DEBUT 1985

Madame Chairbird is the turbaned head of the Feathered Friends society in Follow That Bird. Appearing in the film's pre-credits scenes, it is she who first brings before the Board of Birds the sad case of Big Bird, attracting the attention of Miss Finch and setting the plot in motion. Madame Chairbird re-appears within the film on the cover of Newsbeak magazine.

Madame Chairbird was one of the few new characters from Follow That Bird to be recycled on Sesame Street, often appearing as a patron at Hoots' Birdland club.

She also appeared in The Muppets: A Celebration of 30 Years, Don't Forget to Watch the Movie, and crowd shots in various episodes of The Ghost of Faffner Hall and The Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo.

A slightly altered, yet very similar puppet was later created for Nani Bird from Sesame Beginnings. This revised puppet has also appeared in episodes of The Furchester Hotel, appearing as Mrs. Flappingham in "Penguin Bobsleigh Team", and Mrs. Birdie in "Eggsitting."
