Information on the rapper
Big Bird first appeared on the premiere of Sesame Street in 1969, and has remained one of its main characters since. He was originally designed by a drawing from Jim Henson and built by Kermit Love in 1969. The design was based on a previous Henson creation. Officially performed by Caroll Spinney from 1969 to 2018, he is an eight-foot two-inch tall bright yellow anthropomorphic canary. He can roller skate, ice skate, dance, swim, sing, write poetry, draw, and even ride a unicycle. Despite this wide array of talents, he is prone to frequent childlike misunderstandings, such as pronouncing the alphabet as one long word.
In 2000, Big Bird was named a Living Legend by the United States Library of Congress.
What's up? It's your boy from Sesame Street
Here to rap against a freak with size 17 feet!
You're like Oscar the Grouch's house because you're trash!
Walkin' 'round in green like Shrek with a mustache!
Larry Bird? More like Scary Bird, you ogre!
You look like Frankenstein's monster, but older!
You're trying to battle with a childhood hero!
This one on one is gonna end with Larry Bird, zero!
Wow, I can't believe what I just heard!
No way you just called me the flightless Bird!
You can't jump; you can't run! Stick to the threes
'Cause the Hick from French Lick surely can't hit me!
I'm like Snuffleupagus the way I bob and weave!
I'm the number one dunking on 33!
The letter of the day is U, as in U got served,
So why don't you go ahead and try and Follow That, Bird!
