If you’re looking for wisdom and joy in your life, go straight to Sesame Street and heed the words of its most beloved and profound resident, Caroll Spinney, who has spent the past thirty-four years in a bird costume (and a trash can) as Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch.
Three decades inside a giant puppet have taught Spinney a valuable and surprising lesson:
Being a bird can make you a better person. And….
Big Bird can teach you a lot about being a better mascot character. This book really illuminates the power of building and knowing your own character. It shows how that strengthens and empowers you with interactions and ever writing skits.
Gameops.com founder Jon Cudo strongly recommends this book for any mascot perform who wants tap the power of being a fully developed character and not just a guy in a fur suit.
