Episode 971 - Oscar's Home Video
HBO Max Premiere: Wednesday May 27, 2020

Oscar hosts a home video screening! Bob, Luis, Mr. Hooper, and friends join Oscar. But are afraid his current videos will be like his last batch of home videos, all black. This time, Oscar's videos are all white! Everyone guesses what the sounds are, but nobody can see anything. Some of the sounds include a cow mooing, a cat meowing, and a jet plane flying overhead. Disappointed, Oscar's friends leave his screening, and some of the kids boo him for the bad movies. Luis goes back to his shop, where Big Bird later visits. Big Bird and Luis review the difference between "here" and "there" as Big Bid writes a letter to his Granny. Big Bird thinks Luis is not being nice to him, and he calls Luis a Grouch. Luis feels badly and sings a song, "Drat", reflecting on why he was grouchy to Big Bird.

1977 | 55 MIN

I guess it's not possible for just anyone to edit the cc data on these episodes, and with good reason. So, maybe someone can gently let HBO know that Emilio Delgado's character's name is Luis, not Louise.
