Oscar the Grouch
Birthday: June 1

Oscar, Sesame Street’s resident Grouch, despises all things “nice” like rainbows, candy, and chocolate. Being grouchy makes him happy, but being happy makes him grouchy again. He loves loud noises, collecting junk, arguing, rainy days, and other common annoyances.  Oscar does have a soft side, as he is a caring friend to his pet worm, Slimey, his pet elephant, Fluffy, and his pet pig, Spot. Oscar’s trash can may be messy, but it’s filled with recyclable and reusable materials. Don’t tell him that he’s doing something positive and helping to take care of the planet!
