When Cookie Monster Was Green

rewindThis clip has been making the rounds this week. It's old-school Sesame Street with Cookie Monster eating a computer.

It's funny and all, but this Cookie Monster is quite different from the Cookie Monster I grew up with. There are two significant differences:

  • This Cookie Monster has sharp lookin' teeth
  • This Cookie Monster is green!

When did our blue, toothless Cookie Monster make his first appearance?

Here are some cookie recipes.

Actually, based on the laugh track, I'd guess this is a clip from the Muppet Show, not Sesame Street. That means that's not technically Cookie Monster. :)

You're right, it's not from Sesame Street, but it is the muppet who would become Cookie Monster.

At the time he was named Arnold the Munching Monster.

This was created by Jim Henson in 1967 as an IBM training video, believe it or not.
