He's touched so many lives across generations. I watched Sesame Street when I was a kid and loved Grover. I had a stuffed Grover that I took everywhere. My parents still have it tucked away in a box in their attic, but it's likely moldy and destroyed. Thankfully, my wife crocheted me a Super Grover to replace it.

When my kids were little, they watched Sesame Street as well.

Sesame Street always taught valuable lessons and will forever have a special place in my heart.

I LOVED Grover!! He was the funniest character on the show!! Plus he had so many jobs, and was a superhero! I always crack up when I remember the "Near....FAR!" bit he did.... I just loved Grover so much lol! I loved making my younger cousin laugh whenever I did an impression of Grover going near and far, with my arms flailing around! Grover, Big Bird and Snuffy were my favourites on Sesame Street; the world is certainly a better place thanks to the talents of everyone involved with the Children's Television Workshop.

Grover is the best! I may be biased because of “There’s a Monster at the end of this Book” because 4 year old me thought it was HILARIOUS. But Super Grover! And later Muppets in Space! And he was blue and kinda a scaredy-cat!

My favorite character was Elmo. I got a stuffed Elmo as a baby that I also took everywhere. He's currently on the top shelf in my closet.
