It's the role he was born to play. In Sesame Street's Les Mousserables, Cookie Monster is "a French guy who was very sad because he had no cookies." Cookie's sensitive portrayal of Jean Bon-Bon also includes a range of other emotions, from confusion at other monsters' feelings to distress about the sheer amount of singing. Other Muppets who give notable performances include the tiny one, who plays Creamette, and the pink one with a hat, who takes on the role of Epienine.
