The blue Muppet known as Cookie Monster can be seen on the long-running children's television show Sesame Street, which airs on both PBS and HBO.
"Me want cookie!" is a well-known example of one of his many famous eating catchphrases.
The Cookie Monster is a cartoon character with a never-ending craving for cookies. He has blue fur all over his body and a pair of googly eyes.
As his name suggests, he eats almost anything, even things that aren't usually edible. However, cookies, especially chocolate cookies, are his favorite food.

Cookie Monster has a mother, father, a younger sister, and a few cousins — Cousin Monster, Biscuit Monster, and Apple Monster, a cousin from one episode. Furthermore, Cookie Monster has a nephew named Max Monster.
It would be inappropriate for us to discuss Cookie Monster if we didn't even know what his real name was, wouldn't it?
During an episode of Sesame Street that aired in 2004, Cookie Monster stated in a song that his name was Sid before he ever consumed his very first cookie.
Cookie Monster said in a tweet from 2010 that he wasn't given the moniker "Cookie Monster" at birth.
The tweet was posted on the Sesame Street Twitter page. The nickname just stayed over time.
The Cookie Monster grew from a monster designed by Jim Henson in 1966 for a General Foods Canada commercial.
Along with two other monsters, this figure was known as the Wheel Stealer and advertised the snack foods Wheels, Crowns, and Flutes.
The Wheel Stealer evolved further after appearing in an IBM ad and on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1967.
After losing his teeth, he eventually made his way to Sesame Street. By the second season, he had developed a fondness for cookies and earned the moniker "Cookie Monster."
The changes undergone by cookie monster over the years
In 1996, Cookie Monster was once referred to as the Wheel-Stealer in an advertisement that was never broadcast by General Foods for their Wheels, Flutes, and Crowns snacks.
In 1967, the cookie monster's teeth were still in place, and his fur was dark green with a few brown-black patches.
In Munchos commercials in 1969, a version of the Wheel Stealer puppet that looks smaller and younger is turned into Arnold.
During the first season of Sesame Street, the monster puppet becomes Cookie Monster when he grows back to his normal size and gets his signature blue fur.
This puppet is loose and flappy, which gives him much more expression, and his fur is rougher.
Years later, the puppet would be re-used as the Apple Monster.
At the end of the second season, a better Cookie puppet with a squarer jaw is made.
His eyes are now higher on his head, which means they are farther from his mouth.
Cookie's googly pupils have been a little lower for a few seasons, giving the impression that he's sometimes looking down.
This puppet is also used for Cookie Monster's mom in "Me Gotta Be Blue" and an angel in "Don't Eat the Pictures."
The cookie has been remade to look like the old puppet, but with brighter blue shag fur.
Since the 1980s, two subtly distinct Cookie Monster puppets have been used interchangeably: One puppet's mouth was bigger and wider when it first showed up in season 16. The other puppet's mouth was smaller and more curved when it first showed up in "Follow That Bird."
Cookie's googly pupils have shrunk overall, and his fur has become fluffier and lighter in color.
In episodes of The Furchester Hotel, a new Cookie puppet with a more round mouth and longer, frizzier fur initially appears.
Beginning with Sesame Street Season 46, the puppet is used more frequently.
Cookie makes his first appearance in season 46. He has darker blue fur and a squarer mouth than the puppet he replaces.
Almost everyone uses social media these days, whether they are young or old, male or female.
Cookie Monster is the same way. Could we say he has a lot of "influence"?
He has more than 8,718,481 likes on his Facebook page and more than 408,000 people who follow him on Twitter.
Since 2014, Cookie Monster's tweets have been incredibly funny.
People online often post funny Cookie Monster quotes and memes.
An example of this is the picture below.

As previously said, Cookie Monster is recognized as the world's biggest cookie fan. But it's not that simple. What about your health?
You're all aware that eating cookies all the time is unhealthy.
Also, that is not a lifestyle that should be promoted globally, especially for children who must learn healthy habits.
If you eat a lot of boxed cookies, the number on the scale may rise.
These store-bought cookies, for example, are a good example of processed foods, and many of them include high-fructose corn syrup.
One study found that mice fed high-fructose corn syrup acquired considerably more weight than mice fed table sugar, even though both groups consumed the same number of calories.
Cookies often do not include any fiber. A single portion of Chips Ahoy! cookies.
For instance, one serving of Original Chocolate Chip Cookies (which consists of three cookies) has less than one gram of fiber.
This lack of fiber will only cause problems for you in the long run.
The Cookie Monster is a well-known blue character from the Sesame Street television program for children who has an unhealthy obsession with cookies.
He doesn't gobble up all the food like Oscar the Grouch does out of greed. Instead, Cookie Monster's need to eat cookies quickly is probably caused by his genes, a chemical imbalance in his brain, or a very bad emotional or physical event.
He eats almost anything, even things that aren't supposed to be eaten. But, as you might guess from his name, cookies are his favorite food. His favorite kind are chocolate chip cookies.
After Cookie eats a piece of the lamppost on Sesame Street, Lopez comes back to say that Cookie is now "The Lamppost Monster."
Cookie Monster came from a monster that Jim Henson made in 1966 for a commercial for General Foods Canada.
This monster, known as the Wheel Stealer, advertised the snacks Wheels, Crowns, and Flutes along with two other monsters.
Cookie Monster is a live-hand puppet that was first performed by Frank Oz and is now performed by David Rudman. Originally, Cookie Monster was performed by Frank Oz.
Cookie Monster used to be a bad example that was meant to teach kids that they shouldn't always eat cookies.
Memes like "Without cookies I'm just a monster" teach an important lesson about self-control.
In fact, in 2005, Sesame Street began to focus more firmly on imparting positive health messages to children, a process that includes integrating segments into the program that emphasize the advantages of good eating, exercise, and proper sleep habits.
