    PITTSBURGH Caroll Spinney will pay a visit to the North Shore movie theater for a Q&A session and screening's of Sesame Street Presents: Follow That Bird at 12:30 pm on May 12 and 13.

    “My career has taken me many places over the years, and I’m very excited to return to Pittsburgh one last time,” said Spinney. “Meeting those who have grown up watching Big Bird and Oscar brings me great joy. I look forward to hearing their stories, as well as seeing Big Bird on a certified giant screen.”

    Doors open at 12:30 p.m. Guests will have the opportunity to meet Spinney, and photo ops and autographs will be available for purchase. David Newell, also known as Mr. McFeely on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, will introduce Spinney, followed by a short Q&A with Spinney before the film starts.

    I really hope he comes to Dallas Texas some time this year. Cause I know I'm going to meet him no matter what. Even if I have to drive myself down there and back. He is one of the few Muppet Performers that I really want to get to meet before he passes on. Not trying to be rude he's two of the best of my favorite characters of all time.

  4. Completely understand and agree! I. Don't think you're being rude, he is after all calling this his farewell tour.

    Where are you located?

  6. I know. It's rare that he attends the same convention 2 years in a row.

    Did you get to see him last year?

    Nope I'm not a very rich man, and have six kids of my own so it was just not possible.
  8. Sorry to hear you missed him. I have one child so far and he's expensive.

    I think there will be some Muppet related appearance at Knoxville this year, isn't there?
