Me Have Crazy Times in 70s and 80s. Me Was Robert Downey Jr of Cookies...



This week thanks to Adam Kuban's Cookie Monster post on Serious Eats this week, I got to see this gem of an interview I missed on the Colbert Report. As an impressionable child I witnessed much of these crazed cookie munching antics, and I loved Cookie for it. It pains me to hear Cookie Monster plugging fruit. Through the wonders of YouTube, I dug up a couple clips of Cookie in his prime; a little song and dance number called Me Lost Me Cookie at the Disco and as a bonus, Cookie's tribute to Shaft...



That's more like it. Did you catch the freaky Elmo-ish Red Monster getting his groove on? This clip is sort of like "Before they Were Stars." That's is in fact Elmo before he took over the ENTIRE show relegating the real Sesame Street luminaries to the back burnerdom promoting fruity vegetables. No, I'm not bitter.



Stay strong, Cookie! Keep om nom noming!
