As a child, my favorite googley-eyed muppet on Sesame Street was Cookie Monster. For those not in the know, chocolate chip cookies are his favorite kind and oatmeal cookies are his second favorite. Showing awareness of healthier habits, since 2006 he has said that cookies are "a sometime snack" and that he also enjoys fruits and eggplant.
But Cookie Monster didn't always love cookies. In one song, he revealed what name his parents had given him, before he discovered his love for cookies.
One point to the person who correctly identifies Cookie's original name in the comments of this post. An additional point for identifying the individual who first provided Cookie's voice, for over thirty years. Remember: No googling for the correct answers! The first correct answer for each question wins. Winners need not answer both questions to earn points.
