Watch The Beastie Boys Perform “Cookie Puss” With Kate Schellenbach In 1983

Here’s a rarely-seen video of the original line-up of the Beastie Boys – when they had a fourth, female member, Kate Schellenbach – playing a Christmas-time gig in 1983. The song was inspired by a series of prank calls the group’s members made to a Carvel location, in which they jokingly requested to speak to Cookie Puss, the most popular ice cream cake character. Kate went on to drum with Luscious Jackson and went on to later works as a producer for The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Lopez Tonight, Kathy, Love You, Mean It with Whitney Cummings, Chelsea Lately, Hello Ross, and currently The Late Late Show with James Corden.
