Sesame Street Puppeteer Caroll Spinney to Retire

Caroll Spinney, an Emmy-winning puppeteer on Sesame Street since the show debuted in 1969, is stepping down from the roles of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch.

Moving forward, Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch will be performed by Matt Vogel and Eric Jacobson, respectively. "Big Bird brought me so many places, opened my mind and nurtured my soul," said Spinney. "And I plan to be an ambassador for Sesame Workshop for many years to come. After all, we're a family! But now it's time for two performers that I have worked with and respected—and actually hand-picked for the guardianship of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch—to take my alter-egos into their hands and continue to give them life."
