Storyline

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.

Trivia

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 »

Back When Sesame Street Actually Meant Something.

[CONTAINS SPOILERS]

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.
