One does not simply ignore Sesame Street's new Lord Of The Rings parody

The best kids programing manages to keep the adults watching entertained too, and Sesame Street has found the perfect way to combine pop culture parodies for parents with observational skills for kids. In the latest video, “The Lord Of The Crumbs”—a delightful take on The Lord Of The Rings—Gobble (Cookie Monster) has to remember a lost recipe in order to bake his “precious” cookies in the “fires of Mt. Crumb.” It’s a lesson in delayed gratification, memory recall, and a bit of math as well.

While the parody isn’t as detailed as “Homelamb” or “The Hungry Games,” it does have a pretty great riff on Gollum’s internal struggle, and Gandalf and Galadriel make appearances as well. Anyone actually looking for a new chocolate chip cookie recipe, however, should not follow this one, which amounts to three eggs and two cups of “chocolate chippies.”
