Cookie Monster evolved from a monster created by Jim Henson for a General Foods Canada commercial in 1966. This character advertised the snack foods Wheels, Crowns, and Flutes along with two other monsters and was known as the Wheel Stealer. He then debuted on “Sesame Street” as Cookie Monster, a much bigger Muppet with blue fur, no teeth, and a floppy, expressive body. We know the googly-eyed blue cookie fan simply as “cookie monster” but that’s not actually his real name. His creators actually named him Sid but that name just proved less catchy than the easier-to-remember Cookie Monster.
