Oscar and Grundgetta at Oscar's trash can.

thumb|300px|right|Brian Muehl performs Grundgetta in "Ol' Number Nine."

Grundgetta is Oscar's Grouch girlfriend on Sesame Street (EKA: Episode 1736). Oscar occasionally calls her Grungie, while she generally calls him Oskie. She and Oscar, in addition to being a "couple", are also best friends.

Like Oscar, Grundgetta has had a number of pets over the years, including her worm Sylvia, a rottendoodle named Itchy and a muddy piglet who won the Yucchiest Pet contest in Oscar's Grouch Jamboree.


The spelling of the character's name has varied over the years, alternating between "Grundgetta" and "Grungetta."

The spelling "Grundgetta" appears in the storybooks, including Oscar's Grouch Jamboree, the albums Oscar's Trashy Songs and Let's Be Friends, and the Applause plush doll. Current Sesame Workshop press kits list the character as "Grundgetta," as does an internal CTW document from 1994. As of January 18, 2008, typing "Grundgetta" in the search engine on the Sesame Street Video Player gives results, while typing "Grungetta" doesn't show any results. However, results can be found for either spelling at sesamestreet.org.

However, the Sesame Street Unpaved book, the "Sesame Street 35 Years Anniversary Game" and the book Elmo's Delicious Christmas refer to the character as "Grungetta." A Sesame Workshop press kit from 1984 uses "Grungetta," as do the Sesame Family Newsletters from the early 2000s. For more on this question, see the talk page.
