Same old Cookie

"Casting Off Cookies?" asks the Post.

No, no, a thousand times no. I know whereof I speak. I record "Sesame Street" every day, and watch it every day. I saw the episode that everyone's talking and writing about, the one where cookies are referred to as a "sometime food," and a wise owl tries to explain to Cookie Monster that fruits and veggies are "anytime foods." At the end of the song, Cookie Monster--equipped with all this new nutritional information--declares that "now is a 'sometime,'" and he scarfs the cookie. Not only that, but in Thursday's Cookie-centric episode, all Cookie eats are cookies. Lots of them. With no remorse.

So lay off "Sesame Street." It may be changing with the times, but it's not disrupting the fabric (pun intended) of the characters we all know and love.

I beg to differ.
They have practically CASTRATED Oscar the Grouch.
When's the last time you heard him slam down the lid to his trash can and after yelling, "SCRAM! GET OUTTA HERE!!!" ?!

We need more grouches on Sesame Street, dammit!

Grungetta's pretty grouchy, don't you think?

LOL at Susie Sunshine's comment. Susie, you can always rent Follow That Bird if you want a taste of the old Oscar. But stay away from the execrable Elmo in Grouchland.

Ugh, unfortunately I DVR'd "Elmo in Grouchland" one day. I hated it--and I love Mandy Patinkin and would watch almost anything with him in it. But that was just awful. We didn't even make it to the end of the movie.
