Episode Summary

Cookie Monster thinks the moon is a giant cookie and sets off on a mission to figure out how he could get to the moon so that he could eat it. While Gordon tries to tell him that the moon is not a cookie, he decides to just let CM find out and learn this on his own. Since Slimey has been to the moon before and Gabi is saying a nursery rhyme about the cow who jumped over the moon, CM asks them if the moon is a cookie. They don't know since they've never tasted the moon before. CM is still left wondering how he could get to the moon and find out if it is a cookie. Finally, Gordon enters with former astronaut, Buzz Aldrin, who explains to CM that the moon is made out of rock and while it is not a cookie, it is still a beautiful and exciting place that we could always look up at from the Earth. In the end, CM realizes that the moon is not a cookie and that he wouldn't even want to eat the moon since then, it wouldn't be there to shine down on the Earth anymore.
