SynopsisEdit

The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland theatre poster

In the 2nd SESAME STREET theatrical film, 14 years after Follow That BIRD, Elmo spends time with his favorite blanket. When Zoe wants to play with it, Elmo doesn't want to share it resulting in a tug-of-war leading to Telly Monster accidentally taking it away while rollerskating uncontrollably. OSCAR THE GROUCH ends up catching it, sneezes on it & throws it into his TRASH CAN. Since OSCAR wasn't in his TRASH CAN when Elmo finds out, he goes into the TRASH CAN, where he finds his blanket, but Elmo & his blanket soon fall through a tunnel, which OSCAR ends up witnessing & only says, "Have a nice trip! Heh heh!".

Elmo winds up in GROUCHland USA, a world filed with GROUCHES. The evil, greedy Huxley then arrives to take the various belongings, & takes Elmos blanket as well. & since GROUCHES can't stand cooperation, they never do anything to at least try to stop Huxley's evil. Elmo then meets a GROUCH girl named Grizzy, who then shows Elmo where Huxley's castle is, to thank Elmo for previously saving her from Huxley, & Elmo sets off to get his blanket back.

Meanwhile, OSCAR tells the gang that Elmo went into GROUCHland, & they all go in search of Elmo. Once in GROUCHland, however, they get arrested & thrown in jail since it's against the law to ask for help in GROUCHland.

Huxley is aware that Elmo is in search of his blanket, & has his henchmen, Bug & the Pesties, stop Elmo from getting his blanket. They trick Elmo into going into a shortcut, which leads to the palace of the Queen of TRASH. There, when she learns that he's going to Huxley's castle & is believed to be 1 of Huxley's spies, she has Elmo take the ultimate challenge: blow her 100 raspberries in 30 seconds, which Elmo succeeds with help from the audience.

When Elmo gets closer, Huxley gets a giant chicken to stop Elmo. The chicken thinks that Elmo is a worm, but Elmo convinces the chicken otherwise. However, once convinced, the chicken tosses Elmo away. Elmo is about to give up until a caterpillar encourages him to keep trying.

Back at the jail, Grizzy sneaks in to tell Elmo's friends that Elmo is on his way to Huxley's castle. OSCAR, admitting Elmo is his friend, decides to yell out to the GROUCHES outside that, although GROUCHES HATE working together, they simply have to take a stand just this once. The other GROUCHES agree, & they get let out of jail to team up & go to stop Huxley from taking any more of their precious TRASH away. Elmo & the others soon show up & confront Huxley, but Huxley decides to take Elmo's blanket. Bug soon gets a hold of the blanket, & tells Huxley that he's going to give it to Elmo, breaking off his friendship with Huxley. OSCAR leads the gang back to SESAME STREET via a shortcut that he knows. Back on SESAME STREET, Elmo decides to let Zoe hold his blanket.
