Imagine spending the majority of your life wearing a creature costume and contorting
in a slightly uncomfortable position as you entertain kids.
That's exactly what Carroll Spinney has done and it's all for the love of
kids and people.
In I Am Big bird; The Carroll Spinney Story viewers are witness to over 50
years of dedication of the man who is Big Bird.
Culling from archival films and TV shows this very special DVD follows the
long and illustrious career of Spinney from his early days of being bullied
child to his current impressive age of 81.
It's a remarkable documentary that follows Spinney from his early days with
Jim Henson to his present day stint on Sesame Street where he performs not only
Big Bird but Oscar The Grouch as well: two much beloved characters.
For 46 years he's donned the Big Bird costume and delighted several
generations of kids.
The American Dream has morphed into the quest for fame and fortune
especially among young black celebrities.

have obtained notoriety and wealth only to lose it to over indulgence in When The
Checks Stop Coming In.
What is it like to have everything one moment and the next only poverty and obscurity?
It makes for a chilling DVD that should serve as a warning to anyone who pursues
fame and fortune and disregards the consequences and pitfalls.
