The premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is fast approaching, and the minds behind Sesame Street are marking the movie's release with a hilarious puppet parody entitled 'The Lord of the Crumbs.'
Starring the big blue eater himself, Cookie Monster goes on a journey to Mount Crumb to find his 'precious,' the recipe to the best cookies in all the land. Along the way he gets help from a Galadriel Muppet, and a Muppet of Gandalf the wizard.
The cookie-addicted Cookie Monster does a great impression of Gollum's addiction the ring in the Lord of the Rings/Hobbit Franchise. The five-minute short is also serves a teaching tool for memory recollection, as Cookie Monster has to think to remember all the ingredients to bake the cookies.
The Lord of the Crumbs is an extremely funny parody, both for children and the adults who've seen the films and read the books.
