From Wikipedia:

According to Carvel lore, Cookie Puss is a space alien (his original name was “Celestial Person” and his initials, “C.P.”, later came to stand for “Cookie Puss”) who was born on planet Birthday. In his television commercials, Cookie Puss has the ability to fly, though he requires a saucer-shaped spacecraft for interplanetary travel.
