BIG BIRD

Caroll Spinney Matt Vogel

SPINNEY & VOGEL on the set

MATT VOGEL has served as CAROLL SPINNEYs understudy for BIG BIRD, since 1997. In most cases before Season 48, VOGEL would manipulate the PUPPET to SPINNEYs vocals (either pre-recorded, dubbed in post-production, or provided live on set), however there have been several appearances & performances where VOGEL has provided the vocals for BIG BIRD as well, most notably in the Journey to Ernie segments that ran from 2002 to 2005.

Appearances before Season 48 where MATT VOGEL performed BIG BIRDs voice:

OSCAR THE GROUCH

Oscar the Grouch for LWT

OSCAR THE GROUCH on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

By 2015, ERIC JACOBSON became SPINNEYs understudy for OSCAR THE GROUCH; often lip-syncing to a prerecorded vocal track by SPINNEYs, & other times doing the voice himself.
