Growing Up GROUCHY is a 1996 SESAME STREET Little Golden Book that tells the story of OSCAR THE GROUCHs misspent youth.

OSCAR was born on a sleety, slushy, gray day, which according to GROUCH lore is good, because, apparently, if a GROUCH is born on a SUNNY day, theyll grow up with a SUNNY outlook on life. OSCAR was named after his family saw the name on the side of a GARBAGE truck outside the nursery window.

OSCAR THE GROUCH was a smelly baby, & his favorite foods were sour-cream prune cereal & crap-apple sauce. His favorite toys were a dented trumpet, a pair of pot lids & an old drum, with which he made lots & lots of noise. His first word was "YUCCH", his second was "NO" & his 1st sentence was "Leave me alone!" His favorite stories were The Ugly Duckling & Beauty & the Beast, & he slept with his itchy blankie, a toy skunk, & SLIMEY.
