Oscar the Grouch and friends on Sesame Street.

Sesame Street is 40!, and they called WOSU to talk to Christopher Purdy to chat.

Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch talked to Christopher, and Bob McGrath joined the interview to answer questions about working on Sesame Street the television show.

Included is an impromtu song from Oscar the Grouch:
Oh, I love trash!
Anything dirty or dingy or dusty
Anything ragged or rotten or rusty
Yes, I love trash

    I loved listening to this! “Sing, Sing a Song” is one of my favorites. Most of my favorite childhood memories involve Sesame Street – Happy 40th Anniversary!

    Yay, Sesame Street!! We are, indeed, big fans of all the Sesame Streeters. Thank you for bringing all of them to Columbus, Christopher!

    Great interview Christopher. You can tell you’ve enjoyed the Sesame Street Kool-aid for a long time.

    I’m amazed that the comparison between Mr. Purdy and Oscar the Grouch hasn’t been made. Until now.
