Sir Ian McKellen, a.k.a. Gandalf and Magneto, recently appeared on Sesame Street! Making sure to include Lord of the Rings references, though eventually diverging into educational territory, McKellen did his part in teaching Cookie Monster how to resist. Resist what? Well, cookies of course. The video is adorable and only a testament to Sesame Street's greatness. When you're able to incorporate both the One Ring and Ian McKellen into a show featuring a cookie-loving blue monster, I'd say that's a job well done.
