0153 Pile of cookies.jpg
Muppets Gordon and Cookie Monster see a big pile of cookies. Cookie asks for one cookie, and saves it for later because he does not want to ruin his supper (which will be cookies). Then he wants another, because one cookie makes him a little happy, but two would make him happier. As Gordon puts cookies in Cookie's bag and then takes them away, Cookie becomes more happy with more cookies and less happy with less cookies. When Cookie has all the cookies in his bag, he is very happy, but decides there is a better place to put the cookies than the bag ... his tummy.
