He's furry, he's blue, and he's everyone's adorable, old pal, Grover, in his very own special! Come to the Flyers' Club Roost where everyone on Sesame Street has gathered to celebrate the many sides of Grover.

There are stories of hugs and kisses, and super adventures that end with hilarious crash landings and a few near misses. So come one, come all and celebrate with one of the greatest Muppets of Sesame Street!]]>

The video is done on a theme of a roast for Grover (or, as they say, a "roost", so as not to offend the chickens attending). All the honored guests at the roast are the Sesame Street regulars like Ernie, Bert, Big Bird, Oscar, Cookie Monster, Elmo and Zoe. They all take turns talking about the qualities they think make Grover special. A classic Grover video clip -- some dating back to the 70s -- follows each speech.
All the classic Grover clips are very funny. My daughter's favorite is of Grover singing a song that demonstrates the meaning of "around", "over", "under", "through", "near", and "far". Grover runs all over the place trying to explain these words physically until, at the end, he finally collapses from exhaustion.
Another great skit is a 70s disco of the ABC song. The set for the scene is straight out of Saturday Night Fever and the lyrics to the song are "Now I know my ABCs, won't you come and boogie with me?"
Every skit will make both child and parent smile. Get this video!
I have to say that there are several wonderful things here:
- around around over under through- we like to do that too!
- lena horne is wonderful
- the other skits are great too- super grover, disco grover, etc.
The things I don't like:
- I wish there were more skits and less of the flyers club roost stuff
- everytime you start it up, there is no way to bypass the really long advertisement for sesame street workshop- i paid for this video, I shouldn't have to watch ads if I don't want to!
Final word: There is enough here for any grover afficionado- for any little grover fan out there it is a must have.
