Sesame street cookie monster letter of the day d

The Letter of the Day | Muppet Wiki

The Letter of the Day is a Sesame Street segment introduced in 2002, hosted by Cookie Monster. In 2004, Prairie Dawn appeared with Cookie Monster in the segments.

The original segments from 2002 all involved the letter written in icing on a cookie, which Cookie Monster constantly tried not to eat, but in the end, he gave in and ate the cookie anyway. Frank Oz performed Cookie Monster in some of these segments, and occasionally another character would help him, usually Grover or Prairie Dawn, as well as Ernie in an unaired segment.

Starting in 2004, when he was teamed up with Prairie Dawn, the letter presented was just a foam letter which Cookie Monster often wanted to eat. Prairie Dawn kept trying to get Cookie not to eat the letter, but Cookie Monster always managed to find a way to eat it anyway.

Some segments produced in 2005 involved "The Letter of the Day Games," a game show introduced by a very energetic off-camera announcer (voiced by Matt Vogel).

"The Letter of the Day" was a daily segment on the show until 2007. The 2004 segments with Cookie and Prairie Dawn appeared in some (but not all) episodes during that season. In season 39, new segments were made, commonly connecting to the street scene for that episode, featuring other characters instead of Cookie Monster. In season 40, Murray Monster began hosting the Letter of the Day, in addition to introducing various other show elements.

Cookie Monster (Sesame Street)

Cookie Monster is a fictional puppet character from the television show Sesame Street. Cookie is known for his insatiable appetite, as well as the phrases he utters through his full mouth: “ I want cookies! " (" Me want cookie! "), " I'm eating cookies! " (" Me eat cookie! ") and " Om-yum-yum-yum! "(" Om nom nom nom "), however, in Russian translation, except for the habit of talking about yourself in the third person and omitting articles (" Cookie wants cookies! "), he mostly speaks normally.

Cookie eats just about anything he can get his hands on, including Danish cookies, dates, lettuce, apples, Xbox 360 bananas (in a promotional video for the new Sesame Street game Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster with Tim Schafer). There is also a case of cannibalism in an episode of Sesame Street: Cookie Monster Buys A Rhyme. However, he still prefers cookies. Chocolate is his favorite variety, oatmeal is second, and Cookie is allergic to peanut butter cookies. nine0020

The doll is covered with blue fur, with glass imitation eyes.

The English version of the character is voiced by Frank Oz (from 1969 to 2002) and David Rudman (from 2002 to present).

Character Creation

Jim Henson's Designs and Doodles describes Cookie's appearance as follows:

In 1966, Henson drew three biscuit-eating monsters that appeared in General Foods, a commercial project that was going to produce three types of crunchy snacks in the form of wheels, crowns and flutes. Each snack was represented by its own monster. The "wheeled" monster Stealer was short, shapeless, with crazy eyes and sharp teeth. Flute Snatcher had a long pointed nose and shaggy hair. Crown Grabber (Grabber) resembled Boris Karloff with teeth like knitting needles. These monsters were big hunters of the snacks they were named after. Every time the narrator, a humanoid Muppet, was about to eat a cookie, it would disappear before he could. Frustrated and hungry, the narrator warned viewers that "these nasty monsters might be hiding in your own house." nine0020

These commercials never aired, but all three monsters became full-fledged muppet characters with their own uses. The Crown Grabber was used in a sketch on The Ed Sullivan Show. Known as Beautiful Day Monster, she has made a number of appearances on The Muppets and Sesame Street. Flute Snatcher has evolved into Snake Frackle, the monster from The Great Santa Claus Switch and The Muppets. In 1967, Henson used the Wheel-Steeler in the IBM educational film Coffee Break Machine. In the sketch called "Computer Dinner", a monster with frightening eyes and fangs devours a coffee maker, describing its various parts along the way. When he finishes, the machine reports that the monster has activated the system to destroy the vandals. The monster quickly explodes. This sketch was also shown on October 1967 years on The Ed Sullivan Show. In addition, he later appeared on The Muppets.

An equally predatory monster was used by Henson to create three commercials for Munchos potato chips. This time the character's name was Arnold, the Munching Monster. Henson could have extended his contract, but he didn't because he started working on Sesame Street - and this monster moved him to a new stage in his career. The Biscuit Monster, still unnamed, first appeared on Sesame Street with Kermit the Frog in the "famous W lecture", eating the letter "W" bit by bit and turning it into an "N", "V" , and finally in "I", to Kermit's dismay. nine0020

During the first season, the Biscuit Monster got its name and started yelling "Me want cookies!" (English I want cookies! ) - a phrase that later became an integral part of this character. The song "C Is For Cookie" was first aired in the 1971-1972 season and became one of Sesame Street's most famous songs. Very rarely on the set Korzhik eats real biscuits: mostly rice crackers decorated with traditional Korzhik cookies.

In "The Ready To Learn", a parody of Mission Impossible, Agent Cookie's entire body is shown. Other instances where Muppet legs have been shown are "The Street We Live On" (where Cookie pretends to be a child), episode #4075 (where he sits on a throne during his story), and "Abby in Wonderland". nine0020

Character Biography

In 2004, the English version of Sesame Street stated that before Cookie ate his first cookies, his name was Sid. Later they began to call him Elisha, and even later - Arnold.

Korzhik's birthday is November 2nd. Unlike the other Sesame Street Muppets, Korzhik has 5 fingers instead of 4. characteristic blue fur and have similar eyes. Korzhik's father appeared in one of the scenes shown under the heading Monsterpiece and promoted such important things for children to assimilate as saving electricity, conserving water resources and protecting the environment. Both Korzhik's mother and father have the same huge appetite. nine0020


In 1970, Chris Tavares wrote a program of the same name - Cookie Monster, which displayed the phrase "give me cookies" and blocked the computer until the user entered the word "cookie".

In 2006, in response to growing concerns about record levels of childhood obesity in the US, Sesame Street began airing Healthy Lifestyle Habits. Korzhik began to teach children healthy eating. He also appeared in the 518th episode of The Muppet Show, in which they joke that Cookie and guest Marty Feldman have the same eyes. nine0020

Cookie appeared on the June 19, 2008 episode of The Colbert Report defending his new view that cookies were "sometimes edible". Cookie ends the episode by eating the Stephen Colbert's Peabody Award.

In 2016, Apple released an advertisement for the Siri assistant starring Korzhik.

My steal cookies In Germany, Korzhik deprived a confectionery company of a monument with a cookie: Incidents: From life: Lenta.


the last hundred years. For several days, the police could not trace the suspects, but towards the end of the month, the kidnapper turned up himself and said that it was he who had stolen the gilded biscuits weighing about 20 kilograms. nine0020

What do we know about Korzhik? This is a shaggy blue monster from Sesame Street. He loves to eat, and often items unfit for human consumption, such as office supplies, end up on his menu. But most of all, Korzhik loves cookies, warm feelings for which he confesses every time he appears in the frame of a children's television program. When eating a cookie, the monster accompanies it with the words "My is a cookie!".

Everyone is used to the fact that Korzhik does strange things. But recently, he, or rather, a man dressed in a slightly modified costume (a monster follower chose a costume without signs of fluffiness) of this Sesame Street hero, stole the Bahlsen company symbol - a Leibniz cookie sculpture. nine0020

The participation of the German Korzhik in the theft of the monument is confirmed by the photographs received by the editorial office of the Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper and the Bahlsen branch - the monster is depicted in the pictures holding a gilded cookie in his hands and, as it were, biting into it.

In the text of the letter, made up of letters and words cut out from newspapers and magazines, Korzhik claims responsibility for the theft of the monument and demands that the confectionery company send cookies to the Hannover Children's Hospital (“Just send the ones covered with milk chocolate. With dark and they won’t go without chocolate! ”The author of the message clarified), and also donated a thousand euros, which she was going to give to someone who would help find the culprit of the loss, to an animal shelter. nine0020

The hospital, by the way, hastened to declare that it does not need any pastries and treats from Bahlsen, which has been helping the medical institution for many years, urged the company to ignore the monster's demands and called his behavior a provocation and extortion .

The kidnapper, however, did not forget to indicate what awaits the confectionery company if it does not fulfill the conditions put forward by him: Korzhik promised to give 20-kilogram cookies to Oscar, another hero of the children's TV show, known for living in a trash can and puts everything in there indiscriminately. nine0020

Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung published a photo of Korzhik with cookies and his letter, and also wrote that the police are already examining both for authenticity. In law enforcement agencies, by the way, they expressed doubt that the cookie was stolen by the very person behind Korzhik's funny face. The photographer, who was allowed to look at the sent frame, said that, of course, such a picture could be faked using a graphic editor, but most likely Korzhik would not do this - which means that he really has the sculpture. nine0020

However, they still failed to find the perpetrator: there was no return address on the envelope. And then Bahlsen decided to turn to Korzhik. An entry addressed to the big-eyed kidnapper appeared on the company's Facebook page.

“Dear Cookie! As you know, our company has long been engaged in charity work in the social sphere. We promise to all our fans that if you return our golden cookie to us, we will send 52 thousand packages of Leibniz to 52 different organizations, ”the message said. nine0020

Did Korzhik believe in the sincerity of the intentions of the German company or was his conscience stuck, but on February 4, the same German newspaper Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung received another letter from him. Created in the same way as the previous one, it reported that the intruder monster was ready to return the stolen goods. At the same time, he named pity for the head of the confectionery company, Werner Belsen, as the reason for his decision: “Verni misses the cookie very much and loves it as much as I do, and continues to suffer without it.” nine0020

It should be noted that this time Korzhik did not contact the company itself. Apparently, he was offended, as Bahlsen said that they did not intend to communicate with a cookie lover who was blackmailing them. Meanwhile, the police undertook to check the authenticity of the second letter from Korzhik. And the confectionery company is silent.

And while she is silent, the German media report that on the morning of Tuesday, February 5, a symbol of a biscuit manufacturer was found on a monument at the entrance to the main building of the Wilhelm Leibniz University.
