CRAP !!
Oscar’s character is there, but he goes by different names.
On the Pakistani edition, he’s “Akhtar” and he lives in an oil drum. In
Turkey, he’s called “Kirpik” and he lives in a basket. There is no Oscar in
the Israeli version. Instead they have his cousin, “Moisha Oofnik” who
lives in an abandoned car.
