  • Oscar the Grouch, in Hooper's to enjoy a cup of hot lettuce, is crowded by some letters left over after Mr. Hooper made a "SALE" sign. Mr. Hooper gives Oscar the letters--L, B, O, I, V, G, and E. Then he remembers that he was going to make the sign say "BIG SALE," and takes back the B, I, and G. This leaves Oscar with the word "LOVE" so he doesn't want the letters any more.
