Eric Jacobson as Grover

This page mentions that Eric Jacobson performed Grover at the ding-a-long in this epsiode, in one of his earliest performances as Grover. What's the source for this? I've only seen this episode once or twice, but as far as I can remember, Grover's voice wasn't heard in the Ding-A-Long sequence. He was just part of the background. As far as I know, Frank Oz's characters weren't officially recast (or semi-recast) until a year or two later, though they seemed to make a lot of non-speaking cameos in street scenes during this season. --Minor muppetz 05:30, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

The thing is, you're relying entirely on memory, Michael. Tony added the info. Check with him on his talk page, but he seldom if ever adds any claim without basing it on direct viewing from his tape collection. The date doesn't prove a thing one way or another. The 1999 resource video Sesame Street Goes to the Doctor featured Jacobson as Bert, and Frank Oz was already gradually becoming less involved at that point outside of major projects like the films or notable specials (and often just dubbed his voice for those). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 06:39, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I know that I'm relying on memory. I don't question that Grover wasn't performed by Frank Oz in this scene (and I'd be surprised if he was). I just question whether Eric Jacobson performed him in that scene, which as far as I remember was a non-vocal appearance. --Minor muppetz 19:02, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
The info does indeed come from my copy of the episode. -- MuppetDude 18:09, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
