Benedict Cumberbatch faces his Muppet nemesis on 'Sesame Street' -- VIDEO

Who’s even more dastardly than the wicked Moriarty? That’d be Murray-arty, the Muppet alter ego who challenges Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch to solve a tricky mystery in the following clip: Does the table before them have more apples on it, or more oranges? (Turns out you can compare the two.) Because Cumberbatch, of course, isn’t really Sherlock Holmes — sorry to wreck the fantasy, guys! — he has to call in an expert to get the job done: Sesame Street‘s very own Count.

Can their combined brainpower crack the case? Find out by watching the Internet’s new favorite video below.


The Muppets Take Queens: Jim Henson props, puppets, and more are coming to New York

The Museum of the Moving Image in New York will have to build an entire new gallery to house the almost 400 Jim Henson puppets, costumes, and other items it is receiving as a donation from the Jim Henson family. The Jim Henson gallery of the museum is set to open in Queens the winter of 2014-2015 and Mayor Bloomberg has such high hopes that it will be a tourist draw that the City of New York is paying $2.75 million to the museum’s fundraising goal of $5 million.

The museum will be getting about 200 puppets, including Bert & Ernie, the Swedish Chef, Gobo Fraggle, Kermit the Frog, of course Miss Piggy, and many more. The items also span Henson’s entire film and television career, including props from The Muppet Show, Fraggle Rock, Sesame Street, and Labyrinth.

Here are some more memories:
