Oscar, or Oscar the Polish Caterer, is a minor character in VeggieTales.


Oscar is a Polish gourd who works as a cook and caterer and owns a deli. He is first mentioned by Larry the Cucumber in the Silly Song I Love My Lips, who taught Larry the Polish word for lip (usta).

He is the caterer to Bob's Christmas party in the VeggieTales CD, A Very Veggie Christmas, and sings a song about all twelve of the Polish dishes he was serving (a parody of The Twelve Days of Christmas).

Oscar's first actual appearance was in the Silly Song The Blues With Larry in Duke and the Great Pie War when he sang the Polka with Larry at the end of the song. Afterwards, Oscar has several minor roles and cameo appearances. 


Oscar is a pale green gourd who wears brown striped overalls and red striped tie with a white collared shirt. He also wears a brown hat and grows black hair, mustache, and eyebrows. He also has a bald spot that is covered by his hat. He is sometimes seen in a chef outfit, identical to the one Jimmy wears in "The Ballad Of Little Joe."
