Hey, I had that same Cookie Monster when I was little. The string brings his arms in so it looks like he's patting his tummy. And I have Ernie now, (thanks JohnnyStorm), and one of my kids today (upon my return to work) said, "Did you bring the Ernie puppet?"
"Do you believe, you believe in magic?
'Cos I believe, I believe that I do,
Yes, I can see I believe that it's magic
If your mission is magic your love will shine true."
Cool... I had the Ernie one!

Feelin' that 'luv' from Roosevelt. Right back at'cha lil man.
It's not how hard you hit, but how hard you can be hit and still move forward.
I still have my Ernie, Bert, Cookie, Oscar, Big Bird and the Count from when I was a kid...And I picked up Roosevelt Franklin this year...
Think OUTSIDE the Box! For the BEST in Repro & Custom Packaging!
I would love all of these again! I had them as a kid. Are they throwing gang signs?
I had the Bert, Ernie and Cookie Monster, and I managed to find an Ernie at a yard sale for my daughter. They don't make 'em like this anymore!!!
I agree, gotta love the Rosevelt. Old school street.

To think we've gone from this to FAO Schwartz giving you the ability to make your own Muppet.
I had three out of those four pictured as a kid. I wanted the Roosevelt one, too, but I had to decide between Cookie and him and Cookie won out.
