    there was 1 were Cookie and Big Bird be the King Miinis cartoon and cookie comes up with the idea that he's touches everything and it turns into a pile of cookies.he turns 2 things into cookies, 1 of them a tree near Hooper's store. and when Bob and Susan come by he tells them about his magic touch and then accidently turns them into cookies. would of been funny if somebody came by and started eating them.

    I seem to recall the first item that "King Cookie" turned into a pile of cookies was the newsstand. He later did turn Bob and Susan into cookies, and then David was talking to and pointing to him, and CM said in a panicked voice "don't touch me!", as CM was expressing regret about losing two of the adults to cookiedom. Like the real King Midas story, CM regretted having that power, and it was all just a dream/imagination sequence anyways.

    That was a long violin solo we heard while CM was contemplating what to do. There were only two spoken (English) words in that whole skit: when CM cracked the cookie in half he said "Share" and the lady muppet said the same thing. The music stopped, then CM ate his cookie in the familiar "ah-rum-rum" fashion. Immediately after that, the lady ate her cookie the same way, albeit with a higher voice. CM, and most of the viewers probably, were like, huh?
    That was the ring-the-bell-with-the-hammer game at the carnival. The carni quietly told us that he had the thing rigged to be impossibly difficult. Still, CM tried it twice and didn't get the weight up high enough to ring the bell. When he asked the barker what the prize was and he said a cookie, CM said "I do anything for cookie! Cowabunga!" and hit the hammer so hard that not only did he ring the bell, he caused the whole contraption to collapse. "Maybe, I shouldn't have told him about the cookie" conceded the carni.
    Little bird stood beside an open window with a snowstorm outside. Getting too cold, he moved over to the radiator. Getting too warm, he moved over to "a special friend" who was just right.

    The chorus went (not sure who said what):
    HERRY MONSTER: I look up and see the sky
    COOKIE MONSTER: I look down and see the ground
    BOTH: I look at you and sing a song about up and down.

    One line went:
    HM: I look down and see the rug, and then I see my shoe

    A spoken exchange between verses of the song went:
    CM: When I look up, I no see my cookie.
    HM: That's because you're looking in the wrong direction!

    Thanks for explaining things SesameMike .

    I really liked it when the carnie is talking to "us", Cookie asks who he is talking to. And, you actually do hear the bell ring on cue when it is destroyed

    Thought of a really short Cookie Monster one from the 70's. About 10 seconds long. He is holding an egg and says, "E. Egg." And then he swallows it whole, shell and all. Then he moans loudly and falls backwards.

    Remember the one with Cookie Monster and Ernie where Ernie had some cookies in some kind of container (maybe a brown paper bag). And I think Ernie has a device that he says can count cookies. He demonstrates to Cookie Monster how if he points it at the cookies it will make a ringing sound like a bell for each cookie there is. I think there were five cookies so we heard 5 bell sounds. At one point while Ernie is looking at the viewers and talking, Cookie Monster eats all the cookies while Ernie's back is turned. Then Ernie points at the bag and no sound comes. He asks CM why there is no bells. CM says because there are no cookies. Ernie is puzzled so CM tells him to point that thing at his stomach. And it dings five times. Ernie then realizes what happened.
    One question: The part where Ernie asks CM why there are no bell sounds, it sounded to me like Ernie says, "Hey Sam, how come there are no bells?" Did he really call CM Sam? Or was it some other word he said? Actually, maybe he said "Shirley." Just kidding. That was in reference to another skit when we were wondering if a muppet said, "Shirley" or "sharing." :p

    It was Cookie Monster's device and he called it a "Cookie Counter". It was this machine that made a repeating "Puk-a-TEE-ga puk-a-TEE-ga" sound. The device had a pointer attached, as well as a square that illuminated whenever the bell rang.
    I remember that line, and it sounded to me like Ernie actually said "CM" (pronounced "see-emm"), the very same shorthand that we use all the time right here on this board! Perhaps the Muppeteers used that abbreviation during rehearsal and such, and Henson (with respect to the deceased) just made an honest gaffe? But in that case, why didn't they just retake the scene? Could be that no one noticed until the sketch was aired! I doubt that it was one of those errors they left in deliberately, like Fat Blue saying the "Y" was missing from his alphabet soup, or that girl who said "Cookie Monster", or the little girl who recited the alphabet for Kermit but omitted the "M", etc.

    I was trying to think whether Cookie Monster or Ernie owned that device and thought it was probably Ernie since he was upset at the end of the skit when CM ate the cookies. But I guess it was because the cookies were Ernie's and just the device was CM's.
    And that is just fascinating, Sesame Mike, what you mentioned regarding Sam and CM! I do recall that when it sounded like Ernie said, "Hey Sam.." that it was more like 2 syllables indeed. Seeyam. CM! Very good, never made that connection. Yeah maybe it was a gaffe that went unnoticed. Has certainly happened in plenty of other movies and television shows. I noticed once in a "Brady Bunch" episode where the kids are jumping on a trampoline outside, Barry Williams who played Greg Brady mistakenly called Jan by her real name, Eve. With all the other kids shouting it's not too surprising that the editors didn't catch it. Anyway, that's really neat.

    More about the "cookie counter"

    After Cookie Monster demonstrated the cookie counter to Ernie, Ernie opened up the box and counted the cookies contained therein. We couldn't see any cookies at the time (he pointed to them from the top as he counted to 5), but we did see evidence of actual biscuits as CM ate them in the background.

    Ernie's little shpeil to himself/the camera while CM unobtrusively gorged himself was something to the effect that the counter would be useful in determining the number of cookies left in the cookie jar, because he cannot see all the way to the bottom.

    I thought he said "CM" way back when. I remember asking myself "what does the 'CM' stand for?". Then I thought "Cookie Monster? Then why did he call him that then and no other time?" It did not enter my mind that the show could have (gasp!) made a mistake!

    When CM asked Ernie to point to his tummy with the counter wand, he hastily added "No/don't tickle just point." CM's last line here was "Cookies in tummy!" I didn't think Ernie was that perturbed at CM's consumption of the cookies (they might have been CM's to begin with), more like he was perplexed that the counter was still accurate regarding contents of the digestive tract.

    As for the Brady Bunch gaffe, Barry Williams admits in his book "Growing up Brady" that he did indeed say "Why don't you give it a try, Eve." in that trampoline scene. I'd heard (but not confirmed) that the same episode had Florence Henderson saying to Peter "Oh Chris...", i.e., his real name.

    My favorite Cookie Monster moment has to be on the "Don't Eat the Pictures" video where Cookie tries to eat what he sees in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (but Bob points out a sign in the museum that says "Please don't eat the pictures," Cookie promises not to eat anything, and he sings a song about it), and in the end, Bob rewards him by saying he can have anything at the silver lunch cart that he wants to eat, but then Cookie ends up eating the lunch cart!

    Another one I just recall bits and pieces of is when The Cookie Monster was on a diet. The details I remember had CM inside Ernie and Bert's apartment with Ernie. I think Ernie was afraid CM was going to eat his cookies but CM declined. Ernie figured something must be wrong and asked him if he was sick. CM says, "No, me not sick. Me on diet." But eventually Grover walks by (funny how he just happens to be passing by IN Ernie's apartment! it'd be one thing if this skit was outside at the wall! ) and then notices CM. He tells him he looks bad because he is looking too thin ("You look terrible! Yuck!").
    Upon hearing that CM's diet bites the dust! I think he then munches Ernie's cookies in record time and I think Ernie is upset. (It seemed like any time the skits involved Ernie and Cookie Monster that Ernie usually ended up on the losing end. Which is the opposite of the conclusions of the E&B skits, of course).

    my favorite songs that cookie monster sang are c is for cookie, the ballad of casey mcphee, the song about cookie monsters first cookie and they can't take that away from me.

    my other favorite cookie monster moments are:

    the sketch where cookie monster eats the letters that spell food.

    the cookie bunny.

    and cookie monsters appearance as little red riding hood on Sesame street news (considering that this season is about healthy eating, this would be a perfect segment to show this season).

    Favorite Cookie Moments

    Hello everybodeee!:super:

    I am back once again. Sorry to have been gone so long. There's lots of things I like watching Cookie Monster do, because he's one of my favorite monsters.

    I like when he bothers Kermit, his Monsterpiece Theater episodes, when he goes nom nom nom nom whenever he eats, even his letter of the day skits were pretty funny.

    But the part I liked best was where he tried to write/type to/ call Santa and he kept eating everything...lol! And then to top it off, he ate the tree. :)

    Your dear friend,
    Kitt

    I like the series of (very old-school) sketches where Ernie would try to demonstrate a letter and something that started with that letter, but Cookie would interrupt and end up eating said item. I used to have a cassette tape that featured each of them. The "U is for ukulele" one was particularly memorable.
  20. Which Birthday Cookie skit?

    The Birthday Cookie? Are you thinking of Cookie Monster having a nightmare on meeting The Giant, Talking, "Monster Cookie?" I remember that skit. After Cookie Monster eat the whole box of birthday cookies that his grandmother made for his birthday, He felt depressed that there were no cookies left for birthday party. And he took a nap and dream about meeting "The Monster Cookie" who told Cookie Monster the sad tale on how he became that way. The Monster Cookie was also a blue furry monster, too. But eating too many cookies has caused him to become a cookie. And now, He regrets he never had any healthy treats. When Cookie Monster wakes up from his dream sadley, He sobbed "What a dream! Oh, Very sad!" He took his vision's advice and vows to never eat cookies again! So, Instead of cookies, Cookie Monster decided to eat carrots, fish, and whole-wheat bread. And then eats a cookie and said "Well, Maybe sometime a cookie." BTW, This was a pre-Veggie Monster sketch from 1992.
