The Life of Caroll Spinney #1527

Season 15 Episode 20 | 26m 45s

Sesame Street’s iconic Big Bird has been educating children for more than four decades. He is the giant yellow bird who teaches us the value of failing and finding a way to succeed. That could also be said of the man, the puppeteer, inside Big Bird. We meet Caroll Spinney and discuss his life’s work revealed in the documentary, “I Am Big Bird” on “Newsmakers.”
