You gotta love Benedict Cumberbatch.

The actor, who isn’t afraid to poke a little fun at his Sherlock persona, appeared on Sesame Street to take on Murray-arty, a devious Muppet who issues a “brain-bending challenge” to Cumberbatch.

Murray- arty places apples and oranges on a table and asks “Benedict Sherlock” if he can deduce which there is more of.

“I’m going to need some help,” Cumberbatch quips before he introduces Sesame Street’s The Count. Benny solves the problem, showing us he’s one smart man. But the short video was further proof that fans are right to love him so.
