Cookie Monster makes an unexpected appearance in a news segment on Sesame Street. Original Jim Henson puppet Kermit the Frog hosted a recurring sketch on the show called "News Flash" where he interviewed storybook characters. The story always takes a twist on the classic tales, including this adaptation of Little Red Riding Hood. Not surprisingly, Cookie Monster is caught on camera acting stingy with someone else's food.



Dressed in a trench coat and fedora, reporter Kermit stands with a microphone outside of the cottage belonging to Little Red Riding Hood's grandma, hoping for an exclusive look inside of Little Red's basket. Cookie Monster shows up as Red, donning a blonde wig and red coat. He meets Kermit and asks, "Are you sure you're not a wolf in frog's clothing?" You've got to love it.


Cookie Monster as Little Red agrees to show what goodies are in the basket for the sick granny, which just so happen to be an assortment of cookies. A shocked Kermit informs Cookie Monster that sick people want healthy treats, like chicken soup and fresh vegetables. Once the monster confirms his sick granny wouldn't want the sweets, he happily and pretty much immediately eats all the cookies. A little convenient, don't you think? The cookie stealer strikes again.
