In a classic 1973 clip from Sesame Street, a little girl named Joey was singing the ABC song with Kermit the Frog. All was going well until Joey stopped and inserted “Cookie Monster” as a letter of the alphabet. Kermit gently corrected her, but Joey was insistent about Cookie Monster. When he’d finally had enough of his sweet-toothed blue friend, an insulted Kermit stormed off but quickly returned with a forgiving heart in order to say “I love you too”.
Joey: Now I’ve sung my ABC next time Cookie Monster giggling.
Kermit – Next time Cookie Monster, will sing with you, I’m leaving.
Joey – I love you.
Kermit – I love you, too.
Joey – Thanks.
