Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies have gone mainstream ever since the market exploded last year and major television shows have been talking about cryptocurrencies on a regular basis.

CBS sitcom Big Bang Theory had an entire episode last year on bitcoin where the characters search for a large amount of bitcoin they had mined in its early days.

Just last week, popular HBO show Silicon Valley aired a crypto-themed episode where the fictional company PiedPiper offers an initial coin offering (ICO) for their cryptocurrency PiedPiperCoin to raise money for their company. Over the last 12 months, several popular TV shows including Mr. Robot have featured cryptocurrencies.

Now, it’s Sesame Street’s turn.

No, the popular children’s program didn’t take time to teach toddlers about monetary policy, but mainstream financial publication Business Insider did devote a large portion of its recent interview with Cookie Monster (yes, that Cookie Monster) toward gauging the Muppet’s thoughts on bitcoin.

Shockingly, Cookie Monster did not know much about bitcoin. But he goes on to explain that he is familiar with the concept of “Bitcookie.”

“Me know about Bitcookie. Me know that me have cookie and me do this. That me bit cookie.”

Cookie Monster then goes on to talk about self-regulation — a key topic of discussion within the nascent cryptocurrency indsutry. He confesses that he has an issue with regulating himself. He explains, if he sees a cookie he’s not supposed to eat, he takes a step back and looks away. Then, he would eventually eat it.

“Me, OK, me do have issues with controlling meself. Fruit, cookie, fruit, cookie. Ah. This tough decision. So me got strategies me use to help me to control meself. Well, what me like to um, to control meself, me sometimes like to take deep breath. And it calm youself down. So like, if me saw a cookie right there, and me wanted to eat said cookie, me would just kind of take a little step back, maybe distract meself, maybe look away. No see cookie. Maybe sing a song. And then, after while, me can eat said cookie.”

Cookie Monster was on Business Insider to promote his new book, ’The Joy of Cookies’.

I would rather like to know what Oscar the Grouch thinks about cryptocurrencies and finance in general.

"Bitcookie" seems to be an interesting product) But I  agree that the thoughts of the participants of this show can not be taken into account when considering options for investing in cryptocurrencies.
