Sesame Street Cookie Monster Sings 'Hey Food'

Sesame Street Cookie Monster Sings 'Hey Food'

"Hey Food" is a parody of the Beatles' song "Hey Jude", as sung by Cookie Monster and the Beetles on Sesame Street, in which Cookie and the band sing the praises of comfort food.


  • The script for the song originally called for Cookie Monster to be joined by a female monster with an equally large appetite.[1]
  • At the end of the song, one of the drummer's drum sets can be seen falling off the stage.
