He appeared in several sitcoms as a teenager, including Happy Days and Family Ties. That led to roles in Teachers (1984) and Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984).
He then worked with director Trent Harris on the third chapter of the Beaver Trilogy, entitled The Orkly Kid.
In this short film, he portrayed a small-town man who organizes a local talent show to showcase his obsession with Olivia Newton-John, much to the embarrassment of the local community.
At the climax of the film, Glover does his rendition, in full drag, of Newton-John's "Please Don't Keep Me Waiting" from her 1979 album Totally Hot.
He constructs the books by reusing old novels and other publications which have fallen into the public domain due to their age (for example, Rat Catching was constructed from an 1896 book Studies in the Art of Rat Catching, and Oak-Mot was constructed from an 1868 novel of the same title).
