Today is Jim’s birthday! 💜 (September 24th) He would’ve been 85 years old today. I know this might sound weird, but I genuinely feel a really strong connection to Jim. I know he passed away 5 years before I was even born so it might seem silly to say that, but I really do. His optimistic outlook on life is exactly like mine. His creativity inspires me beyond words. His work and all the characters/worlds he created never fail to make me smile, laugh, and feel hope. I wish so badly that I could meet him, sit with him and talk to him about life and thank him for everything he did for the world. The world needs more people like Jim, who so strongly believed in the power of optimism, acceptance, laughter, kindness, and joy ❤️ Happy Birthday Jim! We love you! I hope you’re having a wonderful celebration up in heaven! ❤️

Ppl freaking out about the Gonzo Sesame Street dress thing recently when literally all that happened was gonzo wore a dress to a party: THEYRE BRAINWASHING ALL THE KIDS TO BE GAY!!!! BACK IN MY DAY MEN IN CARTOONS ACTED LIKE M E N!!! BLAH BLAH MACHO BLAH BLAH EMASCULATION
Me, every other queer person, allies, Chuck Jones Himself: I'm sorry did you forget the part where one of the most iconic cartoon characters in history was coded as a gender non-conforming man who kisses other men on the lips and flirts with them and wears drag because he feels like it? And he's been this way literally since his inception decades ago?

Making friends with people from other countries is so crazy. I sent my group chat a Big Bird gif.
Tumblr media
And this one girl says, “why isn’t he blue?”
I’m like, the fuck you mean??
So today I learned that in the Dutch version of Sesame Street, they do, in fact, have a blue Big Bird.
Tumblr media
I was baffled by this so I went on Muppets Wiki and guess what.
In Mexico, Big Bird is green and his name is Abelardo.
Tumblr media
Turkish Big Bird (aka Minik Kus) is apparently fucking orange.
Tumblr media
This looks like a fuckin alternate universe or smth. I can’t.

Muppet Fact #120
Granny Bird, Big Bird's paternal grandmother, has had her place of residence change quite frequently throughout the course of Sesame Street. At first, she lived at a farm. Then, at 12 Forrest Road. Then, at a beach house. And finally, at a house in the countryside.
