The Monster decided to do an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on ​​Reddit, or a thread in which anyone can ask the character something. I was advertising for a contest to raise money for the Yellow Feather Fund, an initiative that helps vulnerable children. The winner of the contest, which has already closed, can go with a friend to the set of Sesame Street to eat cookies with the Monster.

To confirm that it was him, the Monster put a link to his official Twitter in which he announced that he would perform an AMA. It is clear that the Monster does not just think of cookies!

Below are some of the questions the fans asked the monster and his answers.
