Plot Outline:

Kevin Clash stars as Elmo in this film about sharing and viewing trash differently. Elmo loses his blanket after taking it to the city laundromat and fighting with Zoe. As he chases it, Elmo enters Oscar's trashcan and accidentally opens the door to Grouchland. Following the trail of the blanket to a mysterious trashy tycoon, Huxley, (Mandy Patinkin) he is sidetracked into the realm of The Queen of Trash (Vanessa Williams) and learns that he too has been acting like Huxley sometimes. He loses his fight with Huxley when Huxley declares that both the blanket and Elmo are his now, but Elmo is saved by the rest of the Sesame Street gang and the Grouchland Grouches that Oscar is able to organize against Huxley. -- Istra

It will drive an adult crazy if there is more than one little kid around making raspberry sounds to aid Elmo in his quest in grouchland, but it is playing on children's love of making sounds. I think the sesame series is wonderful for children, but maybe I've been watching too much Elmo's World lately.

Bert and Ernie regulary stop the film at moments that may be upsetting to toddlers, which will upset adults in a different way. Bert expresses the concern of the perceived audience and Ernie explains and soothes his fears away. This means that scenes that ...
