Season Overview

This season, in response to studies in child obesity in America, the key focus is healthy habits. Each episode began with a cold opening featuring a cast member (Muppet or human) mentioning a different healthy habit each time, whether it's exercise, food or sleep.

The season was met with wide reports that Cookie Monster would suddenly be executing a complete about-face: espousing healthy eating and moderation, trading in his trademark "C is for Cookie" in favor of a new song, "A Cookie is a Sometime Food," and (depending on the source) even going on a diet. For more on this issue see Is Cookie Monster now the Veggie Monster?.

New Elmo's World segments included the subjects of Cats, Cameras, Jumping, Skin, and School. New installments of "Global Grover" included visits to Bangladesh, England, France, Netherlands, and Tibet.

Parodies

Parody sketches and segments include "A Cookie is a Sometimes Food" (a parody of A Woman is a Sometime Thing), "Stretch, Wiggle, Yay!" (a parody of YMCA), "Dancin'" (a parody of Fallin by Alicia Keys), "Desperate Houseplants" (a parody of Desperate Housewives) "Grouch Eye for the Nice Guy" (a parody of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy"), Joe Hundred Guy (a parody of Joe Millionaire), "24" (a parody of 24) and a Grouch take on The Apprentice. A Dragnet spoof titled "Cookie Monster: Food Investigator" was announced for the season, but did not air.
