Who Took the Cookies? is a sing-along and game of children's music.

The song is an infinite-loop motif, where each verse directly feeds into the next. The game begins with the children sitting or standing, arranged in an inward-facing circle. The first episode used this is "Caring Means Sharing". The culprits were Baby BopKathy's Nana, and Juan.

Trivia[]

  • On the episode "Any Way You Slice It", the song's lyrics were edited to "Who Took the Cookies from the Lunch Bag?" The line; "It's you!" was also replaced with an extra "Then who?" because nobody knew who took the cookies that time.
  • Kathy and Min appeared in all episodes featuring the song.
  • As shown in the lyrics, Kathy was always the first one to get blamed for taking the cookies, while Barney was always the last one to get blamed for doing so.
  • In "Caring Means Sharing", Baby Bop ate all the cookies and got a stomach-ache, in "Grandparents Are Grand!", Kathy's Nana put the cookies into bags for the children to take home, and in "Any Way You Slice It", Juan says that he took the cookies because he was hungry and thought his older brother Carlos didn't want them anymore. Juan then apologized for taking the cookies and Carlos forgave him and reminded him to ask first the next time around.
