O Comic Con Welcomes Caroll Spinney


Caroll Spinney

O Comic Con is pleased to welcome Caroll Spinney to our 2017 event. To stay abreast of announcements about guest autograph schedules and Q&A sessions, we encourage you to keep up with us via our newsletter or social media accounts.  View all 2017 guests here.

Caroll Spinney has been Big Bird since the beginning of Sesame Street, and has, in fact, spent half of his life inside a giant puppet. The times that he wasn’t inside a giant puppet, he was in a trashcan, for he is also Oscar The Grouch. He is an author, an artist, and speaker, as well as the recipient of four Daytime Emmy Awards, two Grammy Awards, and the National Academy Of Television Arts and Sciences’ Lifetime Achievement Award.  He is the subject of the fascinating documentary, I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story (available on Amazon Prime, if you want to prepare for his visit to O Comic Con with deeply insightful questions). He has taught countless children that birdseed is a tasty snack, that it is okay to be exactly yourself, and that sometimes it’s okay to be grouchy, too.
