Sesame Street presents Follow That Bird is a film directed by Ken Kwapis, starring many Sesame Street characters (both puppets and live actors).
Big Bird is sent to Oceanview, Illinois, to live with a family of dodo birds by Miss Finch, a pesky social service worker who thinks he needs to be with his own kind (other birds, instead of the diverse Sesame Street).
Unhappy, Big Bird sets off cross-country to return to Sesame Street, but he is caught by a group of travelling con artists and put on display for profit.

The human cast of Sesame Street are cheerful and light - as you would expect, but it is the good cameos that spice it up.
