The Gingerbread Man appears in the "Smart Cookies" segment of the same name. He is based on the titular character of the fairy tale, The Gingerbread Man.
He visits the city track to practice running for an upcoming race. He calls upon the Smart Cookies team to keep the Crumb from disrupting him. Sure enough, the Crumb invades the area and whips out his icing, which freezes the entire track. The Gingerbread Man starts sliding around the track and calls for help, concerned with getting a boo-boo.
After some missteps, Cookie Monster and Chipowski save the Gingerbread Man with a pair of ice skates, tossing him safely off the track. His relief is temporary though, as a hungry Cookie Monster starts pursuing him.
He appears in The Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo as an audience member.
