Remembering Oscar the Grouch Celebrating Waste Reduction Week in Canada

The legendary puppeteer behind beloved Sesame Street characters Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch, died on Sunday, December 8 2019, at age 85.

We had the pleasure of working with Carroll Spinney for two consecutive Waste Reduction Week in Canada campaigns in the early 2000s.

What was most striking about Carroll, in addition to natural warmth and charm, was his enduring passion of being Oscar even after 50 years of work. He was incredibly keen to helping out our campaign, and it was an honour to have him lend his voice and personality to our campaign.

Thanks, Carroll.
