An Oscar the Grouch talking alarm clock is a novelty alarm clock featuring the Sesame Street puppet character Oscar the Grouch. It was manufactured in 1977, and features an upturned garbage can with a clock face on the botoom alongside another containing Oscar. When the alarm activates he emerges from the can and says:

“Ring! Ring! Hey, get up! This is Oscar the Grouch, and I say it's time to wake up. It's going to be another grouchy day! So get up! And don't forget to wind the clock so I can wake you up again tomorrow!”

Prices can range from around $20-$30 for a non-working example to more than $100 for a working clock in good condition.
