Combining compelling interviews with fellow puppeteer cronies and fascinating material from Carroll’s personal archives, I Am Big Bird illuminates the dynamic portrait of an unknown man whose Sesame Street characters, Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch, have influenced generations of children. An icon of popular culture for over 40 years, beak and feathers weaving a path through American history; Caroll’s stories are the stuff of legend. And, as the yellow feathers give way to grey hair, it is the man, not the puppet, who will steal your heart. “Sweet, inspiring, uplifting and totally emotional” ***** Star Pulse “An endearing life story. Wonderfully nostalgic but also heart-wrenching at times” Movie Dearest “Sheer joy” Cinema Sentries
