It’s true, Cookie Monster’s real name is Sid!
When the now iconic fuzzy blue monster first appeared, he was an undefined character.
After viewers responded positively, the character became the Cookie Monster. It wasn’t until a skit until 2004, nearly forty years after the first episode of Sesame Street premiered, that Cookie Monster told his fans through song that he wasn’t born with the name “Cookie Monster” and that he may have been called “Sid”
In 2010, the Cookie Monster Tweeted the following:
“Me wasn’t born with name ‘Cookie Monster’. It just nickname dat stuck. Me don’t remember me real name… maybe it was Sidney?”https://muppet.fandom.com/wiki/Cookie_Monster
He confirmed this fact in 2017 in response to a Fan question through Google!
What do you think, is Sidney a good name for the cookie fiend we know and love?
