Cookie Monster - Sesame Street Character


        The blue Cookie Monster is one of the main Sesame Street characters for years. He is known for his blue fur and googly eyes. They are his special features. As it is understood from his name, he loves cookies so much, but not only cookies, he also loves eating so much. He has a deep growly voice, and he says for example ‘Me wants cookie’ instead of “I want cookie”.  Apart from this, "Om nom nom nom" is another his famous phrase, he makes this when eating cookie.

        His birthday is on 2nd November, 1969. His favourite letter is C, because C is the first letter of cookie, this is both his name and his favourite food. C for Cookie. He has four fingers and a thumb. In one episode, he said that his name is Tiny and he has a brother Fred.

Sesame Street The Cookie Thief



          At the beginning he said only milk and cookie and he didn’t speak at the episodes. But over the years he became a main character at the Sesame Street family. Some parents are protested to his eating habits but the directors of Sesame Street said that there are other characters with healthy eating habits at the show.

         But also the Cookie monster encourages the kids to eat a balanced diet and enjoy in cookies sometimes, in season 36. After many discussions Matt Lauer decided that Cookie Monster becomes a Fruit Monster in episode 4115. He eats his fruit first and then his cookies. They played with the idea to call him Veggie Monster instead of Cookie Monster.

His puppet is built with a hole in the back of the mouth. So it is possible to create the illusion they Cookie Monster is eating a lot of things. Sure, the cookies used on Sesame Street are not really at all. They won’t damage the puppet with the oil of real cookies.

The cookies of Cookie Monster are made on the Furcheste Hotel with certain ingredients and then they are painted with hot glue globs. Thousands of cookies were baked over the years.

In 2013 a Cookie Monster original puppet, was donated to the Smithsonian Institution.
