The various puppets/costumes used for OSCAR THE GROUCH created for various stage shows & public appearances. The puppets used for SESAME STREET Live & SESAME Place & are much heavier & larger than the real OSCAR THE GROUCH puppet used on SESAME STREET. The OSCAR puppet is heavier & larger so the puppet wont look small compared to the SESAME STREET walk-around costumes used for various different productions. Also, being a walk-around character, OSCAR can walk around in his TRASH CAN with his legs sticking out from the bottom. Its also very rare that they should have walk-around versions of OSCAR THE GROUCH.

The full-bodied walk-around debuted in 2012. In stage shows, OSCAR is performed to a vocal track by CAROLL SPINNEY (or in the case of international appearances, the person who dubs OSCARs voice in that country).

Like all the other SESAME STREET walk-around characters OSCAR was originally designed & fabricated by the Muppet Workshop, who eventually handed these duties over to VEE Corporation.
