hey hey! i was so excited when i found out follow that bird was being re-released on DVD for its 25th anniversary – i’ve always had a soft spot for all things sesame street and this 1985 film is no exception! i hadn’t seen it in a long time but last weekend i tossed it on and it instantly took me back – and was just as good as i remembered it! of course there’s a huge nostalgia factor but i think kids today would totally enjoy it – it sure beats some of the crap being produced for kids today! although i must admit (and i can’t believe i am going to say this) but the commercials for the hannah montana movie have actually peaked my interest – i might have to take myself to see it (with a paper bag over my head!) anyways i’ve got a busy day ahead of me – one of my long-time friends melissa is getting married today – to the guy she had a major crush on in high school – back then i never dreamed they’d end up together but alas they did – and make the perfect couple! popbytes over & out for now … xoxo
The first film to be adapted from the popular children’s television series Sesame Street, Follow That Bird follows the story of Big Bird after a social worker (Sally Kellerman) takes him away from Sesame Street to live with a family of birds in Illinois. Unhappy in his new surroundings, Big Bird attempts to hitchhike back home to Sesame Street. Over the course of his journey he meets a number of odd and charming characters, in the form of cameos by Chevy Chase, Sandra Bernhard, Waylon Jennings, Dave Thomas and John Candy.
