I AM BIG BIRD: THE CAROLL SPINNEY STORY

  • Release Year: 2015
  • Runtime: 87 minutes minutes

A loving portrait of the man in the yellow suit, I Am Big Bird features extraordinary footage of Spinney's earliest collaborations with Jim Henson as it traces his journey from bullied child to childhood icon.
