Stephen Colbert confronted Cookie Monster on "The Colbert Report" last month--he hilariously accuses Cookie Monster of being unpatriotic for not incessantly binging on cookies.
"I will not eat fruit unless it's in Loop or Pebbles form," says Colbert. lol :)
"Me have crazy times in 70s and 80s. Me like the Robert Downey Jr. of cookies," says Cookie Monster.
The news peg was a story that fruit has surpassed cookies as kids' No. 1 snack. (Yay!)
The video is hilarious--but it raises a big question: When did Cookie Monster change his M.O.? I don't have kids, so I haven't watched "Sesame Street" since I baby-sat in high school.
I'm happy "Sesame Street" is promoting cookies as a "sometimes food," but I'm wondering what else has changed? Are Bert and Ernie still living together? Is Snuffy still Big Bird's "imaginary" friend? And what about Oscar? Is he still a Grouch? Find the video clip below:
