Granny Bird is Big Bird's grandmother. She is almost identical in appearance to her grandson except for her clothes, the gray feathers in her forehead, faded eyelids, and eyeglasses.

The puppet used for Granny Bird is a spare Big Bird puppet, and Caroll Spinney provides her voice. As Granny Bird's appearances are often alongside Big Bird, her voice is usually pre-recorded so that Spinney can perform Big Bird.



  • Episode 3006: Big Bird goes to visit Granny Bird on Grandmas Day. But he sees a sick wolf in bed so he thinks the wolf ate Granny Bird.

Granny Bird then comes to visit Granny Wolf.
