Funko Gives All of Sesame Street a Black Eye (or Two), Except Cookie Monster



Now the other puppets really will be professionally jealous.

Funko’s Pop Vinyl has a signature feature of black dots for eyes – it’s part of the stylization that allows them to get around the fact that they don’t always have actor likeness rights. But Cookie Monster, apparently, is special – he gets to keep his regular “crazy eyes.”

I think the blue guy’s letting fame go to his head, with all the SNL petitions and Star Wars skits and such. Next thing you know, he’ll be demanding cookies that contain only brown M&Ms baked in.
