In the credits of Sesame Street, Carroll Spinney is the one Muppeteer that always got special billing. They usually would list the human cast followed by "and Carroll Spinney as Big Bird and Oscar," then the rest of the Muppet performers after. I always found this interesting. I think Spinney certainly deserves this special credit, but what is gonna happen when he retires and Matt Vogel takes over Big Bird full time? Is it going to say "and Matt Vogel as Big Bird" or will they just leave him listed with the others? Just a thought.
