Cookie Monster eats to win in The Hungry Games: Catching Fur!

I keep telling you I am not lying when it comes to excuses to post Cookie Monster, and Sesame Street keeps delivering with awesome movie parodies!

Cookieness Evereat is back to play in the Hungry Games. Can Cookieness and her friends, Finnicky, Tick Tock Lady, and Pita escape from the poking monkeys and tickling winds? Find out in The Hungry Games: Catching Fur. May the cookies be ever in your flavor.

The Hungry Games: Catching Fur not only teaches children that YA literature is ripe for parody, but also important lessons about patterns. And also that you shouldn’t eat your friends. Eating clocks is apparently OK, so don’t try that at home, kids!

Cookie’s anguished cry upon hearing there will be yet another sequel is something I’ve been familiar with as people discuss the films in various internet forums. As I’m pro-Hunger Games, I find the annoyance amusing. Whoever wrote the parody has read the books, and Tick Tock Lady is a spot on Amanda Plummer. The best part of the movie is Cookie Monster is a girl and no one cares.

Cookie Monster is a super spy in The Spy Who Loved Cookies!

I was not joking when I said I was looking for excuses to talk about Cookie Monster.

The nefarious Lady Finger has stolen the Crown Cookies! Only Agent Double-Stuffed Seven, aka Cookie Monster, can save the day…if he bothers to listen to directions! Featuring computer effects, Bond song riffs, and Cookie Monster running into doors.

A funny parody that has a lesson to be learned about following instructions. Helped by Cookie’s boss telling him the directions in such a complicated way! Good grief, be more direct, please. The skit was longer than I thought it would be, I am guessing because they were so happy to cram as much as possible that they could.

Cookie Monster has been in increasing visibility as the new season of Sesame Street starts. The scandal with Elmo/Kevin Clash is probably the main reason, Cookie Monster is another visible monster alternative that adults and children love. No offense to Zoey or Abby Cadabby, but I didn’t grow up with them and have less emotional attachment. My children will, and I would expect them to gain some prominence this season and possibly used in some of the promotional material going into next year (and maybe the new Elmo, but I’ve never been 100% fond of Elmo!) Other monsters have various problems: Grover is rather intense and was eclipsed by Elmo far too much. Two-Headed Monster is mainly about cooperation and speaks mostly gibberish. Harry is rarely used despite him being a favorite of mine as a kid. Telly is too Telly to be in many ads. Oscar would be cool, but his attitude limits the scope of the parodies. And some of the classic Sesame Street performers must be getting up there in years.

Now, with all the vampires in the media, why isn’t The Count more prominent? I demand more Count! Also Oscar’s pet worm Slimey. He’s a worm named Slimey, people!

Sorry, here are a bunch of stills I took from the video because it’s too awesome not to take many stills from:

Cookie Monster – Share It Maybe


Confession: I’ve never heard the original “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen on the radio, but it’s played on the background on videos my wife watches, so I’m familiar enough with it when it went enormous I wasn’t completely lost. But ignoring all that, the Muppets are awesome, Sesame Street is awesome, Cookie Monster is awesome, and this video is awesome. So that’s a lot of awesome. Watch it, be awesome.
