When I first heard this, I thought it was just dumb, but now that I think of it, it`s not too bad of an idea. I don`t think it`s blaming Cookie Monster for making kids obese, but just using him to demonstrate the importance of a balanced diet.

*grooooan* Now I`m all sad. That show was my favorite show when I was little. I loved Cookie Monster, and I`m -underweight-. Damn the terrible parents that occupy this world.

I am never watching Sesame street again! How could the show rob the world of that blue, fuzzy , cookie addicted monster? I can`t imagine a world without his cookie related rampages. OK, I easily can but I choose not to and I sure as hell don`t want to live it.

...Of all things...I always thought Sesame Street would stay untouched by our changing, politically correct, untamed, mindless, and stupid culture. I thought Sesame Street would stay strong against one stupid complaint from an overbearing protective mother who got her child fat by letting him eat cupcakes all day and not watch Sesame Street because it taught him to be "More Fat"...I guess I was wrong.

Oh well, Sesame Street went downhill by 2000 anyway.

RIP-Good T.V.

While the idea of a talking eggplant is amusing...taking the cookie out of Cookie Monster is just blasphemous.

Gee whats next Garfield will start to eat vegitables and vegitarian meals. I hope cookie monster is going to sing L is for my lawyer song.

No fast food company or junk food company should have to pay the price of fat children because they never learnt moderation. One other thing HE IS A PUPPET if you look really close he has never even eaten a cookie its fallen out of his mouth because he is not living, if children cannot see that they don`t need to put cookie monster on a diet, parents need to explain that hes not real.

Boooooo!!!!!! Monkey see, monkey do. That`s why the kids are becoming fat asses, they follow their parent`s example. How many thin, fit parents have fat kids? Not as many as the lard asses. USA is so politically correct and now `freedom` is just a word to sedate us enough for us to think that we are actually free. Talk about prude and too safe!! How come we had the cookie monster 30 years ago and the kids weren`t tubs of lard then?

OMG, that`s just stupid, I watched Sesame Street when I was a kid, my favourite character was the cookie monster, but I never had obesity problems.
People these days think that kids are brainless objects that will just mimic eveything they see.

Cookie Monster was not available for comment. (I`m hoping he hasn`t gone too Hollywood.)

"We are not putting him on a diet," said his spokesman, Truglio. "And we would never take the position of no sugar. We`re teaching him moderation."

haha....

I can see why they would need to do this, since alot of parents blame TV for their children`s problems, (*grumbles*) and I don`t see how it`s such a big problem....as long as they don`t actually call him `Fruit Monster` >_<

Puppet shows do not make children obese...bad parenting does.
