Big Bird has been operated by a man named Caroll Spinney for the past 45 years. The six foot tall man stands inside the 8’2 puppet and pulls the strings. He uses his right arm to hold up Big Bird’s head, using his little finger to move his eyelids and thumb to open and close the beak.

He then uses his left arm to flap Big Bird’s left wing, an attached string helps to move the right wing as well. The confined space gives him little room to see so he must wear a small television set strapped to his chest to see what the audience sees.
