    If anyone tuned into Jimmy Kimmel following the Oscars last night then you may have been able to catch our "Osacar" in surprising but ironic way...:grouchy:

    I saw the clip on youtube. While the joke's concept was cute and all, what appeared in the clip didn't seem to 100% click. I say that because there was something about Oscar's character that didn't seem to work-- it's like he wasn't his typical grouchy self when he said 'Snuffy, is that you?'

    What I think what would make it stronger if it went along the lines of this:

    Kimmel: 'Finally! I'm about to get my own oscar.'

    [opens the bag, just as Oscar the Grouch pops up]

    Oscar: 'You got one alright. Hope you don't mind it, grouch-style. he he he.'

    You know what I mean?

    I think the reason for this was that it was a last mintue thing and that Carrol was tuning in Big Bird's character and not Oscar for the sketch. :grouchy:

    Yeah. That's what concerns me-- I hope Mr. Spinney's not losing his magic touch. :(

    It's definitely something the writers gave him; nothing to do with Carroll
