Gonger, to me, has the benefit of being paired with a popular, established character like Cookie Monster to help bolster his appeal a little bit - not only like how Abby was almost immediately always paired with Elmo when she joined . . . of course, that was pretty much intentional: that was when they were in desperate need of a female Muppet to achieve the level of star-power that Elmo has.
