2648 d
OSCAR THE GROUCH & Bob just getting to

DEBUT 1989

GROUCHYtown is apparently, the home of OSCAR THE GROUCH, & is also the complete opposite of SESAME STREET. GROUCHYtown is 1st shown in EPISODE 2648 (& then once again in EPISODE 2899) of SESAME STREET, in which OSCAR takes Bob there. Luis & Linda warn Bob about going, but he prefers to be open-minded & see how GROUCHES live.

GROUCH CommerceEdit

GROUCHYtown, like SESAME STREET, has several different facilities, most of which are opposites of SESAME STREET's known facilities. Some examples are, the Break-It Shop, where GROUCHES go to get their things broken, instead of fixed, the opposite of the Fix-it Shop on SESAME STREET. Another is Worbys Store, the clear opposite of Hoopers Store. The special for that day was a sardine-blueberry sandwich, a pepper-marshmallow steak & a tomato surprise (which they're out of). Bob doesnt want to eat anything at first, but OSCAR reminds him that trying new foods is a part of the traveling experience. Bob, to everyone's surprise, likes the sardine-blueberry sandwich when he tries it! OSCAR reassures a distraught WORBY, "He's only a tourist here; he doesn't know any better."

GROUCHYtown residentsEdit

While most residents of GROUCHYtow are GROUCHES, apparently, there is 1 nice resident named "Nina the Nice" (played by actress Carol Kane). By the end of the tour it quickly dawns on Bob that the nice-human/GROUCH ratio there is just the opposite of SESAME STREETs.

Back on SESAME STREET, Luis & Linda are surprised to hear Bobs excitable yarn of his visit to GROUCHYtown. OSCAR laments hell NEVER be able to go there again.
