A tug-of-war between Elmo and his friend sends his blanket to faraway Grouchland, a place full of grouchy creatures and the villainous Huxley. Elmo embarks on a rescue mission, learning important lessons about sharing and responsibility.
1996, the same year that Dexter's Laboratory premiered as a full series, was the year THIS ABOMINATION came out. Big Bag was the first god awful show ever put on Cartoon Network, promoting two of the worst things Cartoon Network would EVER do. Preschool shows AND Live- action shows. Betty Cohen, I think, even realized how stupid she was with the idea of green-lighting this mess. Big Bag was such a terrible show, that Sam Register, had to remove it after being vice president of Cartoon Network. Don't get me wrong, I loved Sesame Street as a kid, and still do today. Sure, it has gone downhill years later, but I would still have fond memories of Sesame Street. But I can't believe that some right-wing idiot at Sesame Workshop thought it was a great idea to create a show for Cartoon Network. Just because Big Bag is live- action and has puppets and cartoons in it doesn't mean it's a cartoon. It's just as bad as Tickle U and CN Real. Big Bag is, as a live-action show, a 1990s version of Out of Jimmy's Head and CN Real, but as a preschool show, tied with Small World for the 1990s Tickle U. Big Bag deserved to be forgotten forever.
