Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN What's the Word on the Street?: Texture

SCENE Cookie Monster strolls through the street, when he spots a delicious-looking bowl of fruit. Alan stops him, pointing out he's using it as for his painting. Cookie then tries to eat his painting, but Alan halts him once more. He explains paintings aren't for eating, they're to look at. When he looks at a painting, he feels happy. Cookie doesn't understand the whole "art" concept, so Alan thinks he'll get a better grasp on what he means if he paints something himself.

SCENE cont'd Alan provides Cookie with an easy, canvas, brush and paint pallet. Cookie is ready, but doesn't know what to paint. He doesn't wish to paint Alan's fruit, so Alan suggests he paint a cookie. No one knows cookies better than him, so he doesn't need one to base the picture on; he can just use his memory. He points out he lacks a cookie-brown in his paint, and Alan shows him how to mix some colors to create it.

SCENE cont'd Cookie's painting is completed and Chris marvels at it, claiming it's good enough to eat. Cookie thinks so too and, after singing a short song ("It Good Enough to Eat"), he eats the painting. Alan gets him another canvas and they try to think of a way he can control himself. They suggest he paint something other than a cookie, but all the things he sees remind him of them. Alan suggests he paint a self-portait, as he looks nothing like a cookie. Cookie likes the idea and hops to painting, and Alan helps him with a technique that'll show off the texture of his fur.

SCENE cont'd Cookie's self-portrait is finished, which Gina complements. She points out the eyes, which are exactly how they look when he sees a cookie. Cookie agrees and, now reminded of cookies, sings his song once more before devouring the painting. Their next idea is to have him paint a design so abstract that it won't remind him of cookies.

SCENE cont'd Cookie finishes making his design, which Big Bird stops by to see. Cookie states the painting is an expression of his joy of having cookies and his love of them. Now reminded of cookies again, he sings his song that'll lead into him eating the painting, until he finds a feeling inside. He realizes the painting makes him so happy, that he'd be sad if he eats it. He decides the painting is "Too Good to Eat" and restrains himself. Chris announces a fresh batch of cookies is ready at Hooper's Store and Cookie enjoys a brief moment with his art before scarfing all the cookies down.
