Caroll Spinney has performed Sesame Street’s Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch for over forty years. He’s handpicked a successor who has waited, quite literally, in the wings, as his understudy for almost twenty years. But while Caroll’s peers have long since slipped into cozy retirements or pursued other dreams, he has held on with no intention of retiring. This loving documentary follows him transforming into character on set today, intercut with never-before-seen home movies from Caroll’s personal video library to glimpse how he became the man that became the Bird.
