Times Square Cookie Monster
Goes to Jail

April 8, 2013 | Andy Cush

The latest in the seemingly endless barrage of Times Square mascots (and Sesame Street characters) behaving badly came this weekend, as a Cookie Monster named Osvaldo Quiroz-Lopez allegedly punched a two-year-old in the face. The exchange came to  blows came after the tot posed for a picture with Quiroz-Lopez and his mother refused to cough up the $2 the Monster demanded. Natch.

Just to review, in the past months, we’ve had a Spider-Man who punched a mom, an anti-semitic Elmo, a pervy Super Mario, and a mascot who said his fellow characters were all “degenerate crackhead alcoholics.”

ANIMAL put together a photo essay of the degenerates last fall.
