Cookie Monster is famous for scarfing down cookies by the plateful. He is so enamoured of cookies that he has been known to burst into song, chanting in his throaty voice, "'C' is for cookie, that's good enough for me."
Now that Sesame Street is in its 36th season, which kicked off this week, he will be singing a different tune - called Cookies Are a Sometimes Food.
New characters will be featured, including talking eggplants and carrots. The segment American Fruit Stand will parody American Bandstand
Migod - they finally caught him. As slippery as Bin Laden and as dangerous as any WMD in the hands of state sponsors of terror. His reign has ended in ingnominity and self-loathing.
The Cookie Monster has eaten his last fat-laden, high sugar, white flour laden treat!!
My banana is most annoyed at this news, as it implies that eggplants and carrots are more intelligent, because they can talk.
A clear case of discrimination !
If the carrots don't get him, the ratings will....
