(Thanks for the tip, Polythene Pam.)
Huckabeast, your friend is hitting on me, I think.
I’ll be happy to chaperon the first date, briadru4.
I dunno man, I generally try to only date super he—-hooooooly shit!
something something something katy perry something something.
sorry, SUPER hungover today, you guys.
I couldn’t watch the whole thing because apparently Grover terrifies my dog. Best guard dog.
So Sesame Street is saying black people are monsters? Poor taste, Sesame Street. Poor taste.
Black people have pictures of monsters in their wallets?
Who black? You black? Moo black.
Jesus people, I don’t think you even remotely got the joke in the way that I intended. Plus, I didn’t make the band up, they’re a real thing.
UGH like the rhymey part is like sesame street and because children. Sesame Street is racist, and children like chocolate milk. I fully expect you all to come to my joke’s funeral, now that it has officially been declared dead.
Steven knows this is best for the kids in the long run
Is that still Frank Oz? Hard to tell.
Any time I see Grover I think about my mom reading The Monster at the End of This Book to me in the Grover voice and me BEGGING her not to turn the page each time.
Your childhood is adorable!
Were you always a hunky unicorn?

Sometimes I want to smell like a monster (mostly when I’m thinking about facetaco) but sometimes I really DO NOT want to (when I’m pondering Steve Winwood.)
There is a MONSTER at the end of this thread! OH, I am so scared of monsters! Please don’t scroll down.
I have an idea. If you won’t scroll down, we will never get to the end of this thread, and we won’t see the MONSTER.
NO! Why did you scroll down!
I am going to have to tie this threat in place on the internet so you can never scroll to the bottom and unleash the MONSTER hiding there.
NO! YOU DID IT AGAIN!
Why did you scroll down more. Don’t you know there is a MONSTER AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS THREAD!
NOW STOP SCROLLING DOWN!
THERE! I have nailed this thread in place. There is no way you can scroll down this thread and we will never see the MONSTER.
UGH. All right. All right.
Do you know that every time you scroll down, you not only bring us closer to the MONSTER at the end of this thread, but also you make a terrible mess?
I am going to build a brick wall to keep you from scrolling down any further. There is no way you can scroll down now.
Do you know that you are very strong?
If you scroll down one more time, you will be at the end of this thread where the MONSTER IS! I am very scared.
Do not scroll down any more.
Oh, look. We are at the bottom of this thread and it is only Teacherman. And you were so scared.
Isn’t there a monster at the end of every videogum thread?
Mans, if you’re scared of Monsters I think you came to the wrong place…BOO!
More precious than a pot of gold.
You are awesome.

Sesame Street is amazing.
I love the transcendent moments of adulthood when you realize that something you watched as a child and thought was funny actually WAS funny but you had no idea why at the time. If that makes sense.
I personally have smoked enough weed in my life that it does.
I am kidding, not about the weed but I know what you mean even without it. Like when you see “Easy Reader” on Electric Company years later and you get that it was an Easy Rider joke.
To say nothing of “Fargo North, Decoder”
Look at yourself, now look at me, look at your life, look at your choices.
Relative newcomer to monsterdom, but given my handle, I’m obliged to comment. While its early, I’ll just get out the gate and say it:
Fuck Elmo. Grover is the shit.
I saw something floating around the internet about a Super Grover 2.0 popping up on The Street, so between that and Elmo getting ushered into manhood by Katy Perry, we can only hope this is the beginning of a new Grover Renaissance, one which will save the next generation from being terrible shitty Twilight and Bieber worshiping nightmare creatures.
Did I just connect being raised on Elmo with Twilight and Justin Bieber? You’re damn right I did.
This is the kind of stuff that Sesame Street used to do exclusively but that got supplanted when stupid Elmo came to town and started babying shit up all over the place.
I am a Grover loyalist and always will be. I’d sniff him for real.
If only Square One was still around, then we could turn this into Old Splice.
Look at me, now look down, now back at me, I’m dividing by five.
This is what I use:
“i don’t get it. when is he going to make a prank phone call?”
– comedy central executive
“I don’t get it. when is jeff dunham going to make him say something racist?”
-other comedy central executive
“Oh I got it! It’s funny because he’s blue!”
-third comedy central executive
Tell me if I’m reading this wrong — although I think it’s been implied in other mediums like Skeeter on Doug — but Blue muppets are suppoused to be black, right?
I don’t think that’s a thing. Like, I’m pretty sure the brown human muppets are black but beyond that–???
I just googled Grover to see if there was any mention of his subtle accent (French? German?). And then I really wished I had a job again because it was always fun to have the most random collection of items in my recent history–just in case someone looked. This would have gone nicely below the imdb page for Sage Stallone.
Well, that didn’t work. Who wants me to explain the visual joke I screwed up?
if i must– EXPLAIN! (please)
I danced like this when I saw the video!
You guys, this weekend I went to the New York Comic-Con (you guessed it, I am a major nerd), and the guy who plays Big Bird, Caroll Spinney, was there signing autographs and taking pictures! I was so excited to get a photo with him – I watched “Sesame Street” when I was a kid and I still think the show is great. Yay childhood!
I’m a MONSTER!!!
TRUE MUD!!! The little kids especially got this reference…
Who wants to smell like nerds and desperation for upvotes?
Don’t hate. Appreciate.
In the eighth grade i did a report on monsters and wrote to the CTW asking them for info. I told them Grover was my favorite and when they wrote back, they included an autographed photo of Grover, with the following written in Grover’s own handwriting (it was his, i swear): To (my real name), From your lovable Furry Monster Friend, Grover.
Needless to say, even though I’m pushing 30 now, I still have it framed on my wall.
I have a Sesame Street poster that came with an LP that my parents got me when I was like 2, which as I’m sure you can tell was a long-ass time ago. Not only was it of Sesame Street, it was drawn by the great Jack Davis who some of you may know is (was?) a Mad Magazine artist, and as it happened a few years later Mad became one of my consuming passions. Since it was drawn by Jack Davis all of the characters look very weird.
The poster is totally jacked up because it traveled with me to boarding school and college for years, where I did not quite realize the damage that taping or blue-tacking it on the walls and pulling it down every few months was going to do. But a few years ago I restored it the best I could with a little foam board and elbow grease and finally framed it. And the thing is HUGE. It makes me sad when people come over and don’t comment on it since it is in a very prominent place in my living room.
Yes, I am a huge pop culture nerd.
I guess I’ll be the lone dissenter. I don’t really like this. I think since sometime around ooohhhhh May 16, 1990, the Muppets have gotten more antic and lost almost all of their warmth. I think this is coasting on the charm of Grover (which: Grover could be dressed like a Nazi for an Ohio Congressional Candidate parody and come through OK); I think this is equivalent to a Family Guy “joke” where the entirety of the “joke” is just the fact that they are referencing something. I think that in The Biographical Dictionary of Film, David Thomson’s entry on Jim Henson nails it; he wonders now that Henson’s gone, who will be left to make things for the weird kids? I think that this is not for the weird kids, it is for the pop culture ouroboros, and I’m not even sure I learned what “on” means.
Patrick M, have I got a book for you:
Thanks, but actually that was a typo. I meant “Loan Dissenter”. (I work for GMAC.)
(Note: I do not really work for GMAC.)
Anything is possible when you post like a monster and know the word “Topher Grace.”
Adorable. Now here’s Kermit singing The Boss..
“What is in your hand? Back at me. I have it. It is a clam with two tickets to the thing you love.”
By teaching about the word on, Grover has now found himself on the internet to help initiate a conversation on the subject of monsters on videogum.com
