RIP Caroll Spinney

Recommended Posts

Caroll Spinney, better know as the puppeteer inside Big Bird for the majority of the run of Sesame Street has passed away. He was 85.  A large chunk of my childhood was spent watching him and the rest of the cast showing what the ideal interactions of a neighbor should be. He will be greatly missed and remembered very fondly by generations.

I knew he recently retired and passed the torch down to a new actors for Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch. But to see him pass away so soon is sad.

 

Losing any childhood icon is sad.

True dat. We always seem to start losing them wholesale, this last month of the year. And Carroll Spinney, we ALL grew up with.
