Oswald is a large, round, blue octopus (four arms, four legs making a total of eight limbs) who lives in an apartment complex with Henry the Penguin. A very gentle, polite and big-hearted octopus, Oswald is always willing to go out of his way to help his friends. His favorite hobby is playing the piano and singing (usually to comfort himself or to encourage a friend). He sometimes says "Oh, my gosh!". Oswald always wears a life preserver when he is around water and loves Swizzleberry Swirl ice cream.
