Behind the Monster: Grover is Bitter

This is a fun Behind the Music parody starring my all time favorite muppet, Grover. From the site:

GROVER. To millions of children throughout the world in the seventies and eighties, that name was synonymous with a funny, cuddly and ultimately loveable fuzzy blue monster from Sesame Street. For many of us, Grover was hands-down the best character on the show: bringing laughter, intelligence and a certain irreverence not seen in other 2-dimensional children’s programs of the day. And he was cute, too.

But what many of us didn’t see behind that brave exterior was a monster cowering in the face of his own insecurities, a monster so unsure of himself he wouldn’t even watch his own performances, and a monster who ultimately allowed his own weaknesses to overcome him and nearly ruin his career. A genius, a tyrant, a womanizer or just a washed-up drunk? It’s time to expose Grover- the monster behind the myth.

    I feel the same way.  Sesame Street sucks now.

    I’ve heard that they’ve changed Cookie Monster’s song (my fav muppet, btw) from “C is for Cookie” to “C is for Carrot.” They believe it serves a better message of nutrtition.  WTF?  The Cookie Monster from my childhood would rather impale himself on Big Bird’s beak than eat a carrot.

    oh this will change when they realize C for carrot is to much like C for Cock. but hey that sounds like a furry porn w/ bigburd and kookiemonster.

    Evil Bert warms my heart.  Plus it’s fun to see puppets being naughty.

    Aha, I knew Super Grover didn’t get his powers naturally!  Speed Junky!

    Poor Cookie Monster! All this time, I thought that “C is For Cookie” was a party song. Now I know the aweful truth; It was a cry for help.
