  • NARRATOR: He observes.

  • GROVER: Oh, look.

  • No.

  • No.

  • [SCREAMING]

  • NARRATOR: He questions.

  • GROVER: [GIBBERISH]

  • NARRATOR: He investigates.

  • GROVER: Hmm, what does this button do?

  • [SCREAMING]

  • NARRATOR: Super Grover 2.0.

  • He shows up.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • NARRATOR: Somewhere on a raft in the Louisiana bayou,

  • two little piggies are up a creek in more ways than one.

  • PIG: This little piggie went to market.

  • PIG: Then it's time to go wee, wee, wee all the way home.

  • PIG: Yeah.

  • Good thing we little piggies have the wind in our sail.

  • PIGS: Wee!

  • Wee!

  • Whoa!

  • PIG: What happened?

  • PIG: This little piggie's raft isn't moving.

  • PIG: This little piggie thinks the wind stopped blowing.

  • PIG: Oh, this little piggie's up the creek.

  • [CRYING]

  • PIG: What's that?

  • [SCREAMING]

  • PIGS: Super Grover 2.0!

  • Y'all showed up!

  • GROVER: It is what I all do.

  • Now, little piggies, what are you all doing up the creek?

  • PIG: We little piggies are going nowhere fast.

  • [CRYING]

  • GROVER: Whoa, whoa, whoa.

  • Why are you squealing like a stuck pig?

  • PIG: Because we are stuck pigs.

  • PIG: We little piggies have no wind in our sail.

  • [CRYING]

  • GROVER: Do not cry, little piggies.

  • I, Super Grover 2.0 can put the wind back in your sail.

  • PIG: Well, this little piggie wants to know how.

  • PIG: Uh-huh.

  • GROVER: Simple.

  • I will unleash the power of super breath.

  • PIG: OK.

  • [BLOWING]

  • [GROANING]

  • PIGGIES: Oh!

  • Our sail!

  • PIG: It's gone with the wind.

  • PIG: Oh.

  • This little piggie has a question.

  • How do y'all move a raft without a sail?

  • GROVER: Do not fret, little piggies.

  • I will unleash the power of observation.

  • Mhm.

  • Mhm.

  • I observe that you are up the creek without something

  • to be up the creek with.

  • PIG: Aw.

  • Now this little piggie can't go wee, wee, wee all the way home.

  • GROVER: Then I, Super Grover 2.0,

  • will unleash the power of investigation.

  • I will try and push your raft down the creek

  • with my super muscles.

  • [LAUGHING]

  • Preparing to de-raft.

  • Whoa.

  • Oh.

  • Thank goodness for my super water wings.

  • [LAUGHING]

  • [GROANING]

  • This raft is heavier than I thought.

  • Somebody's been living high on the hog.

  • PIG: Ah.

  • I told you not to eat so much roast beef.

  • PIG: Hey.

  • GROVER: Never mind.

  • I will try pulling the raft.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • [PANTING]

  • [GRUNTING]

  • It is like pulling pork.

  • [GROANING]

  • This superhero is soaked.

  • But I am not washed up.

  • [LAUGHING]

  • I will unleash the power of observation yet again.

  • Unleash!

  • But how can I see with all this water in the way?

  • Out of the way, water.

  • PIG: Hey.

  • This little piggie saw the raft move a little.

  • PIG: This little piggie wonders if Super Grover

  • is making it move with his hands.

  • PIG: Mhm.

  • GROVER: Hm.

  • Let us find out.

  • [SPLASHING]

  • Yes.

  • It seems I am moving it with my hands.

  • It is now time to unleash the power of technology.

  • I'm sure I have a tool here somewhere.

  • A-ha!

  • I will push the water out of the way with this.

  • Ha ha.

  • PIG: In a pig's eye, you will.

  • The tennis racquet has holes in it.

  • PIG: The water's going through the holes.

  • PIG: This little piggie thinks we need something

  • without holes.

  • GROVER: Well then.

  • This little superhero will look for another tool

  • without any holes in it.

  • Hm.

  • What's this?

  • PIG: That's it.

  • That paddle will move the boat.

  • GROVER: Well, of course it will.

  • Yeah.

  • It does not seem to be working.

  • The raft is not moving.

  • PIG: This little piggie will show you how it works.

  • GROVER: Hm?

  • PIG: See.

  • This here is a lever.

  • GROVER: Yes.

  • A lever.

  • And you thought it was a paddle.

  • Ha.

  • Ha.

  • PIG: A paddle is a lever, Super Grover.

  • PIG: Yeah.

  • See?

  • The paddle pivots on my hoof.

  • This little lever goes pivot, pivot, pivot.

  • GROVER: Huh.

  • The raft is moving.

  • PIG: Yes, sirree.

  • The paddle practically does the work for you.

  • PIG: Now we can go wee, wee, wee all the way home.

  • PIGS: Wee.

  • Wee.

  • Wee.

  • [SCREAMING]

  • NARRATOR: And so our superhero learned

  • that a paddle is a lever, and a lever helps get work done.

  • GROVER: Piggies!

  • Piggies!

  • Now it looks like I am up the creek without something

  • to be up the creek with.

  • Piggies!

  • Wait for me!

  • NARRATOR: Today's story begins somewhere on the streets

  • of Metro City where little Judy Finstermocker

  • is about to face an ordeal.

  • JUDY: Oh, dear.

  • Oh, now what am I going to do?

NARRATOR: He observes.
