Big Bird is a character on the children’s television show Sesame Street. He is an 8-foot-2-inch (249 cm) tall, bright yellow canary who lives on Sesame Street, a fictional street located in an inner city neighborhood. Big Bird is depicted as childlike and naive, but also intelligent and curious. He is best known for his voracious appetite for knowledge and his love for his friends on Sesame Street, including his teddy bear Radar. Big Bird was originally performed by puppeteer Caroll Spinney, who retired in 2018 after nearly 50 years on the show. He has been a beloved part of Sesame Street since the show premiered in 1969 and has become one of the most iconic characters in children’s television. There is always the option of making things easy on yourself by using a readymade complete costume set. The New Yorker. "Conversation: Caroll Spinney, the Man Inside Big Bird," by Blake Eskin. November 6, 2009. When Big Bird moved, feathers occasionally drifted off his coat. Love imagined him to be, in his words, “not unlike a tree shedding leaves in the fall.”What Sesame Street has taught generation after generation of parents is the importance of imagination to learning. Yes, you can teach your children to be kind through your own actions, but they might very well learn it better from an 8-foot-tall, bright-yellow bird whose hairstyle reminds them of their Nana’s perm. The exhibition features one of the original Big Bird puppets, made in 1975. It is a magnificent object designed by Love, constructed from miscellaneous materials: turkey, ostrich, and coq feathers; cotton, nylon, wool, and silk; reticulated foam, latex, ultra suede, and neoprene; and wood, steel, fishing line, and rattan boning. According to Love’s longtime partner and collaborator, Christopher Lyall, the designer was very particular about how the Bird appeared. His feathers were dyed yellow and then sewn on upside down to give him a slightly ruffled appearance. New Big Birds were created whenever an old costume became worn or damaged by outdoor exposure; for example, Big Bird’s feet were frequently stained by grass at his yearly appearances at the White House Easter Egg Roll in the 1970s and ’80s. A new costume, according to Lyall, took almost three weeks to finish. When he's not busy crafting imaginative costumes, Doc Cotton loves nothing more than a good party. He's the one who knows how to turn any gathering into a memorable event, infusing it with fun and excitement. Barbara Miller, the curator of the Jim Henson exhibition at MOMI, thinks this is because Big Bird embodies a child’s perspective in a room. “There’s this strange combination between the giant-ness of the bird and the sweetness of his character that somehow captures how a child feels,” she says. Henson's finished color sketch of his initial "goofy" vision for Big Bird. Here, the bird looks noticeably slimmer than how the actual puppet came to be.
