Country Bear Jamboree Question
I'm pretty good at solving the little mysteries but this one really has me stumped.
Does anyone know the official story behind Baby Oscar? Oscar appears with The Five Bear Rugs, but plays no instrument. In fact, he never says a word. For the life of me I can't figure out what detail he adds to the show. First time I saw the Jamboree I waited for some kind of payoff, but he just sits there kinda sad. I feel like I'm missing something.
Also, there's an odd horn sound right between "Bear Band Serenade" and "Fractured Folk Song". 2 quick toots. It sounds again after they play "Pretty Little Devilish Mary". (I think Oscar even gets a spotlight during the toots.) And then again after Ernest plays "If Ya Can't Bite, Don't Growl". What is that?
