why didn’t they just fly Frodo to Mount Doom?

It’s one of those classic imponderables, like Why is the sky blue? and How do they get those ships into the bottles? — Why didn’t the eagles just fly Frodo to Mount Doom?

Well, a cartoonist calling himself The Big Movie Freak thinks he has the answer. Enjoy.

So was Frodo a hoopy as well? I don’t recall anything in the movies that would indicate that he knows where his towel is.

Yeah, us cool froods definitely know where our towels are. Mine’s at home, in the bathroom… no RBBoTs here. Frodo’s towel was around his neck… cleverly disguised as a cape.

I always reckoned the reason for not just using the eagles to fly Frodo and company to Mt. Doom is that Sauron would have an easy time taking them out. The only way for them to sneak in was to sneak in…

Okay, very funny. I fixed my typo.
