Little Children, Big Challenges: Divorce

"The Bird Family" is a Sesame Street song originally from a News Flash sketch.

Kermit the Frog interviews a small bird (Fran Brill) in the park, who sings about how her mom (Camille Bonora) and dad (Jerry Nelson) live in separate trees (implying they are divorced or separated). Despite this, she knows she is loved no matter which home she is in, including her grandma's (Pam Arciero).[1]

This is the last News Flash segment to feature Jim Henson as Kermit.[1]

A new version of the song was sung in Little Children, Big Challenges: Divorce by Birdie (John Tartaglia) along with his bird parents (Leslie Carrara-Rudolph and Kevin Clash), and Abby Cadabby.
