Happy Birthday Oscar!
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.
