Oscar

In the phonetic alphabet, Oscar represents the letter O. Oscar is also a masculine name meaning, divine spear. Who would’ve guessed that?

Today we’ll keep it short and sweet and I’ll just give you my favorite Oscar. I was admittedly a little older when Sesame Street first arrived but my younger siblings LOVED and grew up with Sesame Street so I became well-acquainted with the characters. I always really liked Oscar the Grouch.


Who was your favorite Sesame Street Character?

  1. I'm an Oscar fan too. My favorite Sesame Street character is either him or Grover.

  8. Wow. So many Oscar lovers. I wonder what Oscar would say,
    "Blechhh!"

  9. It came out when I was still young enough to watch, so I have many memories of the show.

  10. I love Oscar, but I think my favorite is Cookie Monster. ("C is for cookie, that's good enough for me...") Our daughter was a huge Muppets fan, so I got to watch a lot of them when she was growing up. Now, as a sideline, she makes puppets for the Atlanta Center for Puppetry Arts, and she STILL loves the Muppets.
