Big Bird & Company was a stage show that opened in 1989 at the Big Bird Theater (today called the Monster Rock Theater.)

The 18 minute show featured Big Bird dancing the robot to Axel F and characters doing the moonwalk.
The show featured both Honkers, Ernie & Bert, Prairie Dawn, Cookie Monster, Grover and of course Big Bird.
The opening of the show went like this:
Big Bird: Hi everybody, my name is Big Bird. What's your name?
(Every child in the audience shouts their name out)
Big Bird: Well, nice to meet you Jim, Pat, Dave, Jan, Howie, Reuben, Jeanie, Frank, Debbie, Tommy, Michael, Lisa, Betsy, Warren, Clyde, Harold, Willie, Carol, Paul.
(Axel F starts playing and Big Bird begins to do a robot dance with the Honkers.)
Big Bird (sound robotic): Doug, Frank, Debbie, Jim, Pat, Dave, Howie, Rueben, Dee, Burl, Bret, Joel, Sherry, Jesus, Betsy, Warren, Clyde, Carol, Willie...
