Come on, France. Are those really the best costumes you could pull off?
French Oscar the Grouch is perfect, though. That's exactly what French Oscar the Grouch should look like.

The Quebecois one just hurt my ears, though, which is also pretty appropriate.

To be fair, early Big Bird didn't look so hot either.

You're right, that's downright awful. Big Bird looks like a 404 error page.

I kind of like France Oscar. He looks like a gracefully-aging distinguished gentleman grouch.

I think I might have caught Quebec French SESAME STREET once or twice when I was a very little kid growing up in the Montreal area, but I don't think it lasted very long.

I'm not sure what it showed, I can't find much information about it, but I presume it's a straight dub of the American segments more suitable for dubbing (i.e. nothing involving words beginning with letters that aren't the same letters used in French)plus maybe some of the bilingual or French segments from Canadian SESAME STREET oN CBC and maybe even some segments from France.

The footage in the Quebec opening is just one of the early playground openings from the American version.
