Run Cookie Monster Run by Jim Goren, Hank Lee

(c. 1977) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

In 1939 the Englishman Harry Leat invented what became one of the best and most enduring children’s effect of all time, to read more about the routine for this classic effect click here.

This version of Run Rabbit Run is great because not only do you have all the fun of the original, but you can have extra fun with the whole Cookie Monster theme. This may not be the strongest or best made version, but for sheer entertainment and story telling I think it is very hard to beat. No longer available, so difficult to track down. But if you see one, snap it up!

Effect: A kidshow classic, now updated and better than ever. It features a character who is a favorite with today’s kids – the monster who loves cookies! The monster’s house is on the left, the cookie bakery is on the right. Since the shop is closed, the monster is not allowed to have any cookies, and must stay at home. Oh, no – the kids see the monster sneaking across to the bakery! They call it to your attention, but the clever monster sneaks back, right beneath your nose…and then back to the bakery again. The more it happens, the more the kids scream and laugh. The monster even peeks out of the side of the bakery. Finally you open the door of the bakery and the door of the house at the same time, and the monster is…GONE!! You can then re-produce the lovable monster from your top hat, or any other amusing location you might think of.

RUN, MONSTER, RUN is a beautiful piece of construction, measuring a full 21″ wide by 10″ high. The front is built out of high-impact styrene, that will never chip, with wood and metal construction in back. The unit has been silk-screened in EIGHT different brilliant colors, making this.one of the most eye-catching kidshow props ever designed.

    Even better than Run Rabbit Run!

    I think that Run Rabbit Run is probably one of the best if not the best "Children’s Effects" ever devised. This version is even better because not only do you have all the fun of the original, but you can have extra fun with the whole Cookie Monster theme.

    This may not be the strongest or best made version, but for sheer entertainment and story telling I think it is very hard to beat. No longer available, so difficult to track down. But if you see one, snap it up!

    Could be dangerous to your health

    I bought one of these back in 1978. I was booked to do shows at a Pennys opening a Sesame Street Dept. I will never forget the frenzied yelling of the kids. They actually seemed mad about me being so stupid not to see Cookie Monster run back and forth. How many tricks get that kind of reaction?

    Hard to find but if you do get it you will love it

    This effect will have the kids yelling at the top of their voice and you are in control. If you find it get it ASAP even if you have to sell another effect. I have $20,000 in magic and this is in the top ten for me! Make sure that you pack it safe because it is made of plastic and can get bent out of shape. Mine has a special case I keep it in and it works fine.
