brilliant (and timely) story is doing the net 'rounds. The scary thing is? This story is true
. And to think: it was only next month Sesame Street was dealing with AIDS. Maybe Kermit will have sorted out Iraq by Christmas...
Big bird, fired.
Seems the economy has truly fallen on hard times when they start letting the puppet people go. Sesame Street lays off 70; can complete financial collapse be far behind?
This is not only so fake
it's not even funny, but the picture is highly disturbing. HOW AM I GOING TO WATCH SESAME STREET WITHOUT BIG BIRD?!?!?!?
