Eight feet tall and poofing with yellow plumage, Big Bird is more than a mere pop-culture icon. Since 1969, when the bandy-legged Muppet made his debut on the groundbreaking PBS series Sesame Street, the eternal boy-bird with the high-pitched voice has been the identifying figure for generations of preschoolers and gradeschoolers. What Big Bird learned, millions learned along with him.
