Big, brightly feathered
and beloved by millions, Big Bird makes his feature film debut in the
live-action family film Sesame Street
Presents: Follow That Bird.
After well-meaning do-gooder Miss Finch (Sally Kellerman) sends Big Bird (Caroll Spinney) to the suburban Dodo family for adoption, the gawky, gullible eight-footer runs away and heads back to Sesame Street. When word spreads that Big Bird has flown the coop, all his old buddies--human and otherwise--join in the search for their fine-feathered friend. But Big Bird has run into the Sleaze Brothers--Sid (Joe Flaherty) and Sam (Dave Thomas)--a couple of conniving carnies who paint our yellow hero aquamarine!
Will Big Bird return to his home--and to his natural colour? Join the Muppets to find out in Sesame Street Presents: Follow That Bird.
