When Grover's mommy makes him a super hero costume for Halloween, Grover immediately finds that the second he puts it on, he gains super powers and uses them in four amazing adventures. Fed up with winter and snow, Big Bird buys some flowers to cheer himself up. But when he sees his friends in distress from the weather, he is eager to help out and before he knows it, a brilliant change in the weather puts a smile on his beak.

Did You Know?


Caroll Spinney, Fran Brill, and Frank Oz were all available to reprise their roles from the Sesame Street (1969) show; but Jim Henson, Jerry Nelson, and Sonia Manzano were not available to perform voices. In order to compensate for this, Brill redubbed in the dialogue for Maria and the character is renamed "Dolores" for this video. As Will Lee passed away in 1982 (three years before the release of this video), all of Mr. Hooper's dialogue was given to Big Bird to speak instead. Additionally, Bert spoke for Herry Monster. For all of the other cases, the narrator described the lines said by the Count and Ernie. See more »

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!

That loveable muppet from Sesame Street has his very own animated TV special. No, it's not Elmo! It's Grover, who wins over Elmo any day! Grover's mommy makes him a superhero costume for Halloween and as soon as he put's it on, he becomes a superhero. Smarter than a speeding bullet. More furrier than a fast locomotive. Able to eat tall sandwiches in a single bound!

Super Grover helps out his friends in every situation that could possibly come up. Like, his friend Rhonda Subicede was sledding down a hill very fast and Grover tried to stop her by building a giant wall, putting up a stop sign or even trying to grab her, all of which failed. Next, he saved Prairie Dawn from some wild bears. She was doing a play on Goldilocks and the Three Bears and the bears were played by Bert, Ernie and Herry. Grover didn't know this. And finally, on a fishing trip with friends, Grover notices the boat has leaks so he discovers a telephone booth underwater and becomes Super Grover and flies his friends to safety.

This is such a memorable cartoon! Back in the days when Sesame Street was good. Not like today now that those corporate clones ran it smack dab into the ground! I mean on Sesame Street now they've taken away the Fix-It Shop! Come on!! Suppose something broke, like the time Bert accidentally broke David's teapot, he took it to Luis at the Fix-It shop. What will happen if something like this happens again? Would he just order a new one from the Mail-It shop? And Elmo has become the dominant one. WHY? So in conclusion, if you're a fan of OLD Sesame Street like I am, steer clear of the ones on TV today and watch a classic like Super Grover. If you can find it. I recommend it!
