|The season 12 cast with THE SLOPPY JALOPY.|
THE SLOPPY JALOPY is OSCAR THE GROUCH’s junk car featured on SESAME STREET. The car has a sign painted on the side: "OSCAR’s Taxi Service: Ride At Your Own Risk". The car was seen on the show as early as season 12.
This car is also featured in the 1997 video Fiesta!, where it was being used as a carosa (float) by the kids to replace Rosita’s broken float. Elmo thought a fairy godmother transformed his pineapple into this SLOPPY JALOPY as the float for the kids.

Another car was featured in Follow That BIRD with a different look & vehicle make. since his horn is broken, OSCAR has a Honker in the backseat to fill that function. A ragged umbrella covers the back area & a "BIG BIRD or Bust!" sign is hand painted in a ragged scrawl. The license plate reads, "SCRAM".
