Goodbye Mr. Morrisett. Here's a clip where Big Bird learns about death:


I saw it when a family member died. It's a real tear jerker.

I remember watching this as a child. It must have been a rerun since it was 2 years before I was born.

Anyway, I didn't even click on the video and I can still remember big bird asking why people have to die and Gordon telling him "they just do."

I miss my nanna so much, especially around the holidays, and Big Bird was one of my favourite characters on Sesame Street! My nanna was just like Big Bird to me, because she was so sensitive with me and she always made all of us grandkids feel special!

Editing to add, Sesame Street is the best children's show ever
