Cookie Monster charged with assault after pushing child in Times Square

Cookie Monster was arrested Sunday after allegedly shoving a child in New York's Times Square when his mother did not tip him for posing with the boy.

Monster, 33, was charged with endangering the welfare of 2-year old Samay Katkar, who had wandered over to the blue-furred beast when his parents ventured into town for a weekend trip. "The next thing I know, Cookie Monster had already picked up my son and was like, 'Come on, take a picture!'", Kurada told the New York Daily News.


  1. Between this, the fuckery with the guy who did Elmo’s voice and Gordon walking out on his long-term partner and leaving her flat broke, one can only wonder what’s next for the Sesame Street crew.

    Maybe Kermit is a secret serial killer, possibly Oscar is running a drug cartel –ay yi yi.

  2. Why is anyone surprised by this story? Not to be speciesist, but Cookie Monsters are still members of the family Monstrum, all the members of which are known for violent, sometimes antisocial behavior. “Monster” is right there in the name, people!

  3. Last year we had creepy anti-Semitic Elmo, and he was a New Yorker too. These guys should form a union – or maybe a buddy act.

  4. At any given time, a couple dozen, Elmos, Cookie Monsters, a really fucked up looking Big Bird, plus Dora the Explorers, Hello Kittys, Woody and Buzz Light Year, plus Statue of Liberty can be found wandering Times Square wearing “TIPS” labeled string packs, hustling visitors to pose in photos.  I cringe whenever I see them.
