Hi there. It's me,
Alan
from
Sesame Street
and you're listening to Goodnight World. a sleep-cast where your friends at
Sesame Street
and
Headspace
Studios help you get ready for bed.

Goodnight world. Goodnight world. Goodnight world. Goodnight world. Goodnight world. Goodnight world. Goodnight world.

Super Grover
Flies High.
Share
Alan Muraoka
01:18
Hey everyone. It's me,
Alan
. It's always nice to spend time with my friends here on
Sesame Street
and, oh, listen to that. Yes, it's everybody's favorite hero.
Share
01:36
It's
Super Grover
.
Share
Super Grover
01:41
Oh dear, not again.
Share
Alan Muraoka
01:43
Are you alright?
Share
Super Grover
01:45
Oh, yes, I am fine. Lucky for me there was a big pile of leaves in the garden for me to land on. Although all of these little leaves stuck on my cape are a little, little tickly.
Share
Alan Muraoka
01:59
Well, I'm just glad you're okay. What happened?
Share
Super Grover
02:05
I think I was a little too tired from all of my super flying today to really stick the landing.
Share
Alan Muraoka
02:10
You had a busy day, huh?
Share
Super Grover
02:12
As your neighborhood super monster, I, very adorable
Super Grover
, had a very busy day. Flying around, helping people, you know the usual.
Share
Alan Muraoka
02:21
That's very kind of you to help out
Super Grover
.
Share
Super Grover
02:24
It is, isn't it? For instance, today I helped a granny carry her groceries across the street. I only found out later that perhaps she did not need to cross the street because the grocery was right next door but, she was very happy to cross right back again.
Share
Alan Muraoka
02:40
I'm sure she was. It's a nice day for a walk.
Share
Super Grover
02:43
Exactly, that is what I said, and then there was a soccer team that lost their ball in some long, tall grass by the soccer field.
Share
Alan Muraoka
02:52
You found it for them?
Share
Super Grover
02:53
Yes, and I kicked it back to them.
Share
Alan Muraoka
02:56
That was another kind thing to do.
Share
Super Grover
02:58
Only, of course, I forgot all about my super strength and it went all the way over to the other side of the field, right into the long, tall grass over there.
Share
Alan Muraoka
03:08
Oh, my goodness. Then what did you do?
Share
Super Grover
03:11
Well, I found it again of course. That is what cute, adorable superheroes do. They help people. Oh, I could go on and on about all the heroics I did today.
Share
Alan Muraoka
03:20
Wow. After such a long day, no wonder you're tired.
Share
Super Grover
03:24
I am, but a superhero's work is never done so, nice talking to you
Alan
but I am off to do more kind things for our neighbors. See you later.
Share
Alan Muraoka
03:34
Thanks for stopping by.
Share
Super Grover
03:35
Yes, well, I am off.
Share
03:42
Oh dear!
Share
Alan Muraoka
03:44
What's wrong Grover?
Share
Super Grover
03:46
I do not seem to have my usual super get up and go, I mean my usual get up and fly. I wonder why that is,
Alan
?
Share
Alan Muraoka
03:55
I think I can guess.
Share
Super Grover
03:57
Oh, I know what you will say, what a wonderful idea
Alan
. You think I just need a little more practice?
Share
Alan Muraoka
04:03
Well, no
Super Grover
I-
Share
Super Grover
04:06
Alan
, you are right. That is exactly what I need. I will just try it again, because as you know
Alan
, practice means to try something over and over so that you can learn and get better at doing it.
Share
Alan Muraoka
04:19
Yes, I know
Super Grover
, but-
Share
Super Grover
04:21
Oh yes, I am sure I will be able to do it after just one more try.
Share
Alan Muraoka
04:27
How can I help?
Share
Super Grover
04:28
Thank you
Alan
, but I think I've got it. I wonder, maybe if I just take a bit of a running start.
Alan
, please step back, I do not want to blow you away with my super launching speed.
Share
04:43
Here I go! I'm going to do it. I'm going to do it. I am going to, lie down on the ground. Oh.
Alan
, why can I not fly? Oh!
Share
Alan Muraoka
05:01
That was a great try
Super Grover
. I thought that you worked really hard at it, but I think the reason you can't fly right now is because you're tired.
Share
Super Grover
05:10
I'm sorry, what?
Share
Alan Muraoka
05:11
You had such a busy day, it might be time to take a rest.
Share
Super Grover
05:15
But I,
Super Grover
, will never give up. As long as there is anyone waiting to be rescued by superheroes, I,
Super Grover
, will continue to be super. Now, could you please just help me up? Thank you.
Share
Alan Muraoka
05:30
Taking a break isn't giving up, it's just resting up so you can have energy for another busy day.
Share
Super Grover
05:37
Oh, I see. I suppose even superheroes need super sleep, and it is almost a super monster's bedtime.
Share
Alan Muraoka
05:46
Right, you can do some more helping out tomorrow.
Share
Super Grover
05:50
Maybe you are right, but I do wish I could be flying at least.
Share
Alan Muraoka
05:55
Now that I can definitely help with, because I know a way we could both fly, right now, like you said.
Share
Super Grover
06:02
How,
Alan
? Oh, please tell me how, because I am feeling just a little frustrated right now.
Share
Alan Muraoka
06:09
But you can fly any time, in your imagination, and we can do it together.
Share
Super Grover
06:16
Well, I would certainly like that, because there is nothing we super monsters like more than drifting up there, among the clouds, in and out of all the fun, fluffy shapes they make. Nothing except one thing.
Share
Alan Muraoka
06:34
What's that
Super Grover
?
Share
Super Grover
06:36
Flying, with a friend.
Share
Alan Muraoka
06:38
Oh, me too. Ahh!
Share
06:50
I know you've been frustrated today and also excited,
Super Grover
, and proud of all the kind things you did in your busy day too. That's a lot of very big feelings, so before we start imagining, let's calm those big feelings down a little. Let's try this.
Share
07:09
Let's use our imaginations to picture something else that can fly, like bubbles.
Share
Super Grover
07:17
Ooh, bubbles. I like to blow bubbles.
Share
Alan Muraoka
07:22
Great, let's close our eyes and imagine, we're blowing a perfect round bubble. First, let's breathe in slowly through our noses, then slowly breathe out through our mouths. In our imaginations, let's watch the bubble float up, in the air, up, up and away.
Share
Super Grover
07:57
Oh, that was a beautiful little bubble.
Share
Alan Muraoka
08:01
Let's do it again. Breathe in through our noses, then slowly breathe out through our mouths.
Share
Super Grover
08:13
Alan
, I do not want to open my eyes. is it okay if I keep them closed just a little bit longer?
Share
Alan Muraoka
08:22
Well, of course, but why is that
Super Grover
?
Share
Super Grover
08:26
Because my bubble is almost as high as the clouds now and flying up there, ah, that is a very nice place to be I think.
Share
Alan Muraoka
08:39
I think so too,
Super Grover
. A very nice place to be with a friend.

Imagine a blue night sky filled with fluffy clouds. There are big clouds and little clouds, clouds in the shapes of flowers drifting in the breeze and clouds and the shapes of boats bobbing in the blue sky.
Share
09:37
Now imagine that you are flying on one of these clouds up, up, up into the sky with
Super Grover
by your side.
Share
Super Grover
09:55
Ah.
Share
Bryan Sparkman
09:57
Imagine that your cloud it's so, so soft, like a pillow.
Super Grover
wiggles to get comfortable as he sits on the cloud. His superhero cape is spread around him like a warm blanket. His hero helmet shines brightly in the moonlight. There's plenty of room for both of you, so snuggle in.
Share
10:38
You look out across the sky from your cozy cloud. More clouds float towards you, and these clouds look just like animals.
Super Grover
points to one of these clouds. You look in the direction he's pointing and see a cloud in the shape of a kitten. The cloud kitten is all curled up for a nap. It has two pointy little ears and a long, furry tail that wraps around its fluffy cloud body.
Share
11:33
The breeze moves the cloud just a little, so it looks like the cloud kitten is even wagging its tail, just a little, as if dreaming of a mouse. The breeze blows and the clouds move slowly through the sky. The wind wish wishes around your cloud.
Share
12:08
Super Grover's
cape lifts in the breeze. The moon is shining brightly above him in a sky filled with stars, and there, floating towards you is a cloud in the shape of a little deer. The cloud deer looks so peaceful. The little cloud deer moves along slowly on her cloud bed.
Share
12:46
The cloud deer looks so peaceful, curled up on its cloud, floating across the sky. The breeze blows gently and the cloud deer seems to nod sleepily, as the clouds drift away. It's bedtime for little cloud deer.
Share
13:15
Your cloud floats on and on. Up ahead there are mountains and there are soft gray rain clouds floating nearby. Now gentle rain falls from the clouds down onto the mountain top. It lasts only a little while, then the rain stops as the gray clouds float away.
Share
13:56
Soon you come upon a cloud in the shape of a fox with a big bushy tail. The cloud fox floats across the sky. The breeze blows and the paws of the cloud fox seem to move, and it seems to be running. The cloud fox floats and seems to run across the nighttime sky. This bushy tail seems to swish and swish as the cloud floats by. Then the wind wishes again, and with that, the cloud fox floats higher up into the sky and is gone from sight.
Share
14:58
The breeze picks up. A shooting star flies by, near a cloud that looks just like a cuddly bunny rabbit, all puffy with fur. When the wind puffs, the cloud bunny seems to bounce and its puffy tail seems to wiggle, wiggling in the air, then the cloud bunny drifts away across the sky.
Share
15:41
More clouds float slowly by. They look like so many things. Fluffy animals, an ice cream cone, a giant leaf.
Share
15:58
The night sky is so calm now.
Super Grover
yawns, it's time for all friendly superheroes to fly home.
Share
16:13
As you sit, so comfy on your cloud,
Super Grover
hops on a smaller cloud drifting by and floats back down to
Sesame Street
to get ready for bed.
Share
Super Grover
16:33
Nighty night.

I The bright stars go on winking like tiny night lights in the sky as
Super Grover
grows smaller and smaller waving Good night.
