Throwback Thursday: "Cookie Monster" IBM ad!

While Big Bird and Oscar appear in a new IBM ad, this isn't the first time someone from Sesame Street shilled for the tech giant. 

Before he was resident of the Street, heck before the street was even built, or before he had even gotten a proper name, the puppet that became Cookie Monster appeared in a 1967 IBM training film. 

"Cookie" performed a slightly altered version of the skit again that same year on the Ed Sullivan Show:

The same skit was later remade for The Muppet Show with Luncheon Counter Monster replacing Cookie Monster.
