Today is National Do-a-Grouch-a-Favor Day. (Yes, they truly have a day for everything.)
Our favorite grouch is none other than Oscar, and you can lend him a hand by borrowing some of our Sesame Street books, videos, and albums.
You can watch Oscar in The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland or Fairy Tale Fun when Abby tries to kiss him and turn him into a prince. Or sing along with “I Love Trash” in Sesame Street: Old School Vol. 1. You can also meet the puppeteer behind Oscar, Caroll Spinney, in the documentary I Am Big Bird. (Yes, Oscar’s growl and Big Bird’s chirp come from the same guy.)
And, of course, we have dozens of Sesame Street books starring Oscar and his neighbors.
So do a Grouch a favor and check him out. He might not be happy about it, but you will be.
