GROVER, To millions of children throughout the world in the seventies and eighties, that name was synonymous with a funny, cuddly and ultimately lovable fuzzy blue monster from Sesame Street. We would put down the phone, turn on the TV and watch for hours. For many of us, Grover was hands-down the best character on the show: bringing laughter, intelligence and a certain irreverence not seen in other 2-dimensional children's programs of the day. Answering the call to millions with a smile, love and professionalism, Grover always delivered. He was cute, too.

But what many of us didn't see behind that brave exterior was a monster cowering in the face of his own insecurities, a monster so unsure of himself he wouldn't even watch his own performances, and a monster who ultimately allowed his own weaknesses to overcome him and nearly ruin his career. Grover was even in an episode of Family Guy when Stewie answers the phone, as part of an answering service Houston, and is quickly annoyed as to how Grover is conducting himself. Pretty sure Grover would have preferred an answering service plan rather than talk to Stewie but it is only TV. A genius, a tyrant, a womanizer or just a washed-up drunk? Lets try to plan on answering some quality questions. It's time to expose Grover- the monster behind the myth.
