This is really a really tough decision. Big Bird is of course Big & has more range. Cookie Monster is undoubtedly a psychopath so I don't know. I'm pretty sure Bird is a pacifist though so Cookie probly would tear Bird a new asshole. Especially if he imagined Bird as a giant chocolate chip cookie.
Cookie is a lovely, polite little puppet one second, and a growling, manic devouring machine the next. Big bird lacks that kind of passion. He's nothing special. And Cookie is fucking devoted to those cookies. What does big bird care about? He's got no motivation. He's not thinking "as soon as I knock that bitch down I can go have a cookie" now, is he?
coachella forum, i love you so much. you never fail to disappoint.
yes cookie monster. of course. i am fairly convinced that he could take pretty much ALL the muppets without batting his nonexistent eyelashes. perhaps miss piggy being the only exception to this rule. the reason i put big bird as his sparring partner is that i think big bird might be just a tad unstable. and not just a tad actually, but like, WAY unstable, like on the inside. i think he has a lot of unchecked rage and also perhaps daddy issues. let's not forget also that he hallucinates a giant imaginary playmate, like pretty much on a daily basis. we're talking borderline personality here people. a regular ticking time bomb. and so i would love to see what he'd do in a fight if someone pushed him to his breaking point...
As we all know cookie monster is a massive junkie. Sooooooo....... What if we were to deprive C-Monster of his precious cookies for, i dont know, say, 3 days. We could then inform him that his precious cookies are tucked away inside the belly of the titanic canary. The ring would be nothing but bloody feathers in seconds.

I suppose it's also worth mentioning that because Big Bird has nothing to care about, he also has nothing to lose. However, I see this more as an overall indifference towards things and people, and not necessarily an indifference towards being alive. I bet he'd get outta dodge the second he heard a growl. Maybe Fiji or someplace like that. Although maybe he wouldn't have to go that far. While Cookie is quick to anger, he's also probably quick to cool down. If Big Bird wasn't there for the initial fire up, he might make it out ok.
For some reason I am imagining Big Bird in a hotel room, a la the end of "The Good Girl". Maybe in a hawaiian shirt.
As a child, my favorites were Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch, by far. I remember one Christmas I got this Sesame Street playset, and it was pretty awesome to me, and it and had little versions of the characters. And I had this really weird toy, I'm not sure what to call it, but it would play records and some kind of film so I got to see stuff too, no idea what it was called.
