The oil can is an item featured in several different Humongous Entertainment games. It is first featured in Freddi Fish 2: The Case of the Haunted Schoolhouse
Freddi Fish 2: The Case of the Haunted SchoolhouseEdit
Freddi and Luther will need the oil can if they need to get a cork for their trap. The duo can find the oil can in the old submarine. Once the duo obtain the oil can, Freddi and Luther will need to use it on the pipe that Tucker Turtle's head is stuck into in order to remove the pipe off Tucker without harming his delicate finish. After they do that, the oil can will be replaced with the pipe.
According to Luther, the oil is non-toxic biodegradable oil.
Pajama Sam: No Need to Hide When it's Dark OutsideEdit
Sam will need the oil can in order to gain entry to the shack (which may contain the hammer or his flashlight) or allow King the mine cart to move again. Sam can find the oil can on the tree stump next to the shack in all versions of the game. Once Sam has the oil can, he can use it to remove the rust from the shack's door hinges (so that it can be opened) and/or remove the rust from King's wheels, allowing Sam to use King as transportation through the mines.
Putt Putt Travels Through TimeEdit
Putt-Putt wil need the oil can in order to allow Tobias T. Train to move again (this is only 1/2 of the job as Toby will request Putt-Putt to give him water or firewood, so that he will be fueled up for transportation) or gain entry to the castle. Putt-Putt can find the oil can in the train station where Toby is stuck in. Once Putt-Putt has the oil can, he can use it to remove the rust from Toby's wheels and/or remove the rust from the castle gate's lever, allowing Putt-Putt, Princess Chassis, and Woodward to open the gate and enter the castle.
After Putt-Putt gives Toby some oil, Toby will give Putt-Putt a nickel in exchange for his help. Putt-Putt can also oil Toby's wheels to gain extra reward nickels from Toby (which will be necessary if the player needs to use more than one nickel for important items that Putt-Putt will need).
