    No. He is still called cookie monster, but he eats healthier now.

    Thats just wrong! I heard it was so it doesnt give kids the image that they should eat cookies all day. What parent would let them do that?

    oh cookie what have they done to you now u eat fruit and it just ain't right. yes he has now been dubbed veggie monster. and yes he still eats cookies every once and a while but it's not just cookie monsters fault it's also the parents fault for not saying no. you can't blame a puppet for your childs habit's that they got from you.

    Well, the thing is...some kids did stupidly emulate some of the characters on the show (ex: kids emulating Don Music's headbanging tantrums), but those characters were removed. However, because obesity has become a growing problem--no pun intended--what better way to get kids to get slimmer & inform them to take things in moderation than to have an iconic character with a similar problem do the same?
