Benedict Cumberbatch faces Muppet nemesis on 'Sesame Street'

Posted on

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.
