Cookie Monster and Elmo Crash the CBCC


Sesame Street Live's Cookie Monster and Elmo swung by the Children's Blood and Cancer Center yesterday at Dell Children's Hospital in Austin, Texas.

As you might expect, the sudden arrival of two enormous, non-human, red and blue fur balls equipped with oversized mouths (really great for eating cookies, not so great for vocalizing) was greeted with widespread initial suspicion.

But the suspicion didn't last for long. The patients, parents and staff at CBCC are a very accepting bunch. Before you knew it, Cookie Monster was so comfortable he was acting like he owned the place.

Despite a rocky start, when all was said and done the end result was hugs and smiles.
