I am afraid that he sounds a very bored lonely pup.
Bassets love attention and are not happy being shut outside on their own all day,they love to be part of the family.
They need exercise and stimulation and do not do well if left to their own devices.
I have three Bassets and after an hours walk they will then sleep the morning away quite happily.
I cannot see Oscar's behaviour improving unless he is allowed to spend more time with you so that you can teach him the correct way to behave in the house.
If you are not able to do this it would probably be better to rehome him as he will get bigger and stronger and even more boisterous.

I do not know the layout of your house but is it possible to have a Baby Gates in the doorway so Oscar can see you in the kitchen but not be under your feet.
When mine were younger and naughty I used to give them 'time out' behind the gate to settle down before they came back in.
That is another thing a crate or pen can be useful for,also Treat Balls and stuffed Kongs are good at occupying naughty hounds.
