Lauren Graham and Grover. ‘Nuff said.

Share

This blog is brought to you by the letters L and G and by the number 1, presenting irrefutable evidence that Lauren Graham has finally hit the big time.  She’s the one on the left:

Grover's the blue one.  On the right.

Perhaps more prestigious than having a Hollywood star, winning gold at the Olympics and scaling Mount Everest all combined, LG joins the hallowed halls of those appearing on Sesame Street.

In her bit, she shares her love of writing and stories with the adorable Grover.  Watch and Learn:

Entertainment Weekly shares some behind-the-scenes action:

When Graham misspoke a line while shooting the segment, Grover was quick to reassure her, “It’s OK — you’re still smart and cute.”

Are you a fan of the Muppets?  Which Muppet would you like to see talking to Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore)?  Or Scott Patterson (Luke Danes)?  Ha, or Kirk?

(I didn’t think I’d make it to the end of this bit without mentioning that the Muppets haven’t really been the Muppets since May 1990 but I did it!  Oh wait, dammit.  Still missing you, Jim.)

Rich

Rich originally began contributing to GIlmore News as 'Dairyman' in 2013, a reference to the character Dairyman Dick in Tess of the D'Urbervilles, (call me Rich). Here in the UK we were late to the Gilmore party and I don't remember what made me watch my first episode - the one where Lorelai picks Rory up from the police station after she and Logan steal a yacht - but I remember watching it again immediately. And then again. Thankfully, the next show was on the next day and I watched that one three times too. And then the boat one again. I couldn't believe the dialogue was so quick and so funny and I pretended to myself that I was only watching it so I could figure out who I was more keen on - the mom or the daughter. I swore that Aaron Sorkin must have been involved but I couldn't find his name attached anywhere, even on the internet. So I watched and loved and laughed and cried and the day after the series finale, they ran the entire show from the beginning again and Rory turned into a baby so then I was all about Lorelai. Lauren Graham is astonishing ("Mother: Breathtaking") and the show was - and is - lightning in a bottle. It's a treasure for those who watch and get swept up in it, like I did and like the readers of Gilmore News. It's heartbreak and chicken soup, family dysfunction and blind optimism, lighthearted romanticism and balls-out brilliant. Thanks to Arieanna and gilmorenews.com for letting me squat and allowing my inner Gilmore Geek out for air. I worry how it would otherwise manifest.

    Miss Piggy hitting on Milo Ventimiglia could be funny.

    Not a big Muppets fan myself, but I was seriously addicted to the Muppet Babies animated series as a kid. And that Weezer video was great.

    Oh, I forgot to mention: the show included John Cleese, Peter Sellers, Vincent Price, Alice Cooper and Luke Skywalker, C-3PO and R2-D2 as guests. Hard to beat.

    Never a Sesame Street fan but picked up a bit on the muppets through the SNL volcano god skits and the show itself in the late 70’s. If one is to envision Gilmore through an overall muppet prism I can easily see:

    Kerme [the Lorelai of your choice], Oscar the grouch [Luke], the critics in the balcony [Richard and Emily], Sam the Eagle [Taylor], the Swedish Chef [too easy], Fonzi Bear [Jackson], Miss Piggy [Miss Patty] and her assistants [Babette and LuLu], Gonzo [Paris] and the cluckettes [Madeline, Louise, Janet, Lucy, Olivia, Honor], Big Bird [Morey], Dr. Hook and the band [Zack, Brian, Gil] with Animal [Lane], the Volcano god [Mitchem] and his skeezy underlings [Logan, Dean, Jess], the Professor and Beaker [Michel and Kirk], and guest stars Robert Goulet [Max] and Peter Falk [Jason].

    Miss Piggy and Dean doing a “Pigs in Space” episode with a karate match showdown could be pretty funny as well.

    I’d watch that show. No Rory casting?

    Nothing occured to me on the first post, but now for some reason the name Scotter rings a bell–
