A nostalgic and heartwarming collection of Sesame Street memorabilia which includes a Big Bird drawing, personalized letter, script, and original artwork from Carroll Spinney. All items are autographed by the puppeteer and cartoonist. The letter is dated July 2, 2014, just a few years before Spinney passed away in 2019. He is most famous for playing Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street from its inception in 1969 until 2018. Jim Henson was in attendance at one of his Spinney’s performances in 1969 and told him, "I liked what you were trying to do," Henson said, and asked if they could "talk about the Muppets.". They had a conversation, and Spinney joined the Muppeteers full-time by late 1969. He performed Big Bird and Oscar in Australia, China, Japan, and across Europe. As Big Bird and Oscar, Spinney conducted orchestras across the US and Canada, including the Boston Pops, and visited the White House multiple times. He provided the characters' voices on dozens of albums. A unique collector’s item for kids or for adults who are kids at heart who grew up watching the uplifting Sesame Street tv show series.
