After a fateful game of tug o'war with Zoe, Elmo must travel through Grouchland to save his blanket, which has fallen through the portal in Oscar's trashcan. As he makes his rescue attempt, he receives guidance from the Queen of Trash, meets numerous grouchy characters, and learns important lessons about the value of friendship. As he ventures through stinky trash, argues with grumpy monsters, and battles with the villain Huxley, he realizes that he was unkind to Zoe and selfish with his possessions. Through this child-friendly morality tale, kids learn about sharing, friendship, and how important it is to be kind to others.
