Last week, Grover stopped by ABC's Good Afternoon America to promote a new Sesame Workshop initiative called "The Partnership for Healthy Mouths and Healthy Lives." Grover showed up to brush his (lack of) teeth with a dentist, a bunch of kids, and the overly-perky show hosts. It's mostly the dentist talking about fairly boring things... but watching Grover try to brush makes it all worth it. I don't understand how to embed videos from Hulu at the proper point, but luckily our good friends at ToughPigs.com do! So head on over there to watch the video, and then watch the other video in which the hosts and Grover discuss I Am Big Bird!
