  PAM ARCIERO (Muppeteer)
DEBUT 2007

Sleeping GROUCHY appears in SESAME STREET EPISODE 4143. Sleeping GROUCHY is played by GRUNDGETTA, which spoofs Sleeping Beauty from the fairy tale of the same name.

In The Tale of Sleeping GROUCHY, 1 day the GROUCHY princess on a GROUCHY walk. She says "Phooey!" so many times that it disturbs a wizard who was walking nearby. He casts a spell on her, putting her to sleep for 100 years! Sleeping GROUCHYs parents encounter her sleeping, & become distressed that their daughter is under a spell. The queen gets an idea to offer a big reward for whoever can break the spell.

The 1st prince to arrive is Prince Elmo of Ticklania, who will try waking her up with a giant Ticklanian chicken feather. He demonstrates its effects on the King & Queen, then tries it on the princess, not realizing that shes too GROUCHY to be ticklish - but the feather does make her sneeze. Prince Elmo knows exactly what to do to cheer himself up...

The second prince to arrive is Prince Telly of the Tuba, & his back-up band, The Cats Meow. Since they woke up Rip Van Winkle by playing the tuba & meowing loudly, they figure itll be a cinch to wake the princess up the same way. But such is not the case, not even w/ the viewers' participation.

The third prince doesnt show up at first, but is revealed to be Prince SLIMEY. But how can a small WORM prince break the spell? Prince SLIMEY was small but he knew about GROUCHES & he knew that by giving the princess a sweet, lovable kiss, which he knows shell hate, shell awaken. It works!

In return for his heroic deed, Prince SLIMEY wants not jewels, but MUD. He & Princess GROUCHY go off to play in the Royal MUD Puddle & live GROUCHILY ever after.
