During the 1969 season of Sesame Street, Oscar the Grouch was orange. Orange Oscar only lasted one season before he became the green Oscar we all know and love. The clip below shows an orange Oscar singing “I Love Trash.”
If you want to know why Oscar’s color changed, there are numerous explanations, such as he would not be such a light color if he lived in garbage or the puppet was not comfortable. My favorite explanation is a variation on the former and comes from the YouTube comments section.
In December 1987, David Letterman parodied old Christmas special’s on Late Night by turning the show into Dave Letterman’s Old-Fashioned Christmas. During the show, Dave “sang” with Ted Nugent. It’s a shame Dave doesn’t sing more often, since he has an amazing voice.
Please do not turn the comment section into a political debate.
