Cookie Monster leads the pack in this nail-biting, cookie-munching thriller that guest stars Rachel Dratch of Saturday Night Live fame and celebrates the arts. Sesame Street: The Cookie Thief is a fun, action-packed special in which Cookie Monster explores self-regulation concepts – such as impulse control, following directions, and managing emotions. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Sesame Workshop, the non-profit, educational organization whose mission is to help kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder, will release Sesame Street: The Cookie Thief on DVD March 1, 2016 for $14.98 SRP.
In Sesame Street: The Cookie Thief, a cookie art museum has just opened on Sesame Street. Surrounded by beautiful cookie paintings, like “Girl with the Cookie Earring,” and the “Muncha Lisa,” The museum is full of excitement with learning opportunities around each corner. Cookie Monster and his friends feel like they’re in a whole new world. But when art suddenly starts to disappear, Cookie Monster quickly becomes a suspect. Can Cookie Monster clear his name? Will they find the missing art in time, or will Cookie Monster be banished from the museum forever?
“Warner Bros Home Entertainment is excited to share the latest addition to the Sesame Street collection, Sesame Street: The Cookie Thief,” said Jeff Brown, WBHE Executive Vice President and GM of Non-Theatrical Franchise Marketing. “Cookie Monster continues to help preschoolers develop essential skills in creativity and imaginative play all while keeping children laughing and having fun.”
