SCENE 1 Cookie Monster is waiting for the arrival of his country cousin, Apple Monster. He tells Luis to keep a look out for him, though Luis suspects this is some sort of scheme to get cookies. A moment later, a monster resembling Cookie appears, dressed as a country bumpkin. Luis assumes this "Apple Monster" is really Cookie in disguise and baits him with a cookie from his lunchbox. "Cookie yuchhy!" replies Apple Monster, who instead wants the apple Luis has. Apple Monster eats it up to the core to Luis' surprise.
