This is an outrage! Who among us does not know the immortal classic “C is for Cookie?” Sorry, I think I’m capable of teaching my kids that they don’t get to eat cookies ALL THE TIME. Cookie Monster is lovable because of his gluttony; the hyperbole of this little sweets-gobbling puppet is precisely what teaches the necessary lesson. The fact that he would pound down all those Chips Ahoys is what made him comical. If there’s one thing that kids will learn early on, it’s that they don’t want to be the object of ridicule. I say, give ol’ C.M. free reign in the cookie jar! Let my Muppets go!
