Oswald O'Burger, The Happy Cowboy

Oswald O'Burger, otherwise known as The Happy Cowboy, was a greedy businessman and owner of the fast-food chain Burger Skip in the series 1 episode Burgerskip.


A very greedy man, Oswald’s only goal in life was to make as much money as he could. He was a tall and thin man with a long, sharp nose, and dressed in a white shirt beneath a red waistcoat, blue jeans, cowboy boots, and a ten-gallon hat.


Oswald chopped down and killed the old tree Panacheck along with the rest of the Amazon rainforest to make more space for his cattle to graze on, despite warnings from a old Amazon Indian. However, he was eventually whisked off, never to be seen again, by the ghost of Panacheck at the end of the episode.


  • In the story Burgers upon which Burgerskip is based, Oswald’s name was in fact Seamus O’Burger, and he dressed as a clown as opposed to a cowboy. This is clearly a reference to Ronald McDonald, the former mascot of fast-food chain McDonalds.
