Sesame Street: Chicken Cheerleaders Balance | Super Grover 2.0


NARRATOR: He observes. He questions. He investigates. SUPER GROVER: What
does this button do? [YELLING] NARRATOR: Super Grover 2.0. He shows. up. At a school gym just
hours before the big game, this cheer squad can’t stop
rah-rah-rocking back and forth. CHEERLEADERS: We’re the
squad that’s full of talent. Hear us cheer and
watch us balance. CHEER CHICKEN 1: That
happens every time. We always fall whenever
we try that move. CHEER ELEPHANT: We need help. Isn’t there anybody
that can help us so we can balance
and not fall over? [YELLING] SUPER GROVER: Never fear,
your hero is– somewhere under this cape– here. CHEER CHICKEN 1: Um, are– are
you a substitute or something? SUPER GROVER: Nonsense. I am Super Grover 2.0. Now, what seems
to be the problem? CHEER ELEPHANT: Every time we
try to do our balancing cheer, like, we fall over. I just can’t seem
to balance them. SUPER GROVER: So the
question is how do you balance the pom-pomed
poultry without falling over? Well, stand back while I
rah, rah, sis boom bah, unleash my powers
of observation. I observe with my Super
Eyes that you have two arms. CHEER ELEPHANT: One, two. Yes, I do. SUPER GROVER: Just
as I suspected. CHEER ELEPHANT: What? What? SUPER GROVER: You clearly
have a case of floppy arms. Yes, yes, that is when one
arm is strong, like, well, an elephant. And the other, not so much. Yep. That arm over there is
clearly your strong arm. CHEER ELEPHANT: Hey, you
know, now that you mention it, that arm does feel stronger. SUPER GROVER: Now I shall
rah, rah, sis boom bah, unleash the power
of investigation. If I am correct, then
when all the chickadees jump to this side, your strong
arm will hold all the weight, and you shall be
perfectly balanced. That is my hypothesis. [CHEERING] CHEERLEADERS: Super Grover,
you’re, like, amazing. SUPER GROVER: Oh,
it is what I do. Now, let us investigate
and show me that cheer. CHEER ELEPHANT: Everybody
line up on this side only. Here we go. CHEERLEADERS: We’re the
squad that’s full of talent. Hear us cheer and
watch us balance. CHEER CHICKEN 1: Maybe,
in order to have balance, we can’t have all the
weight on one side. We need to have an equal
amount of weight on both sides. SUPER GROVER: Or what
if, in order to balance, we have an equal amount
of weight on both sides? CHEERLEADERS: Great
idea, Super Grover. CHEER CHICKEN 1:
I just said that. SUPER GROVER: And by unleashing
my powers of observation, I see there are 1,
2, 3, 4 chickens yes. So if we just put
half of the chickens on one side, 1, 2, and half
on the other side, 1, 2, you will be perfectly balanced. CHEER CHICKEN 1: I’m not really
sure that’s how it works. SUPER GROVER: Nonsense. Two chickens on this side. Two cute little chickens on this
side. hey must weigh the same. CHEER ELEPHANT: OK,
everybody ready? SUPER GROVER: Whoa, whoa,
whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. I’m just going to stand over
here if you do not mind. CHEER ELEPHANT: OK. CHEERLEADERS: We’re the
squad with lots of talent. Hear us cheer and
watch us balance. SUPER GROVER: It works. Ah-haha, see? I was right. CHEER ELEPHANT: Sorry. CHEER CHICKEN 1: I think, if
we want to balance by weight, I think we need some sort of
tool to measure our weight. SUPER GROVER: A tool, you say? Stand back. It is now time for
me to U-N-L-E-A-S-H, unleash the power of technology. Let me check my utility sock. A wedge of cheese? No. A pickle? That’s for lunch later. This thing from
that lawyer show. CHEER CHICKEN 1: What, no, no. Wait. SUPER GROVER: What? CHEER ELEPHANT: That is a scale. SUPER GROVER: Yes. Yes. Yes, it is. Wait, what is a scale again? CHEER CHICKEN 1: A scale is
a tool to measure weight. When the two sides are
perfectly balanced, it means there’s an equal
amount of weight on each side. I’m a large chicken, and
I think I probably weigh more than the small chickens. So I’ll get on this
side, and we’ll find out how many small
chickens weigh the same as me. CHEER CHICKEN 2: 1. CHEER CHICKEN 3: 2. CHEER CHICKEN 4: 3. CHEER ELEPHANT: Oh, look. Three small chickens weigh
the same as one large chicken. The scale is perfectly balanced. Now let’s try the cheer. CHEERLEADERS: We’re the
squad that’s full of talent. Hear us cheer and
watch us balance. SUPER GROVER: Perhaps
the other arm is floppy. Whoa, you’re balanced. NARRATOR: And so Super Grover
learned that to stay balanced, it helps to have an equal
amount of weight on both sides. SUPER GROVER: Big cheer
for Super Grover 2.0. Whoa, whoa. Now I am a little off balance. Thank goodness for
my Super Waterwings. This raft if heavier
that I thought. Someone’s been living
high on the hog. PIG: Oh, I told you not
to eat so much roast beef.

  1. JESUS LOVES YOU GOD BLESS YOU JIM HENSON THANK YOU FOR TEACHING ME MY ABC AND THANK YOU FOR GROVER BIG BIRD AND KERMI

  2. Look at how abnormally high up that fire alarm pull station is. Usually in gymnasiums like those I see the pull station located in an opening in the wall pads, like at my middle school.

  3. We're the squad that's full of talent! Hear us cheer and watch us balance! Rah-rah, sis boom, bah!

    I can't stop laughing when the cheerleaders fell 3 times and Super Grover 2.0 fell with them 2 times!!!
