Big Bird comes back to haunt Caroll Spinney in 'Big Birdman'

Posted on

Sesame Street

Michael Keaton’s Riggan Thomson isn’t the only one haunted by his characters. 

Caroll Spinney, who has been the voice of tBig Bird for 45 years, is haunted by his alter-ego, too, in a Sesame Street spoof of the Oscar-nominated Birdman.

In “Big Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Orange Pants),” the puppeteer wonders why he keeps smelling bird seed, as he attempts to find his way back to a special street.
