It’s hard to believe that it’s been two months since Caroll Spinney passed away. The amount of celebration surrounding his life and legacy has been staggering, and I truly believe that everyone has found a way to experience the joy in Caroll’s work despite these sad times.
Yesterday, Sesame Workshop held a private memorial ceremony to help his friends, coworkers, and families pay tribute to this amazing man. While the service wasn’t open to the public, they have graciously shared a video from the event.
In the video below, you’ll see eulogies from Caroll’s family, Sesame Workshop CEO Jeff Dunn, Bob McGrath, Pam Arciero, Martin Robinson and more, as well as a few performances by the Muppet performers and Big Bird himself.
Thanks to Sesame Workshop for sharing this incredible video and allowing us all to be there to celebrate Caroll Spinney one more time.
