I thought I'd start a thread about this sketch, listed as "Bring Your Own Can Night" on the 40th anniversary DVD, but otherwise doesn't appear to have anything to do with the title. The plot involves Oscar and Bruno going to a place called the "Cha Cha Palace". At the beginning the voices sof the adults are heard protesting to Oscar from inside his trash can as Bruno carries it, and Oscar tells them to keep quiet. Oscar tells the grouch that's selling tickets that he'll need two tickets, but then the others keep shouting at Oscar, begging him to reveal how many people are really there. Olivia eventually pulls Oscar into the trash can, and one by one each human sticks their heads out to tell the ticket taker how many people there are. As there are 8, it costs 8 dollars, which oscar doesn't have (the others should have paid their own way then). This is a very funny scene. I don't quite know whether it was part of a street story or if it was a stand-alone sketch. It looks like it could have been stand-alone, but we don't know why the cast was with Oscar in the first place (and if it was part of a bigger story then the title would have made more sense). Although I normally don't watch clips on youtube if I already have a copy, I watched this on youtube to see the comments, and one person claims to remember an episode where the cast all got locked outside in a rainstorm and seeked selter in oscar's trash can.... This doesn't seem to make much sense, but we don't know if the memories are corrct (nor do we have any evidence that it didn't). When I first saw it I thought maybe Oscar was trying to sneak everybody in, though they didn't want Oscar to lie about how many tickets were needed. Considering the ticket taker was a grouch, maybe Oscar felt he would be embarrassed beign seen with all them at a grouch establishment (he wouldn't have been embarassed beign seen with Bruno... But then again, I guesds Bruno was needed... Or Oscar could have walked with his legs sticking out). We also don't know if that was a grouch establishment... It could have just been a place that just happened to have a grouch employed there. And that grouch seems both nice for a grouch and nasty for oen at the same time. His attitude makes him seem like such a seedy character, but his line "My mommy warned me about taking the night shift" makes him appear to be a bit of a softie.
