The various puppets/costumes of Oscar the Grouch created for stage shows and public appearances, including Sesame Street Live and Sesame Place. In these appearances Oscar is portrayed as a puppet operated from inside a giant prop trash can. This puppet is larger than the real Oscar puppet, so he will not look small compared to the other Sesame Street character walk-arounds, but very often the opposite is the case. A walk-around, costumed version of Oscar debuted at Sesame Place in May 2012.
