Cookie Monster buys some cookies for dinner, but starts craving them earlier, and asks Big Bird to hold them for him until dinner. Big Bird refuses, because he knows that Cookie Monster will keep begging and trying to trick him into giving them to him until he gives in. Oscar the Grouch agrees to hold them, telling Big Bird that he likes to say "No". Cookie Monster tries to trick Oscar with a variety of disguises, but Oscar doesn't fall for any of them.
Frank Oz recorded the voice of Cookie Monster, and Caroll Spinney the voices of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch, for the accompanying cassette tape. On the tape, Big Bird sings "He Loves His Cookies", and Oscar sings "I Love to Say No", both by Dave Conner.
