Fact of the Day: Sid Monster

While the Cookie Monster is one of the most popular Sesame Street characters, his real name wasn't known until 2004. In a song, he admits that before he ate his first cookie, his name was Sid.

Somehow the name Sid just doesn't seem right. It doesn't quite suit him.

How the hell has Dezzy never heard of Cookie Monster? That's more shocking than learning about the stupid name they gave the blue guy!
