Just four days before the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (yes, I already bought my ticket), the brilliant folks at Sesame Street dropped a parody of the impossibly popular Lord of the Rings franchise. In its version there are lessons to be learned, of course, but not at the expense of humor. Middle Earth is now Monster Earth and the protagonist of this mini-epic is Gobble, played deftly by Cookie Monster. Interestingly, though, Gobble is sort of a mash-up between Frodo and Gollum. There are other light-hearted plays at work as well, but we’ll let you see them for yourself. Enjoy!
