D is for "dust", & Oscar dusts his furniture -- by dumping dust on to his bed & nightstand.
E is for "eggshells", which Oscar puts into his bed at night "to get a crummy night's sleep".
G is for "garbage", & the Garbage Grouch arrives with Oscar's weekly supply.
N is for a "no-good necktie", which helped Oscar win the "Worst-Dressed Grouch of the Year" award.
P is for "patched-up porcupine": "Some people sleep with teddy bears, but I prefer a porcupine because it's so prickly."
V is for "violin": "I love to play the Grouch Sonata late at night", which he does on his screechy old fiddle, resulting in people tossing garbage at him to stop the noise.
W is for "worm", & Oscar presents his pet, Slimey.
