Sesame Street

The Good Bird's Club

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Big Bird receives an invitation to join the Good Birds Club. On his way to join he sings about how happy he is to be himself. When Big Bird meets the president of the club, he ridicules Big Bird because of his physical appearance. First, he laughs at Big Bird's large feet, then his large eyes, wings and gigantic beak, and finally his yellow feathers. Each time, Big Bird, feeling rejected, asks Abby to cast a spell to change his appearance in hopes of being accepted into the club. Abby and Elmo attempt to convince Big Bird that he is perfect the way he is, but he is determined to alter his physical attributes. Abby, reluctantly, makes Big Bird's feet smaller, turns him into half of his original size, and eventually turns his feathers blue. Abby realizes that the president of the club is bullying Big Bird so she reports what is going on to an adult. Elmo worries they will be tattling, but they find Chris who explains that they are reporting, not tattling. Reporting is telling a grownup when someone's getting hurt or is in trouble. He explains that it is important to turn to a grownup when someone is being bullied. Chris finds Big Bird and tells him he shouldn't have to change to join a club and that he is wonderful just the way he is. Big Bird admits he likes the way he is and wants to be changed back to being himself. Chris, Abby, Elmo, and Bird start their own club; a club where no one is bullied and everyone is accepted for who they are. Members of the Good Birds Club join too, while Chris plans to help the president understand what it means to be a friend. Together members of the new club sing about why they are special!
