    “Sesame Street is my habitat!” he sings. “Sesame Street is my home!”

    Indeed, Big Bird — that towering, yellow-feathered 6-year-old — has been calling Sesame Street home for four decades, ever since the show premiered on Nov. 10, 1969.

    Now, as the show marks its 40th anniversary on Tuesday on PBS (check local listings), he remains an essential member of the flock. He’ll even get to meet first lady Michelle Obama, who will visit the show and, according to previews, bond with Big Bird about the both of them being tall.

    He is still brought to life by Caroll Spinney, who also plays trash-can denizen Oscar the Grouch.
