Oscar the Grouch: Time Lord? Tardis thief? Or simple winner of the "most livable trash can" design ever?|
I come down on the side of time lord. I've seen him walking his trash can around (feet coming out the bottom), and also seen evidence of substantial living space within it. This argues in favor of the chameleon circuits shifting the position of the doorway. And what could make a person so grumpy on a magical, safe space like Sesame Street? Well - probably that he's caught there, unable to investigate the goings on in the surrounding universe, and unable to talk to anyone about anything truly important to him.
(Oh, sure, he helps in the teaching of letters, numbers, reading, and how to get along in the great big world full of different people. Those are important, to him and to all - but there are always things that matter to an individual, like the fundamental nature of the universe, the mutability of history (and why it doesn't paradoxically close off time travel), and why chameleon circuits always get stuck in embarrassing configurations.)
