"Grouches in the South of France" is a Sesame Street song from a season 20 episode.

Grundgetta is getting voice lessons from Trasha (a Grouchy fish seller played by Tracey Ullman) and learning how to speak Grouchier. Trasha recalls how her voice became that way - she received lessons from Professor Piggins (played by a Cockney Oscar), who sings the song to her.

The song parodies "The Rain in Spain" from My Fair Lady, which was later parodied as "The Pig is Big" in a 2004 episode.
