Big Bird's father 0030
DEBUT 1969

Big Bird's Daddy, much like his mother, has often been alluded to on Sesame Street. He was described in most detail in Episode 0077 as being a hard-working bird to provide for the family, while making time to raise his hatchling by teaching what a young bird should learn, including minding one's manners and helping around the house. He is depicted in photograph in Big Bird's family album in Episode 0030.


  • Episode 0077 - Big Bird mentions when his father wasn't off-working, he'd be fixing up the house, keeping it "ship-shape." Once when the birdbath sprung a leak, he patched it.
  • Episode 0246 β€” Big Bird dons a long, white beard and mustache while pretending to be his father, "VeryBig Bird."

  • Episode 0948 β€” After a kid builds a tower taller than he is, Big Bird says, "That's about the tallest thing I've ever seen. Except for my father."
  • Episode 1125 β€” In the song "Little Brother," Big Bird muses that if he had his own little brother, he could "introduce him to my mom and dad, and they'd be so glad." The same lyric is used in the re-written version, "Little Sister," in Episode 2703.
  • Episode 2998 β€” Big Bird claims he can understand the language of Honkers because he has geese relatives on his daddy's side of the family.
  • Episode 3150 β€” The episode opens with Big Bird finishing an anecdote to Savion: " I said, 'If you think I'm tall, you should see my father'!"
