Did You Know? Oscar the Grouch is a trashcan-dwelling monster which is why his grimy green color seems to fit so well. But it turns out that during the first season of the show, the angry short-tempered character was actually completely orange. According to the Smithsonian, “Jim Henson’s original drawings for Oscar the Grouch show him as purple in color, but he evolved to be orange in the first episodes of Sesame Street. By 1970, Oscar the Grouch was the green color he is today. Oscar explained that this change was due to his vacation at Swamp Mushy Muddy where it was so damp that he became covered in slime and mold.”
