Caroll Spinney has been Sesame Street's Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch since 1969. For over four decades, Caroll's characters have been cherished by generations of children, and, at the age of 81, the tenacious and enthusiastic performer has no intention of slowing down. The film features footage of Spinney's earliest collaborations with Jim Henson as it traces his journey from bullied child to celebrated performer.
