Picks and Pans Review: Big Bird in China

UPDATED 05/30/1983 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 05/30/1983 at 01:00 AM EDT

NBC (7-8:30 p.m. ET)

In this musical special, Big Bird travels to the Great Wall to find another big bird, the legendary phoenix. It wouldn't be a show from the Sesame Street people if we didn't learn a few words of Chinese along the way. But the film has more than the usual Muppet Show bounce—it is mysterious, magical and greatly moving.
