PERFORMER Jerry Nelson
DEBUT 1989

Birdnardo Birdtolucci is a famous bird director who appears in Episode 2575 of Sesame Street. He and David have been friends ever since he served him the best birdseed sandwich he ever had. Birdnardo asks David to assist him with his latest movie masterpiece, but David instead nominates an excitable Gina for the job. With her help, he produces a film entitled The Last Egg starring Snuffy, Alice, and Big Bird (who also wrote the picture).

Birdnardo Birdtolucci is a spoof of Italian film director Bernardo Bertolucci. Among the character's other directorial works are Planet of the Eggs (parts 1 and 2), Eggs-orcist, Eggs: Italian Style, The Sound of Egg and Singin' in the Egg.

Other appearances[]

The same puppet was initially used in Follow That Bird as a part of the Board of Birds and subsequently as a patron at Birdland (including Episode 3060, performed by Rick Lyon).

He was used years later in Episode 4512 as a member of the Supreme Bird Court (named in the script as Swan Robirds, spoofing Supreme Court justice John Roberts), performed by David Rudman.
