Oscar, the Smyths Toys Superstores animated icon, is adding another single to his growing discography by collaborating with toy company Jazwares.
The video for his new single, Welcome to Squishville, takes viewers through his journey through the town, where he meets with a selection of Squishmallows favourites. This single follows Oscarâ€™s success on YouTube (which boasts more than 35 million views) where he often collaborates with other celebrated characters. Oscar is signed to Sony Musicâ€™s Magic Starlabel.
This pop-inspired number sees Oscar break out his guitar-playing skills. The song details Oscarâ€™s adventures in Squishville, and his connection to each of his new friends. In the video, Oscar performs Welcome to Squishville in front of a crowd of his new pals, including Squishmallows favourites Cam the Cat, Fifi the Fox, and Lola the Unicorn. Oscar cruises around Squishville on a levitating platform, before encouraging the Squishmallows to join him.
Jazwares marketing director Alexandra Painter said: â€œThis collaboration is a testament to the phenomenal growth in the popularity of Squishmallows. We are thrilled to welcome Oscar to perform in our beloved Squishville. Welcome to Squishville is an unbelievably catchy pop song from Sony Music that perfectly captures the positive and inclusive values of Squishville by Original Squishmallows.â€
