COOKIE MONSTER VISITS THE MET, MOMA AND GUGGENHEIM ON HIS ART TOUR

It was epic. Yesterday, Cookie Monster left Sesame Street to visit the Met, MoMA and the Guggenheim on his art tour. Not to mention that in support of his tour, Big Bird finally tweeted from his account, and the interchange between he and Cookie couldn’t have been more adorbs…


I mean, I was so excited about the tour that I had to pull over to the side of the road when the first Instagram surfaced of Cookie Monster in the MET.  There’s no denying that people who grew up with the characters from Jim Henson’s Workshop have a hard time acknowledging that they are merely… nope I won’t say it.  Let’s just say there was no shock that people losing their stuff while cozying up with Cookie for their Instagram posts. This is by far one of my favorites…

Best. Job. Ever. #cookiemonster #metmuseum

Sesame Street is prepping for Cookie Monster’s PBS Kids movie special “The Cookie Thief,” airing next week. I can’t get enough of the concept “In ‘The Cookie Thief,’ a cookie art museum has just opened on Sesame Street. Surrounded by beautiful cookie paintings, like “Girl With the Cookie Earring” and the “Muncha Lisa,” Cookie Monster and his friends feel as if they’re in a whole new world. But when art suddenly starts to disappear, Cookie Monster quickly becomes a suspect. Can Cookie Monster clear his name? Will they find the missing art in time or will Cookie Monster be banished from the museum forever?”

Look who stopped by to see some art! It’s Cookie Monster, all the way from @sesamestreet. #CookieArtTour
