Big Bird is sent to live far from Sesame Street by a pesky social worker named Miss Finch. Unhappy, he runs away from there, prompting the rest of the Sesame Street gang to go on a cross-country journey to find him.
When Big Bird leaves Sesame Street, a sad classical music is playing; it is Antonio Vivaldi's "Concerto for lute, 2 violins and continuo in D Major II - Largo". It was used in a short film (called "Sad Flower Film" by fans) in an early episode of the show, and after being featured in several episodes through the years, that short film was featured in Sesame Street: Farewell Mr. Hooper (1983) (Episode #1839), directly after the segment where Big Bird is told by the people of Sesame Street of Mr. Hooper's (Will Lee's) passing, which augmented its sad atmosphere. With that in consideration, the song may have been selected as a fan service, to similarly permeate the sad, dramatic atmosphere of Big Bird leaving Sesame Street.
Ladies and gentlemen, would you please rise for the Grouch Anthem.
