“Sesame Street: The Cookie Thief” Free Preview Screening Feb. 10

In his first full-length “Sesame Street” special, everyone’s favorite sweet-toothed monster is in the midst of a rather “jarring” experience.


Just after the Museum of Modern Cookies — filled with beautiful cookie paintings, like Vincent Van Dough’s “A Starry Cookie Night” and Leonardo da Crunchy’s “Muncha Lisa” — opens, the artwork suddenly starts to disappear!


And, of course, the first suspect everyone’s minds turn to is our furry, cookie-gobbling friend … 


But who really did it?


Is it another cookie lover?


Could Cookie Monster have an evil twin?


Are otherworldly creatures invading?


You’ll have to wait a bit to see …


But, the good news is that we’re having a sneak preview of the nail-biting, cookie-munching thriller in AETN Studios on Tuesday, Feb. 10, from 10 - 11:30 a.m. Bring your little ones for crafts, snacks and a fun, family-friendly movie that explores self-regulation concepts — like impulse control, following directions and managing emotions — and celebrates the arts!


(Cue your happy dance …) 


To reserve your spot or get more details, email our Early Childhood Specialist Amy Routt at or call 1-800-662-2386. We can’t wait for you to join us!

Can’t make it to AETN Studios on Feb. 10? No worries! We’ll be airing “The Cookie Thief” on Monday, Feb. 16, so that you can watch or record at home, too.

Another special bonus? When you go to explore art on your own at the Arts and Science Center for Southeast Arkansas in Pine Bluff, South Arkansas Arts Center in El Dorado or Fort Smith Regional Arts Museum, be sure to ask, first, about the amazing art around you, and, then, for a special “Sesame Street: The Cookie Thief” coloring page!
