In "Christmas Eve on Sesame Street", did Big Bird forget about how Santa Claus gets out?
This is a great question! Yes he did forget...but as the famous poem says, he laid a finger on the side of his nose and giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.
If you need to hire a Santa Claus to read "The Night Before Christmas" you should look at www.HireSanta.com
What was the name of the man in greek mythology that the big bird ate out of his stomach?
Prometheus was a son of Iapetus by Clymene (one of the Oceanids). He was a brother of Atlas, Menoetius, and Epimetheus. He surpassed all in cunning and deceit. He held no awe for the gods, and he ridiculed Zeus, though he fought alongside the gods against the other Titans. Prometheus was the creator of man. When he and Epimetheus ("hind-" or "after-thought") set out to make creatures to populate the earth under the orders of Zeus, Epimetheus went with quantity and made many creatures, endowing them with many gifts that were allotted to the brother for that purpose (fur, claws, wings, and fins were some of these gifts). While his brother was making creatures, Prometheus was carefully crafting a creature after the shape of the gods. It was a man. However, Prometheus took so long in crafting his masterpiece that when he was finished, Epimetheus had already used up all the gifts from Zeus. Prometheus was sorry for his creations, and watched as they shivered in the cold wintry nights. He decided to steal fire from the gods after Zeus disagreed with his idea of helping the men. He climbed Olympus and stole fire from the chariot of Helios (or, in later mythology, Apollo). He carried the fire back in the stalk of a fennel plant, which burns slowly and so was appropriate for this task. Thus mankind was warm. To appease Zeus, Prometheus told the men to sacrifice offerings to the gods. He killed a great bull for this purpose. When the gods smelled the offerings, Prometheus decided to play a trick on the gods. The meat he hid beneath a layer of bone and sinew, whilst the bones he disguised with delicious-looking fat. He then offered Zeus his choice of "meat" for the gods to eat. Zeus picked the plate of bones, and Prometheus took the plate of meat for himself and the mortals. To punish Prometheus for this hubris (and all of mankind in the process), Zeus took fire away from the earth.
To get revenge on Prometheus for his continued offenses, Zeus had Hephaestus (Vulcan) make a woman made of clay named Pandora. This is how the first women were gotten from. Pandora was the mother of all women. Zeus brought her to life and sent her to Prometheus, along with a jar with all the valuable presents she had received from the gods in it. Prometheus was suspicious and would have nothing to do with Pandora, claiming that she was foolish (lacking foresight), and she was sent on to Epimetheus, who married her though Prometheus had warned him not to accept gifts from Zeus.
Zeus was further enraged by Prometheus's escape and had Prometheus carried to Mount Caucasus, where an eagle by the name of Ethon (offspring of the monsters Typhon and Echidna) would eat out his liver; it would grow back each day and the eagle would eat it again. This punishment was to last 30,000 years. About 12 generations later, Heracles (known as Hercules in Roman mythology), passing by on his way to find the apples of the Hesperides as part of the Twelve Labours, freed Prometheus, in a bargain he had agreed with Zeus in exchange for Chiron's immortality, by shooting the eagle with an arrow. Zeus did not mind this time that Prometheus had again evaded his punishment, as the act brought more glory to Heracles, who was Zeus's son. Prometheus was invited to return to Olympus, though he still had to carry with him the rock that he was chained to.
As the introducer of fire and inventor of sacrifice he is seen as the patron of human civilization. Uncertain sources claim he was worshipped in ancient Rome as well along with other gods.
He was the father of Deucalion with Clymene.
When did the adults on Sesame Street start believing Big Bird, that Snufalufagus was real?
This running gag ended with the November 18, 1985 episode of Sesame Street, which was also episode 2096 and the 17th season premiere, when the adults finally met Snuffy. Big Bird is sick and tired of not having the grown-ups believing him when he tells them about Snuffy. So he decides to arrange for them to come to his nest when he yells the signaling word, "Food." When Big Bird calls out the word, Snuffy runs off to tell his mother about it, so once again the grown-ups just miss him. Gordon, wanting to help, suggests to Big Bird that he needs someone to help him keep Snuffy in his nest and Elmo offers to be the one. So when Snuffy returns, Elmo holds on to his snuffle so he cannot go, Big Bird yells, "Food," and one by one the adults come and see Snuffy for the first time ever. After Snuffy introduces himself, Big Bird does an "I told you so" routine to the adults.
How do i catch a toad on runescape to finish big chompy bird hunting?
The inflatable toads
Head back to where you found the wolves. A little west to the wolves you will find a swamp.
Use the ogre bellows on a swamp toad - it tells you that the air is too thin.
Use the ogre bellows on the swamp bubbles in the swamp, at the southern end of the swamp pond. You get three shots with the gas filled bellows before it needs to be filled again.
Use the ogre bellows on a toad again to get a bloated toad and you will catch it and put it in your inventory. You can only get 3 toads at once
when sesame street comes on you see big bird followed by children, the city in the back ground is what city?
The series is filmed at Kaufman Astoria Studios in Queens, New York, New York.
In recent seasons, on-location Muppet segments has increased, primarily through segments like Word on the Street? and Murray Had a Little Lamb. Episodes and specials have taken characters to Central Park, the ABC News studios, and the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art.
As the show spread internationally, live segments featuring children of other cultures were filmed, or intermixed with clips of world youth. The Global Grover segment from recent seasons featured world segments on a daily basis. Special episodes of the series have been filmed on location in Hawaii and Puerto Rico, and specials were produced in China and Japan.
How big a bird are ya? How much does your holiday turkey weigh?
Mine is a little under ten pounds, it'll be for myself, my husband, and possibly my toddler if we can talk him into trying it. Its being suspended over chicken broth which is steaming into the bird as it roasts, with the skin covered in butter. In the cavity of the bird is just a couple stocks of celery and some of the cooking liquid. I just ran into the kitchen to baste and it is already smelling amazing.

what is a good bird to get as your first big bird pet?
Don't get a big parrot. They are SO much more work than you think they are. Get a small-medium sized parrot like a conure, caique, pionus, etc. They still require a lot more care than a lovebird but they are a step-up in the parrot world. Always get a hand tame/hand fed baby if you can. This will make things easier when you decide to train them. Keep in mind, you may still run into problems and you need to be prepared. What if they scream a lot (conures will be very loud)? What if they bite you hard? What if they refuse to come out of their cage? Things to be thinking about. A large parrot is 100x harder to care for and are not for a beginner. I do not recommend a large parrot- they are like owning a three-year old that never grows up. They live to be up to 60 years old..or older! Start with a smaller parrot.
Where can I get a feathered realistic Big Bird costume from Sesame Street?
I found one on ebay
pretty pricey though... here are some other options
Good luck! :)
Can someone please find me a picture of the big bird cage from the 6th Harry Potter movie?
Wow, I've been looking since I saw this question, and no luck.
But, on this video,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rFfU6VDBMc there is a shot of it right at the beginning. At six seconds to be exact.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help!
Do you think Oscar the Grouch is a Capitalist, Snuffaluffagus is a Communist and Big Bird is a Socialist?
No, no, no--you have to look at the lifestyle.
Oscar lives in a trashcan, so he's likely a Communist.
Big Bird is fat and naive and runs the show, so he's likely a Capitalist.
Snuffaluffagus (whoever that is) is by default a Socialist, the imaginery utopian.
What is the name of this big bird that looks like hes indian dressed?
Maybe it's a King Vulture. Here's a link to a photo so you can see if that is the bird:
I found some pictures of toucans, but I don't know if that is what you're looking for.
Hope you find the bird you're looking for between those 2 links. I've visited many avaries and zoos and that is what I came up with.
avater:Why do the avatars bow down to jake when he comes on the big bird thing after they knock down the tree?
They bow down to him because its very difficult to tame the big red bird. Only 5 of the Na'vi had done it before, and jake did it, and so they respect him and bow down to him, and call him Toruk Makto for it.
Trash the bird gal!
You dun wanna risk getting sick gain do ya?
Better to go out and buy another fresher meat cos it's really NOT worth saving that kinda money.
If you were to get sick, the medical bills would probably cost you more!
When Sesame Street tried giving Big Bird a regular name, what name did they try?
As far as I can determine, Big Bird has never been called anything except Big Bird in the US, except when Snuffy called him "Bird". Cookie Monster also has no other name, except when his name is shortened to "Cookie" by various other characters.
In other countries, they call Big Bird by various other names (which, generally, in their languages mean "Big Bird"):
Big Bird is seen in other countries and has in each language a different name:
China: Da Niao
Spain: at first Caponata / but now Paco Pico
The Netherlands: neef Jan
The birds from several international co-productions have been designated as cousins of Big Bird:
Abelardo -- Plaza Sésamo, Mexico
Da Niao -- Zhima Jie, China
Minik Kus¸ -- Susam Sokag˘ı, Turkey
Pino -- Sesamstraat, the Netherlands
Poupas -- Rua Sésamo, Portugal
Where can I buy a Big Bird stuffed animal from Build A Bear?
can't you just ask your boss? maybe he's one of those supervisors that rules with an iron fists and insists you don't speak unless spoken to. who knew that the love of Build A Bears was encompassed with so much hate? maybe after a while they just turn evil like those freakish Furbies *cringe*
AG's are pretty pricey in AU too.
Conures are a great small parrot, big parrot attitudes. green cheeks are the quietest of them.
Quakers, lorikeets, rosellas, senegals. The list can go on.
Eclectus parrots are an excellent pet, right up there with the AG's in intelligence. But you do need to really do your homework on these ones as they can be a tricky bird to care for if you don't research them enough. They're not classed as a general parrot when it comes to diet & care.
You should look around locally & see what is available to you, then go from there.
What if Big Bird was running for President alongside Romney and Obama?
You think there's no real choice here? You are ill-informed.
Democrat President Wilson (1913-1918) said, “You are not here merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, and with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world. You impoverish yourself if you forget this errand.” He may have been the first democrat to appreciate the potential use of multiculturalism (“If it’s white or American, trash it!”) in deconstructing the Constitution, saying, “No nation is fit to sit in judgment upon any other nation.” Obama put it this way (without using a teleprompter!): "Every nation is exceptional in its own way."
Democrat President Roosevelt (1933-1945) “let it all hang out” in his speech before Congress on January 11, 1944:
“We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights...” which included:
-The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation
-The right of every family to a decent home
-The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health
-The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment.
Democrat President Johnson’s Great Society became the largest redistribution of wealth program in our history. Obama has thrust national healthcare upon us, the hallmark of all socialist and welfare states.
25 years ago none of the above was common knowledge. It is only because of more honest, unbiased reporting on the Internet, talk radio and Fox News (all non-existent 25 years ago!) that today we know that the democrat party has been gradually changing America into a European style welfare state.
-2/4/10 Gallup poll: 61% of liberals have a positive view of socialism.
-6/2/11 Gallup poll: 71% of democrats favor re-distributing wealth.
-Now they have national health care, the foundation of all welfare and socialist states.
And Obama’s economy reflects his party’s aspirations:
Obama said, "I can say that 14 days after I signed our Recovery Act into law, we are seeing shovels hit the ground." (3/3/09 http://www.upi.com/Top_News/2009/03/03/O…
Since he bragged about that, three and a half years later the unemployment has been over 8.1%.
Maybe he meant “Shovel ready jobs for government union workers”?
-7/8/11 U. S. News Report (usnews.com): The actual number of private sector jobs decreased since 2008. Government jobs increased. During the worst of the downturn, the private sector was hammered with massive job losses, while the public sector held fairly steady.
-6/8/12 Investors Business Daily: “Private-sector jobs are still down by 4.6 million, or 4%, from January 2008, when overall employment peaked. Meanwhile government jobs are down just 407,000, or 1.8%. Federal employment actually is 225,000 jobs above its January 2008 level, an 11.4% increase.”
-6/11/12 Cato Institute (http://www.cato-at-liberty.org/obama-vs-… school enrollment has minimally increased over the last few decades, but teacher employment has exploded — the public school workforce has grown 11 times faster than student enrollment over the last 40 years.” Furthermore, on a per pupil basis, the inflation-adjusted average cost of a K-12 education has gone from about $55,000 to about $150,000.”
