The Cookie Monster is an obese and gluttonous aging crime boss with a mind ravaged by several strokes, brought on by a traitor in his outfit who has been lacing his chocolate chip cookies with acid, marijuana, cocaine, meth, and PCPs. The dying Godfather, demented and irrational, must fend off incursions into his territory and business interests by rivals Elmo, a hyper-active and sadistic Cuban drug-lord, and Oscar the Grouch, a powerful mobster who evades the authorities (specifically Detective Sherlock Hemlock) by pretending to be a crazy homeless man.
The Cookie Monster's gang is head-quartered in the basement of The Rubber Duckie, a gay/drag-club owned by the high-strung and hypochondriacal Bert, and Ernie, his flamboyant longtime companion and occasional drag performer the club. The bandleader at the club, saxophone player Hoots, and the head-waiter (and Cookie Monster's nephew) Grover, are also low-level associates of the crime family, unbeknownst to Mr. Johnson, a lecherous and unpleasant frequenter of the club who meets an equally unpleasant end due to his inability to pay for the male hustlers supplied to him by Cookie Monster. Trash TV talk show host Guy Smiley is equally punished by the outfit for failing to make good on his gambling debts, but TV reporter Kermit agrees to portray the family in a positive light in exchange for bribes.
Other members of The Cookie Monster's organization include his underboss Herry, a black-magic practicing Gothic pimp called The Count who trusts no one and obsessively counts and recounts his profits and slaps around his working girls Zoe and Rosita, The Cookie Monster's nephew Telly who is also a gun-toting paranoid conspiracy theorist and right-wing militia member, and Big Bird, a contract killer and enforcer who occasionally sees and receives commands from Snuffelupagus in drug-induced hallucinations.
