The long-lasting appeal of Oscar the Grouch

adminOctober 18, 2018




Everyone loves the kind and sweet Big Bird, but the other character of Caroll Spinney, the famous grump, who lives in the trash can, Oscar the Grouch, also has a hot fan club.

He hates talking to people, complains all the time and treasures an old fish wrapped in a newspaper and his pet, Slimey the Worm.

But the rough nature of Oscar and his dirty and matted green fur make him more attractive to his admirers. And with her constant kvetching, she offers children lessons on how to handle conflicts or negative emotions, such as discomfort or anger.

Oscar was one of the original residents of "Sesame Street" when the show first aired on November 10, 1969. Spinney, the puppeteer who announced his retirement on Wednesday, played with Oscar, as well as with Big Bird.
