I remember Jen pointing out how the acting and performing gigs she tends to get are unconventional, given she's a tall woman with short hair and a deep voice, but being Granny Bird seems like a good performing role for her for that very reason.

This was a very good episode! I love how Big Bird is getting more of the spotlight! I cannot wait to see how this season unfolds.

This may be the most Big Bird-centric episode in a while. It seems like in the past couple seasons he had been mostly used as a supporting character.
And when they started shortening the “main cast” to six or seven characters, Big Bird was among those characters. Surprised to hear he’s been treated more like a supporting character, unless they quietly started treating some of the “main six” of 2016 like supporting characters and it hadn’t been announced.

So, apparently, they sponsored the number 40 for the 40th season premiere, but sponsored the number 7 instead of 50 for the 50th season premiere? Peculiar.
