Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch puppeteer Caroll Spinney announces retirement

I’ve still never forgiven him for mispronouncing Mr. Hooper as “Mr. Looper.” The man deserved better, Big Bird! I say good day, sir.


It seems even more fitting now.


I’ll take the job. There’s an opening now, right?


Plot twist: they kill off the character via opioid overdose


Caroll is a very sweet guy - his true persona lies smack dab in between Oscar and Big Bird.



Hmmm, so is it plausible to say we’ve never ever seen Big Bird and Oscar in the same scene?
