Favorite Cookie Monster Sketch

    I wonder if this thread will take off the same way the Ernie and Bert (fave sketch) did. (insert Cookie Monster smiley, here!)

    My favorite was an old one in which two AM's were fighting over a cookie. The boy AM decides that the smallest peron wll get the cookie. Cookie Monster comes up and watches them argue for a bit and then shrinks until he is absolutely tiny. "I'm the smallest!" he squeaks and then walks off with the cookie.

    Cookie Moster sketch

    One sketch I remember involved cookie monster with Kermit the frog. Kermit wanted to illustrate what the word "through" meant. He had a frame that was posted with tissue paper and the idea was when Kermit called cookie monster, he was supposed to come in and crash "through" the tissue paper frame, but his plan backfired when cookie monster saw the frame was in the way when he came on and didn't know what to do. Once Kermit described to CM what the plan was, he lifted up the frame and crashed it "through" Kermit's head. Did I miss any part of that?

    I have quite a few favorite Cookie Monster sketches. He's one of my favorite charachters on Sesame Street.

    There was one when Cookie Monster and Herry Monster are seen fighting over a Bicycle, Kermit rushes up to them and tells them it is ridiculous for them to be fighting and they should share the bike. After hearing this Cookie and Herry agree, and they starting eating the bicycle!

    Ernie is counting Apples and he counts that there are 4 Apples and Cookie Monster comes along and sees the delicious Apples and he asks Ernie if he can have one, Ernie says he can and so he changes the number to 3, then Cookie changes his mind and decides to put it back so Ernie Changes the number back to 4, then he decides he wants it again. This keeps happening over and over again until Ernie faints.

    Any of the Monsterpiece Theatre sketches are great in my book. I really wish they would bring them back. But I guess Monsterpiece Theatre was traded in The Letter of the Day Routine.

    It's a classic: If Moon was Cookie is high up there in my books. I don't remember alot of Monsterpiece Theatre ones specifically, but those are always good.

    here are the ones I can remember:
    ~The sketch with Kermit and Cookie where Kermit is trying to explain beginning, middle and end, but Cookie eats the book.
    ~Another Kermit and Cookie sketch where Kermit has a box with a mystery object inside and Cookie has to guess what's in the box
    ~Monsterpiece Theater-"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"

    These are all great guys! Keep 'em coming!

    On the very first episode of SS Kermit introduces the letter W. Cookie Monster (though at that time, it was not yet his name) sneaks up (with this creepy rumbling kettle drum sound) and bites off a piece turning the letter W into a capital letter N. Kermit goes on to list off some N words. Again Cookie comes up takes another bite turning into a letter I. He then tries to eat Kermit's foot. Kermit whaps him with his hand "Hey, there fella! Stop! I think I hear your mother calling!" to which Cookie looks up distracted and skulks off screen again (same rumbling drum sound).

    Actually, we do have a favorite Cookie Monster moments thread. Click here and enjoy! :)

    There are so many great and enjoyable Cookie Monster moments. The one you mention about the smallest cookie is a good one. And the very popular bakery skit where CM tries to eat Guy Smiley. And, of course, the C is for Cookie song. And there's the Beat the Time segment. And one of my favorites is where he was a princess in "The Princess and the Cookie" NewsFlash segment.
    One thing neat about Cookie Monster, among many things, was that he appeared with so many different muppets and people (Ernie, Kermit, Guy Smiley, Herbert Birsdsfoot, Herry, the hippie anything muppet, the boy and girl anything muppets you mentioned, the muppets in the Casey McPhee train sketch, etc.). He was a great character creation and fit in nicely with just about any context and also as a stand alone (similarly with The Count - great character creation and had many great moments both by himself and with other muppets).

    D-oh! I figured as much. (referring to previous Cookie thread!) :p

    Right now I would say when he sang "If Moon Was Cookie." It is such a beautiful song and probably one of my all time favs from Sesame Street. I also liked the recent episode when everyone accuses the innocent Cookie Monster from stealing their cookies. Well acted by CM and nice to see so much depth/emotion in the character.

    I admit I liked the "Cookie Hood" episode too, BEAR. I also forgot to mention I liked all of Cookie's scenes throughout "Don't Eat the Pictures."

    "Cookie tries to pass as Big Birds Granny"

    I know its not an old classic, but the part in #4086 where Cookie Monster tries to disguise himself to pass as Big Bird's "Granny Bird" in order to get the cookies Big Bird has baked for her is pretty hilarious!

    Hey Ziffel, does the "Princess and the Cookie" segment you refered to happen to be the one where Cookie plays the princess who has a cookie placed under a pile of matresses, (parallel to "The Princess and the Pea" storie), and when he / she can't sleep, instead of discovering the cookie, he decides to eat the matresses? :confused:

    You got it, that's the one! I posted about it in detail a few months ago. Click here and read post #11.

    An extremely funny and bizarre skit that was!

    anyone remember this skit where he's surrounded by Cookies and he sings the song, don't know what it was called might of been called Please givw cookie to me. nobody loves cookie as much as me oh please give cookie to me.
  15. Ziffel

    Ziffel Well-Known Member

    I remember that one. The song was pretty catchy with good music. I don't know what the title was either. He did say "nobody love cookie as much as me, oh please give cookie to me" several times in the song. There was one lyric where he said, "When I was older I went in to school ...."

    I used this sketch in my "Cookie Monster eating healthier in news" thread as an example of how much he loves cookies. Other examples are the classic "C is for cookie, that's good enough for me" song and "the smallest one gets the cookie" skit where he shrinks himself to get the cookie and says, "I do ANYTHING for cookie."

    CM eats Earnies Ukelele

    :) I think I described this somewhere else on this forum, but for the life of me I can't find it, so I'll put it here:

    Ernie is showing us his ukelele when CM suddenly shows up;

    E: "Oh, no you don't!
    CM: "Dont do what?"
    E: "You came to eat my ukelele, I just know it!"
    CM: "Who say me only eat things? Me crushed!"
    E: "Well, you just do! It's inevitable."
    CM: "Me dissapointed you judge me like that. For you information, me can play ukelele!"
    E: "Realy? You mean to tell me, if I let you take my ukelele, you would actualy PLAY it?"
    CM: "Sure! Here, me show you!"
    E: "Well, O.K., if you promise to PLAY it."
    CM: "Ya, ya, ya!!!!!"
    Ernie hands the ukelele over to Cookie, who then proceeds to play and sing "Tip-toe, through the tulips" (At a rather rapid pace), ending with an added few repeats of the phrase "through the tulips!" (escalation in pitch and speed with each one) making his finally "Through the tulips!, Through the tulips! Through the tulips!.... Tip-toe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    E(astonished): "Wow! You realy did play it!"
    CM: "Ya! And me can do other things with it, to!
    E: "Oh? What else can you do with a ukelele?"
    CM: (with fiendish grin) "Me can EAT ukelele!!!!!"
    And, as Ernie looks on in dismay, CM proceeds to do so. :p

    I may have posted in here before, but after watching an episode on demand (it was in the 37 or 3800's), I saw a sketch where Cookie has a cookie and says, "mmmm....cookie!" Then, he sees a pinkish girl AM walk by, so he breaks the cookie in half and says, "Share." But when he eats it in his normal Cookie Monster-fashion, the girl AM eats it the same way! Does this sketch ring a bell to anyone?

    Yep, I remember that one. The reaction on Cookie's face is priceless.
  19. Ziffel

    Ziffel Well-Known Member

    I remember that one also. It was from the 70's. I would guess more like 1975 than 69-74 though. That's about my earliest memory of it.
    Remember the music that plays until Cookie says 'Share"? A violin solo, as Sesame Mike mentioned about this sketch a while back in another Cookie Monster thread.

    superfan Well-Known Member

    Am I correct in recalling the fact that the pink AM shyly walked up to Cookie and looked up at him as if to beg, "Oh, please, can I have your cookie, pleease?"
    Such a cute skit!
