Anything Ragged Or Rotten Or Rusty

Since when did Oscar The Grouch fall out of favor with the young ones? I have long been an Elmo fan (before it was cool, thanks to much younger siblings), but I've also always had a fondness for the grumpy guy in the garbage can. And his pet worm Slimey too, of course.

We've only been to three stores total, but neither E nor I could find any sort of Oscar merchandise. What's up with that? When there were Sesame Street products at all, it seems the only characters available are Elmo, Ernie, Cookie Monster, and sometimes Big Bird. Not only is Oscar missing, but what about Bert and Grover and Telly and Snuffy and even Zoe? The Count?

So, who is/was your favorite character(s) from Sesame Street. I'm sure many of you had one or some as kids and maybe different ones as parents.

Absolutely Grover. I still have a Grover puppet from when I was a kid.

Grover, especially when he was a waiter who drove that guy with the mustache crazy. Cookie Monster. Slimy, especially with the Worm Scouts. That family of bugs that lived in Ernie's window flower box.

I'm a Oscar the Grouch and the Count fan but Grover was the tops too.


"ONE (HA AH AH), TWO (HA AH AH), THREE (HA AH AH). THERE ARE THREE BATS!"

Ooooh, did anyone have the book "The Monster at the End of This Book" with Grover in it? Such a great book, especially when my mom would do a great Grover voice.

Oscar's a dirty motherf*er.

Popped over from Thirty-Something Bloggers. I liked Grover & Kermit & Cookie Monster. Also liked the aliens (yip-yip-yip-yip uh-huh uh-huh). My favorite all-time scene though was Bert & Ernie fishing. Heeeeeeeeere fishy fishy fishy!

I heart Animal.

I remember a few years ago that the Snuffalogus (I'm sure I'm spelling this incorrectly) was no longer imaginary. Where is the fun in that??
