What is the name of all things scared to my youth has PBS done now? Surely there must be another way to explain to children about eating healthy other than destroying my childhood image of the Cookie Monster? Who can’t remember that lovable blue fur-ball devouring a bag of cookies and as all the cookie crumbs flew everywhere?
“C” is and will always stand for COOKIE!!!
I had heard this story the other day but it slipped my mind until I was so devastatingly reminded today. A hat tip to McGehee at Yippee-Ki-Yay for reminding and saddening me both at the same time.
What is wrong with this picture? A Cookie Monster surrounded by Vegetables. The Celery Monster? The Tomato Monster? The Brussel Sprouts Monster (Oh, kids will love that.)
What’s next? Are they going to tell me, “Its not easy Being Green“?
Looks like OTB has got on the story too. Too bad he didn’t come here first.
