Sesame Street Grover

Grover is a friendly, gregarious and very likeable, blue monster. He is multi-talented, taking on many different roles and professions throughout the series. His childlike exuberance has been making children laugh (and occasionally cringe) for more than three decades.

Grover describes himself as a “cute, furry, adorable monster.” He usually does not use contractions when speaking, which gives him a distinctive speaking pattern. Grover is a well educated monster and is eloquent and knowledgeable.

He is genuinely selfless and concerned for others and excitable – though he can be particularly volatile when he rushes into situations without analysing the consequences.

Along with Elmo, Grover is one of the more popular characters created during the show’s run and children easily identify with him, especially when he is confounded by adult logic, and share his fantasy of competence and control when he becomes “Super Grover,” a problem-solving super hero who can do no wrong.

In recent shows, Grover has become “Global Grover” and introduces children to the world around them, teaching them to be respectful of differences. He brings back short films showing what he has learned about cultures from around the world.
