    With all the buzz going on with the holiday season, it can be easy to forget that Caroll Spinney's birthday is the day after Christmas. Caroll turned 83 today.
    Thank you Caroll for bringing my two favorite characters to life, I might've never been a Muppet fan had it not been for Big Bird. I would've never been an artist or a puppeteer if it hadn't been for Big Bird. You've, no doubt, made the world a better place from having been here.

    One of the nicest guys out there to his fans, and such a great performer. Glad to have met him again at Chiller con this past October in NJ for the 4th or 5th time.

    Popping in to wish "The Bird" a Happy Birthday before the clock strikes 12.

    Thanks Caroll, for being brave enough to be you. The world would be a better place if less people were afraid to show who they really are. Everyone of you has a gift and a calling. Follow that gift and you will make a difference in someone's life, even if it's just a few people. Doing what you love can take you to places unimaginable. Caroll Spinney, the most beloved bird in the world was bullied as a kid, kids teased Kevin Clash. Stop caring what other people think and do what you're passionate about.
