Actually, if you really know Oscar from Sesame Street, you understand that, just because he’s grouchy, it doesn’t mean he’s evil. Truthfully, he has a heart of gold; he really would rather people didn’t know it. But here’s an unusual Ernie and Oscar sketch from Sesame Street, in which Oscar is seen to be genuinely compassionate.
I also don’t see how Jim Henson(Ernie) and Carroll Spinney(Oscar)kept from dying laughing when Ernie goes into his melodramatic crying spells.:)
Also, note how “fluffy” Oscar is here. The Oscar puppet has been rebuilt several times, and this might have been the third incarnation. I do know for sure that the piece of fur that forms Oscar’s unibrow is still always the original piece from the very first puppet.
