"It is I, Super Grover!"

 

This direct-to-video Sesame Street feature starring "lovable, furry old Grover", Sesame Street: A Celebration of Me, Grover, is a hilarious salute to a favorite Sesame Street character. Big Bird, Elmo, Zoe, and the gang celebrate some of Grover's most memorable moments, treating viewers to vignettes in which the multi-talented monster takes on some of his many roles, including Super Grover, a rather frustrating waiter, a confused marshal, and more. What better time than Labor Day to celebrate this hard-working Muppet? 

 

Grover has won a Frequent Flyer of the Year award, if only he can make it to the dinner! While the gang waits for the guest of honor to arrive, viewers are treated to some of Grover's most memorable moments. These inculde Super Grover stories, in which Grover often declares, "and I am cute, too!" after making a crash landing, as well as vignettes that has the fuzzy blue monster delivering a singing telegram, taking on the role of waiter, and more. 

 

The always-eager but often beleaguered Muppet goes to great pains to introduce children to basic concepts, as in the video's "Around, around, around, around; over and under, and through" vignette. Grover demonstrates these concepts to the point of exhaustion, but with unmatched dedication. Mr. Blue, the man who is all too often at the receiving end of Grover's mistakes and fumbles, is one of the many guests at the dinner, hosted by Big Bird. 

 

This celebration of the always eager and well-meaning Grover is as warm and fuzzy as the super monster himself, and will delight both kids and their parents. 

 

A Celebration of Me, Grover (Jewel Case) CD is also available as a wonderful complement to the video. This CD features 12 of Grover's edutaining hits, including "How Do You Do?" performed by Lena Horne and Grover himself.
