Frank Oz and David Rudman are both so soooooo identical sounding, it's pretty dang scary to think of but they're both funny, full of charm and very endearing in the role.

Joe Raposo just sounds laughably bad, I'm literally laughing at the clip so much. It sounds like he's got a sore throat though to be fair they hadn't quite figured out which sort of voice to go for yet.

That is very even between Frank and David, I think I was more familiar with Frank anyway I thought his clip sounds a bit better.

Joe sounds like Big Green.

Like everyone else said, Frank and David are on nearly level playing ground with this one. I think I like David a tiny bit more since he's the one I remember more from growing up and I feel like he gave him ever so slightly more personality and character with his vocal inflections.

As for Joe... Yeah, let's pretend that didn't happen.

Frank and David both rock but Frank's take made me laugh out loud from the clip and is overall the voice I more associate with Cookie Monster.

Anyone see the Frankie Boyle's Tramadol Nights parody?

Joe Raposo sounds really bad as Cookie Monster. This was the first voice they had & they hadn't quite figured out a voice for him. Safe to say, it wasn't the best fit.

Frank & David are pretty neck & neck as Cookie Monster. Pretty hard to decide between those two.

I think if you had to twist my arm & ask me to choose one, I think I'll choose Frank for this one.

God I love Cookie Monster, the voice and delivery never fails to make me smile.

Frank and David really are equally good, both nail everything that makes Cookie Monster lovable.

Joe, while being the first voice, really sounds off for the character. It sounds like he has a bad throat problem of some sort and it's really not that appealing to listen to.

Frank and David are near identical with how they sound and they both do an equally great job in the role, getting down the simple speech of the character while also being able to play up his crazy side well. Both add a lot of charm to the character
