Cookie Monster is a contestant on a TV quiz show hosted by Guy Smiley. When Cookie Monster is declared the winner, Guy Smiley gives Cookie Monster a choice of a world tour for himself and his friends or a delicious chocolate chip cookie as his prize. The gang urges Cookie to take the trip, telling him about all the kinds of food he can sample in different countries. Cookie Monster picks the trip, and his friends travel around the world.
