    I used to watch Sesame Street... and when I heard about poor Cookie Monster... oh the humanity!!! :GAAH: Cookies are part of his essential makeup, I simply cannot imagine how the poor guy can possibly survive now, reduced to hording vegetables. Oh have mercy!!!!! :lol:

    I actually have to agree.

    while I think promoting good eating habits is a good idea, cookie monster gets his name from COOKIE duh I think they try to make more out of things then they need to. I doubt that people who watched cookie monster growing up had him influence them negitively - if I am wrong on this please tell me.

    As to Elmo blowing up - now that is one sick person who did that. Why do people have to prey on little children to get a good laugh - go pick on someone your own size! :angry:

    I wouldnt' laugh at your brother, he is impressionable and even stuff like this is what is important to him. OH to be a kid again............

    I think that cookie monster thing is ridiculous. I hate "politically correctness" Just because I watched the cookie monster when I was a kid doesn't mean I went out and ate hundreds of cookies. Let the kids have fun! Good Grief!

    If they are going to take the Cookie Monster out of Sesame Street, they may as well take out Big Bird. They are what MAKES the show. I know they are not taking him out but renaming it. That is what makes the show. I tell you I am SO tired of all this darn Political Stuff. I watched it daily as a child and I use to love the Cookie Monster, the best part was when he would "eat" all those cookies and they would fall out all over the floor.
    I am just so tired of being told what we can and can not do. If parents do not like their kids to see a "monster" eating cookies, then they should not let them watch the show.
    It is the PARENTS responsibility to the teach the kids the right food to eat and not eat. Heck keep the cookies and JUNK food out of the house.

    Sorry, I had to vent. :angry:
