FOLLOW THAT BIRD!
Sure, everyone remembers the Muppet Movie and all the subsequent Muppet movies, but who remembers the Sesame Street movie that started it all?
The first Sesame Street theatrical movie, Sesame Street: Follow that Bird, takes viewers on a cross-country adventure in search of Big Bird (Caroll Spinney) who decides to run away from home after he’s placed with a foster family of Dodo birds by Miss Finch, a social worker who is convinced that Big Bird should live with his own breed - birds - instead of his diverse family at Sesame Street.
Big Bird attempts to find his way home while friends, Maria, Cookie Monster, Count von Count, Bert and Ernie, Grover, Oscar and several others, set out to find him. Along the way, Big Bird has several exciting adventures and meets a number of interesting characters, but he’s quick to remain on the move because he’s being pursued by the unrelenting Miss Finch. How can he convince her he’s truly happy living at Sesame Street, amongst his eclectic family?
This is a great movie and a real treat here at The Waltz Compound. Something that we will watch over and over again regardless of how old the kids get. A fantastic flick!
The DVD extras include:
New Interview with Caroll Spinney, Who Plays Big Bird
Jump to a Song (7 Songs Total)
DVD-ROM* Enhanced Features: Downloadable Coloring Sheets
I can't express how good this flick is. Just go get the thing already.
