Episode 30 - Granny Bird Visits
HBO Max Premiere: Wednesday May 27, 2020

Big Bird anticipates Granny Bird's visit to Sesame Street! Big Bird returns from getting a feather-cut and sees Gordon. Together, they talk about what near and far mean, which Big Bird demonstrates, until he backs up too far into a stack of crates! Big Bird asks Mr. Hooper for some Gs since Granny Bird likes Gs sandwiches, as well as Gs-cake. Mr. Hooper explains that he means 'cheese' and that G begins words like glass, glove and game. As Granny's arrival approaches, Big Bird is upset because he lost his hat, ruined Granny Bird's flowers, and hurt his wing trying to hang a welcome sign. Susan gives him new flowers, Gordon hangs the welcome sign, and Mr. Hooper makes a pumpkin seed cake. With help from his friends, Big Bird welcomes his Granny Bird.

1969 | 59 MIN
