PERFORMER Jerry Nelson
DEBUT 2000

Felix the Grouch is an old friend who visits Oscar in a 2000 episode of Sesame Street. Oscar is disappointed to learn that his friend Felix has become a neat freak, and he worries that he isn't a real Grouch anymore. However, they argue so much that Oscar realizes that Felix is just as grouchy as ever.

The character of Felix and his relationship with Oscar spoof the 1965 Neil Simon play The Odd Couple (and subsequent film and TV versions), centering on neat Felix and messy Oscar.
