Video games ruin everything

As a Lord of the Rings ignoramus, I thank my sister for providing me with guidance as to the technical accuracy of this cartoon. I knew I wanted to do a Sonic cartoon of him stealing a ring. I knew Lord of the Rings was about rings. But that's it. Good thing she provides geek consulting support for me. Turns out that guy can't touch the ring or he will explode. Imagine the backlash I would have gotten if I drew a cartoon with him holding the ring with his hands? My cred would have gone out the window. Authenticity in lunchbox art - everyone needs goals.
