Big Bird's Birthday

Today is Big Bird’s birthday! We love this classic Sesame Street character’s honesty and inquisitiveness. And, of course, his eye-catching color! Big Bird first appeared on Sesame Street in 1969, and has been a beloved character ever since. He and his teddy bear sidekick, Radar, are up for anything fun – roller skating, ice skating, dancing, singing – even writing poetry or drawing. 

Celebrate Big Bird’s birthday by watching an episode of Sesame Street with your family. You can also celebrate your love of Big Bird by sending one of our free Sesame Street online invitations for an upcoming party!
