Quotes by Caroll Spinney
"You can exaggerate with puppets. You're not trying to look like real people. The way the Muppets are designed is really appealing. Puppets are best if they're exaggerated creatures."Caroll Spinney
"I've played Big Bird for over half my life, and now I'm in my 80s. It does feel older than 79. Someone said it's just a number, and I said, 'No, I genuinely feel older.'"Caroll Spinney
"I know I don't own Big Bird, but I own his soul, I feel."Caroll Spinney
"Oscar is the exact opposite of how I think you should behave. I just think of it as a negative view of the positive mind I have. Big Bird is sweet and nice and also sympathetic, as kids can identify with him even though he looks like such a bizarre character - great 8 feet 2 inches, a beak 18 inches long."Caroll Spinney
"Big Bird is based on what I learned as a child."Caroll Spinney
