They are featured in "The Walrus & The Carpenter or The Tale of the Curious Oysters" segment wherein the little oysters are tricked by The Walrus and the Carpenter into going for a walk when in actuality they plan to eat them.
When the Carpenter spots a bed of oysters, the Walrus goes into the water to try to entice to come on a walk.The mother oyster declines his offer in a feeble voice saying it's not the time to leave her oyster bed, as she knows that oysters are eaten in months with an "R" in them. Though the mother advises that her children stay home, the Walrus silences her long enough to trick the oysters into following him. At the Carpenter's diner, while the Carpenter prepares a "sauce that's fit for kings", the greedy Walrus eats all of the oysters.
Interestingly, though they are eaten, four of them make their last appearance near the end in a reprise of "The Caucus Race".
In "House of Genius" they make a cameo walking over a sleeping Donald.
The Curious Oyster's bottom shell appears to be a built in bed while their top shells appear to be bonnets.
- In the original poem, the mother oyster wasn't present. Instead it was the eldest oyster who warned the rest not to leave.
