The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland is a 1999 fantasy-comedy musical film based on the long running series Sesame Street. This is also the second Sesame Street film since the release of Follow that Bird in 1985.


Elmo loves his fuzzy, well-worn blue blanket more than anything in the whole world. Elmo's blanket gets sucked into colorful, swirling tunnel into Grouchland, the yuckiest place on earth. Elmo goes on an adventure to Grouchland to retrieve his blanket.
