Is Cookie Monster no more?

    I'm curious about what you say about earlier versions of Cookie before SS. I definiately have never seen them being that I wasn't around to see TMS which I know started airing in 1976. I have how ever been keeping up with the best of the muppets and the first season of TMS, as well as what ever I can get my hands on. I haven't seen anything to date as an early Cookie Monster. I have seen other monsters eating other monsters and things on TMS.

    I have noticed Mr. Noodles actions on the show, and it is particularly annoying. SS used to be something I could sit there and watch over the summer just for fun and it was still cute and retained its muppetyness. Now it feels like a pain to watch the end once they put on Elmo's world. I think they are trying to squeeze out every last drop out of it till it dies. I found multipule tapes of Elmo's World, 50 minutes long! Though back to Mr. Noodle. Just because something didn't work then, back in the 70's, there is no reason it can't work now. That or they just need Jim Henson to come back from the grave and kick them all in the butt, it might get them back into shape.

    That's fine if it's her favorite part of the show. As long as she knows what the show is called, that's all. :)

    I too am surprised, as someone mentioned earlier, that parents never seem to mind certain characters'...um...speech difficulties.

    There was a monster that would become Cookie Monster later on. He appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show (eating a machine). A black and white photo from 1967 can be seen here. This "Cookie Monster" was green and had teeth. A color photo can be seen here. Another version of Cookie Monster that I know of is from a Munchos potato chip commercial from the 1960s. Back then he was called Arnold. Check it out here.

    oh no, those first pictures on that link reminded me of a bad dream i had once.

    The dream was that cookie monster and a huge leprachon jumped out of a burger king commercial and tried to eat me, and worst of all, cookie had huge teeth.

    Wow, that is a bad dream! *Comforts Neo* Don't worry, Cookie and the Leprochon won't hurt you any more. Now we have a scary person with a mask on BK comercials.

    waah. I miss my bonus features. I need a new copy of What's The Name Of That Song so we can watch "Captain Vegetable" again.
    as for the whole Cookie biz... he's a healthy dude, cause he eats healthy food....and many non food items as well(as I Like Muppets said).

    1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8, press the right key...

    That joke reminds me of a song/sketch with Maria showing Cookie Monster how a computer worked: the machine was running software that displayed a certain number of dancing blue cookies onscreen (depending on which number key was pressed). Cookie Monster tries to grab the cookies from the screen and sings to Maria: "Me promise me save one for you." He eventually tries to eat the computer itself; luckily, Maria prevents him from doing it.

    If Sesame Workshop needed help writing Cookie Monster sketches (and you had the credentials), I bet they'd hire you first: you stay in character perfectly there. On a lighter note, I think this fanscript would interest you; you're not the only old-school fan who hates to see Cookie Monster turned into an Alphabet Monster/part-time nutritionist.
