Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 28/02/97

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

Ganging up for Grover

It's nice to know that you can make a difference in this world. My repeated rants on the topic of Grover's rise and fall in the Sesame Street pantheon (try here and here for starters) are being heeded! I was quite pleased to receive this email yesterday:

I can't believe it! I've finally found someone who feels the same way as I do. Everybody I know knows how I feel about this subject. Poor Grover has been pushed aside. You can't find him anywhere anymore. I've been buying as much Grover merchandise as I can before it's all gone. There was a time, before Elmo, when Grover was the star. Remember Sesame Street Fever? Grover was on the cover. Those were the days.

Indeed I do. So much so, in fact, that I'm going to shamelessly highlight two more items of Grover merchandising for you to drool over and seek to acquire as a matter of urgency. The first is the cover of the aforementioned Sesame Street Fever album from 1978 (featuring disco versions of 'Rubber Duckie' and 'Doin' The Pigeon'). The second is a more recent acquisition, a mini-Little Golden Book entitled Grover's Mommy. You gotta love it.

Gus promises that next week he won't spend so much time reprinting other people's emails.
