Grover is a Muppet character on the popular television show Sesame Street. He calls himself lovable, cute and furry. He is a monster who almost never uses contractions when speaking or singing.

Grover was first performed by Frank Oz. He provided the character's voice regularly from his earliest appearances until 2001. Eric Jacobson began performing Grover in 1998. He has performed the character regularly since 2002, although Oz still performs him some times.

Grover's birthday is October 14.[source?]

Initial visibility

To set the template's initial visibility, the |state= parameter may be used:

  • |state=collapsed: {{Grover|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{Grover|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{Grover|state=autocollapse}}
    • shows the template collapsed to the title bar if there is a {{navbar}}, a {{sidebar}}, or some other table on the page with the collapsible attribute
    • shows the template in its expanded state if there are no other collapsible items on the page

If the |state= parameter is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the template. For this template, that currently evaluates to autocollapse.
