Well I didn't see the VHS but there was at least 3 or 5 DVD left.
Since Mumford Was On This DVD,Why Wouldn't They Add Any Skits With Mumford And Grover Together Like Grover Was His Assistant Sometimes When Mumford Performed????
A Celebration of Me, Grover CD
I got the CD last saturday at Walmart. The Grover CD. Its cool but most of the songs are on most other LPs, CDs and Cassettes.
Frist song is from the DVD. As in "Grover's Work Song" which is when Big Bird, Elmo, Zoe, Erine and Bert sing the song.
3rd song is the "Over, Under, Around and Through but it's the DVD version so you don't hear about watching the record going around. See what I mean?
5th song is "How do you do?" which is the DVD version w/ Bert and Ernie say a couple of things just like the DVD has then it goes to the song.
Last song is the same as the DVD version just in CD version. "Proud of Me"
MuppetDude,Did You The VHS Yet?If So,How Was It?
No, I didn't.
Well Okay!Please Let Me Know When And How Was It!
I just bought this DVD today and i loved it. It did me reall good to see Fat Blue agine its been some time since i saw him. Which brings me to a point that i find very interesting. Jerry Nelson did a wonderfull job as Fat Blue i thought it was really sweet to hear the nice things he had to say about Grover. I think SS is trying to give Jerry a kind of sending off by trying to bring some of his old muppets back. I'm preety sure we will see sherlock Hemlock very soon. This is also to try and find somone to take his place when he is 100% gone.
Now on to Erick i think he is doing a fine job as Grover but his Bert was way way off. Bert seemed to kind of be on a different page then everyone else to me in this i dont know. I think Ernie and Bert as a couple have really fallen apart i think Steve and Erick need to spend more friend time togher to help this. But Erick's Grover is dead on.
During Grover's Work Song,What Waiter Skit Did They Just Show For A Couple Of Seconds? I Remember Seeing It Before But I Don't Know What Happened Exactly. It's The Ending Part Where Grover Brings So Much Food To Fat Blue And All The Food Falls Down When He Puts It On The Table And Then The Table Stands Sideways Then Fat Blue Gets Mad! Does Anybody Know What I'm Talking About? If So,What Just happens In It And What Year Was It?
i don't have a clue...go to TP...
What's TP BJ
TP stands for "Tough Pigs".
Anyhoo, Tough Pigs has an anthology of Grover Waiter sketches (which has not been updated in a while) which may have some answers to our Grover Waiter questions.
I think that's a royaltees issue.... Really stinks too... I mean, The Simpsons, back when they were funny on SS..... toooo bleeping cool.
Celebration of Grover is on my wishlist with like a bazillion other must haves... but It's a front runner. I mean, SS doing a send up of a 1970's Dean Martin show in 2004? Priceless!
Do You Have DVD Dr.Tooth Or You Just Want To Get It For Christmas
I Mean,Do You Have This DVD Not What I Just Said Like Before.(Do You Have DVD)
I will have to wait for Christmas, or when I can find 10 bucks on the street... LOL! I'm looking for jobs at the moment, but nothing's really turning up, so my DVD collection as of late came from Cereal Boxes....
Dr.Tooth,If You Want To Get This DVD,Go To Kmart Because They Just Have It For $8.99!
Are any full sketches included or is this compilation mostly made up of montages from classic skits?
It would be nice to see some 2-disc sets with complete skecthes included. They could go through all the main characters and than offer discs for assorted character sketches like the various classic monsters and oldschool characters like Forgetful Jones and Don Music, etc. and even issue discs to cover all the song segments with cartoons tossed in the mix between skits. I'm also dying to see Teeny Little Super Guy finally make his DVD debut!
Aww it sounds cute. I guess I'll just have to get it for my little girl. She LOVES Grover. On VHS, she's not quite aware of why you don't step on DVDs yet.
I thought it was a good program. I don't think the matching game was too good of a feature. i would have rather had some bonus sketches (like in what's the name of that song or happy healthy monsters).
I think that the clip montages in this video were done better than the ones in the best of kermit on sesame street. in that one, all of the clips have their audio on, and can be confusing to people who don't know the sketches well. In the first clip montages, everybody sings during the clips, so we only see visuals and are not as curious about the skits as we are when watching the best of kermit. in the supergrover montage, we only see grover crash landing. nothing confusing about that. in the last one, we do hear what's going on, but most of the clips don't really have much to do with what the skits are about.
anyway, most of the skits were great. there were some that I hadn't even heard of before, like the one where grover was a wig salesman. I do wish that the full monsterpiece theatre segment was there (and not just the grover parts), and I would have rather seen "chariots of fur" or "the taming of the shoe" instead of "the king and i". I would have also rather seen grovers "near and far" skit instead of "over, under, around and through", which was already availible on the video "play-along games and songs". Since the abc disco skit was also already availible on video (in "dance along"), I would have preferred to have seen the 'rappin' alphabet" song instead (although I do like abc disco). i would have also rather seen the version of "proud of me" that was done on the show, instead of an all-new version.
Since fat blue complained about grover always making things go wrong wherever he goes, there should have been more fat blue skits (the two complete ones included on the video both took place at fat blues home). ones like "grover the taxi driver", "grove rthe waiter: hamburger" and "grover the consessionist" would have been nice. Considering that sesame workshop was allowed to include two very brief kermit clips, there should have been some full kermit and grover skits, like where they demonstrate heavy and light, or where grover gives kermit ears. some complete global grover skits should have been included.
of the grover songs that have already been released on video, i think that Monster in The Mirror (the version with all the celebrities, which hasn't been availible on video) and Fuzzy And Blue (and orange) should have been on there. During cookie monsters introduction, he said that one reason he liked grover was because they are both furry blue monsters. This line should have been on the album version, as an introduction to the song.
I think that prarie dawn, herry monster and herbert birdsfoot should have been at the ceremony as well.
