Yeah...it was pretty inevitable it would happen. It is amazing that he's played the two for 50 years. That is a huge milestone.

That's a fantastic article, might I add. Love the images of the SS memorabilia at their house.

Nearly 50 years of such hard work and dedication... that's quite impressive, and shows just how much he loves working with Sesame Street.

Carroll has more than earned his retirement, and he will definitely be missed on the Street. Thank you, Carroll Spinney, for completing my childhood and for being such a wonderful man. :wisdom::grouchy:
