October 24, 2006 — Cookie Monster (David Rudman) watches Stewart make Mini Pumpkin Whoopie Pies (which he has dubbed as "whoopie cookies"), and promotes the Old School DVD set. Cookie Monster placed a more focused stress on eating healthy, but assured the audience, "me not going to change name to Brussels Sprouts Monster." Cookie Monster also talked about episode 4130 and that Gina is adopting a new baby, Marco.
In a "best of" collection of clips, Elmo also appeared in the recurring "Petkeeping with Marc Morrone" segment and learned how to take care of his pet goldfish, Dorothy. Originally aired on Martha Stewart Living.
While speaking at the 2008 Chicago engagement of Muppets, Music & Magic, David Rudman discussed Cookie Monster's appearance on the show, and stated he doubted they would be invited back, due to Stewart's displeasure of Cookie's behavior.
