Did You Know?


Two more stories were included in "The Exciting Adventures of Super Grover"' named "I Felt Like a 98oz. Weakling, says Betty Lou" (which spoofs the old Charles Atlas ads) and "Super Grover Meets Hot Fudge Man: A Short but Sweet Story", but those stories are not seen in the video, likely for time constraints. In addition, Super Grover's demonstration "Super flying" passage is omitted from the book as well. See more »


[first lines]
Announcer: He zooms through the sky smarter than a speeding bullet, furrier than a power locomotive, able to leap tall sandwiches in a single bound.
Super Grover: Oh my goodness!
Citizen #1: Look, up in the sky.
Citizen #2: It's an eggplant!
Citizen #3: It's a meatball!
Citizen #1: It's...
Super Grover: It is I! Super Grover! And I am cute, too!

Back When Sesame Street Actually Meant Something.
13 August 2002 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews


Super Grover got his own animated special, so did another popular Sesame Street character. No, it's not Elmo! It's Big Bird. The real star of the show. It's the dead of winter on Sesame Street and Big Bird is sick of it. He can't fly his kite or play in the sand box. Oscar, however, loved it. Big Bird had to do something, so he bought some flowers so remind him of spring. But as he payed visits to all his friends: The Count, Grover, Ernie, Bert, Dolores, even Oscar the Grouch, he distributes the flowers and soon is left with none at all. But spring comes very soon afterwards. You'll notice that when Big Bird meets up with Ernie, he doesn't speak. How come? I guess Jim Henson didn't participate in these

specials. Yeah, these are based on when Sesame Street was good! Over the years they changed it into this...Kind of...New show. Why? What was wrong with the old one? I wish they would release the old Sesame Streets to video. They do with old episodes of All in the Family and M*A*S*H, why not Sesame Street or Mister Rogers? But anyway, if you liked the old Sesame Street and are not up on the new one, then I recommend this animated short.
