Sesame Street's 'Lord Of The Rings' Parody Is All About The Cookies

12/09/2013 03:22 pm ET

In Sesame Street's laugh-out-loud "Lord of the Rings" parody, Cookie Monster Gobble is a furry denizen of Monster Earth who will do whatever it takes to taste his "precious" cookies again.

Rated "DG" for "delayed gratification," the parody is part of the Cookie's Crumby Pictures series, designed to help kids learn self-regulation skills. Of course, the lessons serve as useful reminders for adults, too. When's the last time you got through a cookie recipe without sampling the "chocolate chippies"?
