DEBUT 1989

Preposterous with Oscar's other pets in Sesame Street Visits the Firehouse.

Preposterous is Oscar's puppy who appeared on Sesame Street from season 20 through season 25. He is a groucher spaniel -- a Grouch dog breed. Oscar first adopts the puppy in Episode 2577.

Preposterous just lies around and doesn't do anything; he doesn't like to bark or play. Sometimes he would even attack Oscar.

The dog previously various scenes in Follow That Bird and the View-Master Interactive Vision video, Let's Play School, as a pet of one of the Grouchketeers and named Junkyard. The puppet also appeared in The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland. The puppet was later modified into Oscar's pet cat, Fido, in "Elmo's World: Cats."
