"Doin' the Grouch" is a dance Celina learned from Gene Smelly. She performs it with the kids & the Grouchketeers in her dance studio. The 1st time this dance was performed, Celina taught the Grouchketeers how to do the dance while Oscar the Grouch watched. At the very end Oscar was very impressed at how well Celina knew how to do "Doin the Grouch."
The 2nd time this dance was performed was on the Sesame Street home video "Get Up & Dance". Big Bird wanted to have a dance birthday party for his beloved teddy bear Radar, so he & several kids including Gabi & Lexine went to Celina's dance studio & Celina agreed to use her studio as the party headquarters.
They danced several fun dances, including "A Very Simple Dance", "I'm a Little Airplane", "The Birdland Jump", "Do the Dog", "Do the Jelly" & "A Cat Had a Birthday". Then, suddenly, Oscar called from his newsstand demanding Celina to stop the happy dancing. Celina makes Oscar a deal & she teaches Big Bird & the kids to do the "Doin the Grouch" dance. Right after the dance, Oscar calls again & he says "Now that was more like it!"
