KermitGollum
Mordor

The Lord of the Rings is a fantasy novel published in three parts by J.R.R. Tolkien between 1954 and 1955. It tells the story of a magic ring forged in evil to command the inhabitants of a fantasy land called Middle Earth, and the journey of those who would stand against it.

References

  • A sketch known as "Monster Eats Machine" performed on The Ed Sullivan Show was written with a fair amount of nonsense technical speak. As such, several jokes and references were tossed into the dialogue. Lewis Carroll's mome raths are mentioned along with the phrase "Gandalf pentameter," a reference to the wizard Gandalf in Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.

Mentions

  • Weta Digital provided CGI characters for Peter Jackson's film version of the trilogy. During production of the second film, digital stand-ins were required for the all-CGI character Gollum who would interact with live actors. For some scenes, Kermit the Frog was used in Gollum's place as a joke by the animators. Footage of Kermit as Gollum was shown during the 2003 Game Developers Conference.
