Oscar's Mom
Mrs. Grouch phone call

MRS. GROUCH is, of course, the legendary OSCAR THE GROUCHs equally GROUCHY, UNpleasant & extremely ROTTEN mother. She is also the mother of OSCARs brothers ERNEST & OTTO & OSCARs sister BUNNY. She visits SESAME STREET various times over the years, including EPISODE 3023 to make sure that her SON is still as GROUCHY as she knows he is & hasnt actually been turned nice. In that same year, she also appeared in the special SESAME STREET Stays Up Late communicating by phone with her SON & other relatives. Although normally performed by MARTY ROBINSON, in her most recent visit to SESAME STREET, she was played by LESLIE CARRARA-RUDOLPH instead. Whether she is the daughter of GRANDPA GROUCH or GRANNY GROUCH is UNknown.

MRS. GROUCH lives in Illinois. OSCAR remembers her gift of a tattered sneaker to him as a baby fondly enough to sing about it in "I LOVE TRASH", or his signature, most famous song ever. Her name is also mentioned in SESAME STREET Magazine issue 249 (from November 1995). Also, whether she is a widow or simply divorced from OSCARs father is UNknown.

According to a talk show appearance on Canadian radio, OSCARs FATHER is from St. Davids Ridge, New Brunswick & his MOTHER grew up in Nova Scotia. St. Davids is near Moores Mills, New Brunswick, a community also mentioned in the appearance. That is a reference to CAROLL SPINNEYs real-life parents.

A running gag between MRS. GROUCH & OSCAR is that whenever OSCAR would say "please", she would wash his mouth out with vanilla ice cream, which is almost like washing ones mouth out with soap when someone says a bad word.
