|My custom made Big Bird puppet|
As most of you heard, Carol Spinney has announced his retirement. For those of you who don't know who he is, he is the man inside Big Bird and the man behind Oscar the Grouch. He has been puppeteering for 50 years straight and if you ask me he has earned this retirement. He is probably my hero (next to Jim Henson) because he has inspired me to become a puppeteer.

I know he looks weird but this was when I first started making replicas
through Big Bird I learned the alphabet and that it's okay to make mistakes and ask questions and through Oscar I learned that there is a dark side in everybody and there is nothing wrong with that. There where days were I acted like Big Bird and days where I acted like Oscar I have enjoyed all 50 years of Carol's work and he has inspired me a lot. thanks "fur" everything Mr Spinney 😁😁😁.
