Happy Birthday Oscar! 

Oscar and many of his Sesame Street friends are turning 40.

Kermit the Frog says it isn’t easy being green, but Oscar the Grouch never had a problem with it. Way before it was cool and trendy; Oscar was living green, turning trash into treasure by reclaiming and recycling. I think he was just grouchy because it took so long for everybody else to get it. We’re with you now Oscar!

 I don’t ever recall seeing the inside of Oscar’s garbage-can home. Not sure PBS ever showed us. It has been speculated that he has a swimming pool, ice-skating rink and a bowling alley down there. I bet Oscar’s pad is gorgeous and ultra plush too — filled with vintage treasures, colorful mosaics and earth-friendly furnishings.

 In honor of Oscar’s big four-oh, add a little green to your home. For earth-friendly ideas, go to our sister blog – Ecologue. If it’s the color green you so desire, take a look at this photo gallery of cozy and sophisticated greens. And, don’t forget about HGTV’s Green Home giveaway – only a few days left to enter!

    Aww, Oscar was always my favorite. There was always a party going on in his can! I just found this blog via Margot Potter. I'll be subscribing.

    When I was little, it seemed that Oscar was the party pooper. As an adult, I became one with Oscar as the party pooper too. My family was bored with hearing how we need to be green. Finally they've gotten the message. GO OSCAR!
