Oscar is a highly intelligent owl. He is usually found doing research, reading encyclopedias, watching documentaries, or helping Edward around his laboratory. He communicates by hooting, and people are somehow able to understand what he’s saying.
- His last name happens to be the scientific term for the owl.
- During development of the series, Oscar was originally a guinea pig based on Sauls’ pet guinea pig.
- However, he changed him to an owl because he has stated in a 1999 interview, “You don’t really hear a lot about people keeping an owl as a pet, and the thought of Edward owning one was unique.”
- He also doubles as a Team Pet for The Lucky 6.
- Humorously, he only speaks in hoots even though his family members are perfectly capable of speaking English.
