"Sesame Street" parodies "Lord of the Rings"

Monster Gobble needs to remember the precious cookie recipe and bake it in the fires of Mount Crumb

Just in time for the release of "The Hobbit," "Sesame Street" has released another kid-friendly parody -- this one of "Lord of the Rings," starring Cookie Monster as Monster Gobble. Though the plot veers from the Tolkien-book-based movie, Monster Gobble has lost his "precious" cookie recipe and is on a quest to remember it. Resisting a Hyde-like persona, Gobble must figure out how to bake his cookie in the fires of Mount Crumb (which is basically just an oven sitting next to him).
