Watch: Cookie Monster in 'Sesame Street's 'Lord of the Rings' Parody

December 11, 2013

Lord of the Crumbs

This week, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters, and in honor of the Middle-Earth set trilogy, the folks at "Sesame Street" decided to reach back into cinema's past to parody Lord of the Rings, the trio of tales that actually follows The Hobbit in J.R..R. Tolkien's fictional timeline. Much like their recent parody of The Hunger Games, this segment takes cues from the aforementioned Peter Jackson films, and mixes them with lessons for kids in Lord of the Crumbs. This lesson is about self-control and delayed gratification to wait for something delicious like a cookie, which proves difficult for someone like Cookie Monster, who plays a character called Gobble, on a quest to bake cookies ("Me precious!"). It's pretty cute.

Here's the "Sesame Street" parody of Lord of the Rings with Cookie Monster (via THR):

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit… J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, is set in Middle-Earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest cameras. The Hobbit follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug lands in theaters in 3D & 48FPS on December 13th.
