YoB&E: Day 36--Fast and slow with Cookie Monster

While Ernie & Bert are well known as a pair, Ernie & Cookie Monster do a fair amount of sketches together too.

Cookie Monster can push Ernie's buttons in much the same way that Ernie pushes Bert's buttons. Thus the comic becomes the straight man, the trickster becomes the tricked, and Henson & Oz get to switch things up a little.

On the other hand, somehow Cookie Monster probably would have ended up getting all the cookies anyway, because that's usually what happens.

The pinky gag is really funny but somewhat problematic in that Cookie Monster has five fingers on each hand, while Ernie only has four.
