    RIP Caroll Spinney aka Big Bird & Oscar the Grouch

    Mr. Spinney died today at 85 years old. He retired just over a year ago after being the original performer of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch since the inception of Sesame Street in 1969.

    There's a great documentary about him called "I Am Big Bird" that came out in 2014.

    Both of his main characters were a huge part of my childhood.

    That's sad. Was a big fan of both characters as a kid.
