Cookie Monster’s first special will premiere on PBS Kids on Feb. 16, the network announced Monday.

“The Cookie Thief” is billed by the network as a “nail-biting, cookie- munching thriller” where Cookie Monster explores self-regulation concepts such as impulse control, following directions and managing emotions.     According to information provided by PBS Kids, in “The Cookie Thief,” a cookie art museum has just opened on Sesame Street. Surrounded by beautiful cookie paintings like “Girl With the Cookie Earring” and the “Muncha Lisa,” Cookie Monster and his friends feel as if they’re in a whole new world.

However, when art suddenly starts to disappear, Cookie Monster quickly becomes a suspect and must clear his name or be banished from the museum forever.

Former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Rachel Dratch will guest star.

“We are excited to help kids learn self-regulation strategies through this wonderful Cookie Monster story,” said Carol-Lynn Parente, an executive producer of “Sesame Street.” “These are important skills that all kids need when starting preschool and throughout their lives.”

“The Cookie Thief” will be rerun Feb. 18 and 20.

The announcement came in connection with the Public Broadcasting Service’s presentations at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, which is being held in Pasadena.
