    Cookie Monster answers the "Proust Questionnaire" in a video clip on the NPR website, which also has some thoughts on Cookie Monster as the unrestrained id (that's Freudian talk) of Frank Oz. You can find this and a few other Cookie tidbits at

    Fun stuff, check it out!

    Indeed it was; thanks for posting it! I don't usually listen to NPR, because quite honestly most of it is too "highbrow" for my tastes, but I figured Cookie Monster would keep it interesting, which he did!

    *Lol! Thank you, that was great! Let's start the messaging of other Muppets for them to profile! Along with other of our fave American fictional characters too of course...

    Who was that doing Cookie? It certainly didn't sound like Rudman...

    Indeed, they picked a very wise choice for a Muppet indeed. There are so many great ones, and Cookie is no exception. Hillarious throughout, and I just really love how the interview was handled.

    I especially like:
    "If heaven exisits, what would you want God to say to you when you enter the pearly gates?"
    "COWABUNGA!"

    Cowabunga indeed!

    So, that was Frank doing the voice? It sounded like Frank's CM voice. Wow! I didn't see the new SS smilies before. I guess I should talk about that in the other thread, but I couldn't help myself. Besides, since we're talking about Cookie Monster I guess this is relevant. :insatiable: :insatiable:

    this was delightful :insatiable: .. Frank Oz even calls him insatiable, so the smiley is perfect!

    Ah yes, I meant to ask that before. It was absolutely not Frank doing CM's voice, so who was it?
    I liked how they talked about Frank keeping Cookie's character as they were writing the sketches!

    Maybe it was Eric Jacobson? :confused: Then again maybe not. :batty: :crazy:

    Hmmm, probably not.

    It wasnt frank sadly, but its eric, the interview of frank sounds like it was a bit taken from the archives or whatever. But erics improvisation is really just fantastic, and its very OZ-esque. :insatiable:
    But none the less, this is just fantastic, it makes me want an inside the actors studio with oscar the grouch, or even a bert dollar bill. :(

    It was Eric? I didn't think it was him either, but rather some extra puppeteer or something. No offense, Eric!
    Yeah, I actually for a few seconds thought, "Why not a Bert dollar bill?" lol

    So, anyone know why David wasn't doing it?

    It was David Rudman. I know this. It sounded just like his Cookie voice. I can tell no matter what. :insatiable:

    That would be a good question on the performer change. Maybe Eric is staying with Sesame and David is working with Muppets?
  18. Daffyfan2003

    Daffyfan2003 Well-Known Member

    Yeah. I have to agree with Ernie on this one. Eric stopped voicing CM years ago. It had to have been Dave. Actually, it sounded like Frank though. Someone mentioned Eric's Grover has been sounding different from before as well. I guess it's because these guys have really been improving over the years.

    Ah, it makes more sense that it was David. I'm not really familiar with his CM voice, but I was able to link his CM in the interview to Baby Bear and other such characters where he uses a squeakier voice.
