Grove did not drop the F-bomb on Sesame Street! Of course, he didn’t!

As you’ll see below the Grover video, Frank Oz weighs in on the subject. We should probably take his word for it since he’s the one voicing Grover for 35+ years.

What Grover is saying in this clip is:

That sounds like an excellent idea!

However, it’s causing controversy because some people swear he’s saying:

That’s a f***ing excellent idea!

If you listen for it both ways, you can hear one or the other. There are those, though, who claim they can only hear the clean (actual) version, and those who can only hear the NSFW version.

Judge for yourself.
