    Sesame Street [#4260H] Observe, Record, Annoy Oscar is taking a computer class in Grouchology where the golden rule is to observe, record, and annoy. The first question that he must investigate is "What do worms like to squirm on best?" Professor Messla tells him he must set up an experiment where he observes (watches closely and carefully), records (writes down what he discovers), and annoy someone while he is doing it. Oscar heads over to Hooper's where he pours coffee grinds and olive oil all over Alan's nice clean counter. He observes the worms in the mess, and marks down what he sees on his chart. He succeeds in annoying Alan, and concludes that most of the worms like to squirm in the olive oil. The second question to investigate is "What stinky smell will make people scram?" He finds Gina and Leela playing cards and tries to make them scram with garlic, an old piece of cheese, and finally his own stinky socks. He observes, records and annoys them both as they finally flee holding their noses from his smelly socks. Oscar's final question is "What noise is loud enough to wake up Luis and Maria?" He blasts a vuvuzela horn and observes and records that it wakes up Maria, but not Luis. As she shouts at Oscar to let her get some sleep, Luis wakes up from her yelling. Oscar concludes Maria's shrill screaming is the loudest noise of all. He reports what he discovered in each experiment to Professor Messla and collects his stinky diploma in Grouchology. Now it's time for a loud, annoying party. duration 58:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)
