Cookie Monster Had Another Job
Speaking of lovable blue creatures, Cookie Monster wasn't an amateur when he joined the Sesame Street cast. In fact, he'd started his acting career almost three years prior, starring as "The Wheel Stealer" in an unaired General Foods commercial. He then went on to appear in an IBM training film and a Munchos commercial.
Cookie Monster is also the only Muppet character who has five fingers. Everyone else has four.
