    Guys...why did nobody like Little Bird? You know him, he's a little friend of Big Bird from the early days!

    No, I mean, when anyone watches Sesame Street when they're kids during the 70's, they did not like Little Bird.

    I vaguely remember Little Bird. I've seen him in books and I remember an episode from the 80s where Little Bird made sort of a guest appearance. I think the gang was looking for a home for him or something. I guess they decided that since Big Bird's best friend was Mr. Snuffleupagus, they didn't think it was necessary to have a bird that was Big Bird's opposite.
  5. Hey, I've always loved Little Bird! :)


    I have!

    As a matter of fact, growin' up, I'd always wished we'd gotten to see her more...(I used to think it was a he, but then I thought I learned it was a she? Hmmm...)

    Anyway, yeah, cute character, go Little Bird! :D

    Little Bird is female? I never knew that.
  7. I think so, anyway...seems to me that "SS Unpaved" said so, but I know there are a few mistakes in the book---maybe somebody who's seen more sketches or has some on tape can clarify for us. :)

    I don't know, I liked Little Bird and that voice Fran gave her. (It is a her, right?) Perhaps most of the kids didn't stay interested in her for very long.

    I dont recall Little Bird that much...but now the little bird now has his own mini action figure(thanks to those great folks in Japan) and if ya look closely Jamie put him in the MC 5th Annv banner.

    Is it a He or She ?

    He/She was a classic Muppet, and always made me get excited when i saw him/her.

    I rember Little Bird from books but not really the TV show,I liked him not sure why others wouldn't,I reckon they could have used Big Bird & Little Bird to show opposites & birds aren't always the same size.

    Little Bird is my obscure SS character fave. That's why he/she sneaks into my menus. Little Bird can be seen in in the Big Bird rollover in theCards section, is a regular in the main page arches and can be seen in the limited Muppet Central celebration menu.

    Funny enough, I always thought Little Bird was voiced by Jerry Nelson and was a boy. Does anyone know if Little Bird started off that way. I am aware of several recasts. Maybe I'm just old. LOL!
