And in one fell, um, swoop(?), Grover reminds us all why HE IS THE MOST AWESOME MUPPET EVER. From Super Grover to SpiderMonster, he has done it all. Your move, Elmo.

Sesame Street has really done an amazing job with their parodies over the years. They've really mastered the balance between humor that appeals to kids and nudge-nudge-wink-winking to the adults.
With all due respect to Grover, however, nobody will ever top the original: Cookie Monster as Alistair Cookie hosting Monsterpiece Theatre (examples here and here).

I do a passable Grover voice and this may be just the thing I need to alienate the last of my friends.

So this isn't about some stealthy mountain, then?

Spider-Man with the Muppets previously, and Grover with Mr. Johnson previously. Beware, Muppet Wiki will pull you in.

Bonus points for rhyming 'sky' and 'fly'

It's really terrible. First the RNC fires him as chairman, and now cute, fuzzy, loveable Broadway actors continually fall on him.

As soon as Mr. Johnson walked in, I knew just where this was headed.

Also, it looks like the crew of Spider-Monster has not mastered over, under, and through. If only there was someone who could help them with that...

filthy light thief, I'm amazed at the number of places that blue Muppet encounters Grover outside of the restaurant. Dear lord, Grover really is that man's tormentor.
