Here’s an IBM training video circa 1967 starring something very much like Cookie Monster. He still has his teeth in this one, so he still looks a lot like the monster from the ad for Wheels, Flutes, and Crowns.
Marc Schuster was the author of The Singular Exploits of Wonder Mom and Party Girl and The Grievers. He now records music under the name Zapatero.

Classic! I believe that’s Jim Henson voicing the computer.

Aha! The next time I clear out my cookies, I’ll think of the cookie monster.

Ha! I guess Jim Henson was further ahead of his time than I thought!
