I used to have a little toy with Oscar the Grouch (a Muppet character from Sesame Street) in a trash can. It had wheels and when you pulled him along behind you, he would bob his head up and down and make this sound similar to saying “Oscar”. It sounded more like “Occer” to me, or perhaps wah-er. I often played with him on the front porch since there was plenty of room for me to run back and forth from one side of the house to the other. I think the wheels had sand or something in them as well that made sounds. Making noise was one of the most enjoying things that I got out of my child hood unless I got in trouble for it.
