I was watching, I think, NBC, and they were talking about inflating the new Thanksgiving day balloons. This year, we have Shrek (and a Shrek plush for sale at Macy's), Hello Kitty, and Abby Cadabby. Now, this is pretty far for a character to come in just 2 seasons. It took Grover 30 odd years to get his own balloon. So far, Abby is the 4th Muppet to get a balloon, allong with Big Bird, Kermit, and Super Grover. Unless I'm wrong, not even Elmo got a balloon. But on the subject of the latter, does this mean that they've dropped Grover for Abby? It would be a shame if that was the case, since Super Grover is one of my all time favorites.
