>Sesame Street kicks off its 40th season on Nov. 10, but “I don’t feel a day over 6!” says Big Bird, who shares his most memorable celeb visitors over the years.

MARGARET HAMILTON (1976)

She was the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz, but I don’t really think she’s that wicked. I hear it’s not easy being green!

CANDICE BERGEN (1990)

She is such a nice lady! She’s visited a couple of times. I think she should see if there’s an apartment available next to Bert and Ernie’s.

WILL ARNETT (2008)

He was a funny magician who kept dropping cards and scarves. He thought he was great at making everything disappear. When I drop things, I just feel clumsy.

SANDRA OH (2008)

She was a cookie fairy who helped Cookie Monster get the “cookie touch.” I was hoping this would mean he could make a batch of birdseed chips.

MICHELLE OBAMA (2009)

She has a love of seeds like I do, but she likes to plant them in a garden and grow vegetables. I like to have them in my birdseed milk shakes.
