No matter what year you were born – we’re all familiar with Sesame Street – perhaps the most popular children’s TV show ever created. The show premiered in the late sixties and has become a cultural icon as the years went by. Whether you’ve watched it growing up or watched it with your children, you must be familiar with some of the most popular characters on the show: Elmo, Cookie Monster, Bert, and of course, Big Bird.
The goofy, yellow bird and the other characters have become cultural symbols over the years. So much so, they’ve become iconic characters that received many allusion in television and pop culture, recreations and tributes, and most importantly, Halloween costumes. Some of the Muppets, including Big Bird, even have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
