#76: THE COUNT
"Greetings! I am The Count. They call me The Count because I love to count things."
For almost 30 years, The Count has appeared on Sesame Street every day becoming the most watched vampire on television since Sam Donaldson. An odd vampire for sure, he has all the classic trappings...the Lugosi cape, sharp fangs, and an affection for bats, but the dude doesn't seem to ever drink blood. Nope...instead he has an obsessive compulsive disorder that makes him count every single damn thing he sees!
Though why put this counting skill to waste? I've asked The Count to do a special Entertainment Weakly column for this spot. ENJOY!
SPECIAL ENTERTAINMENT WEAKLY
Jerry Nelson is the voice and puppetmaster behind The Count.
