(CNN) — Happy Birthday, Cookie Monster!
The lovable Sesame Street character took up residence on “Sesame Street” in 1969 but celebrates his birthday every Nov. 2.
His age is still a mystery.
Like Any “Sesame Street” resident, Cookie taught his young audience about the way the world works.
More than 30 years into his run, Cookie adopted some healthy habits, partially due to rising child obesity rates.
The big blue character even made a rap song about the virtues of eating a diet rich in fruits, veggies and meat.
Cookie Monster is known for hollering “Me Want Cookie,” but maybe today he will eat a birthday cake.
