I Am Big Bird

Right around the time of the Academy Awards, we got a "Sesame Street" parody of Birdman with Caroll Spinney, the man who brings Big Bird to life on the iconic children's television show. Now we have the traile for a documentary called I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story on the way looking at the man who few people know, despite his work as one of the most iconic Muppets of all-time. You may not know, but Spinney is also the voice of Oscar the Grouch, and this doc, which has been on the festival circuit for awhile, chronicles Spinney's life and career starting from life as a child to work with Jim Henson.

Here's the first trailer for Dave LaMattina and Chad Walker's I Am Big Bird from Tribeca:

I Am Big Bird

For 45 years, Caroll Spinney has been beloved by generations of children as the man behind Sesame Street's Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch - and at 80 years old, he has no intention of stopping. A loving portrait of the man in the yellow suit, I Am Big Bird: The Carol Spinney Story from directors Dave LaMattina & Chad Walker features footage of Spinney's earliest collaborations with Jim Henson as it traces his journey from bullied child to childhood icon. And as the yellow feathers give way to gray hair, it's the man, not the puppet, who will steal your heart. The films hits iTunes & VOD on May 5th and limited theaters May 6th.

I'm not one for docs per se....but this one looks great, since it is something both I and my kids have grown up with.
