Count von Count (also known as The Count) is a character from the television series Sesame Street. Introduced in the show's fourth season, he is a mysterious but friendly vampire-like Muppet who is meant to parody Bela Lugosi's portrayal of Count Dracula. The Count has a compulsive love of counting; he will count anything and everything, regardless of size, amount, or how much annoyance he causes others around him. Whenever he finishes counting, the Count laughs and announces his total (which sometimes appears on screen), usually accompanied by a crash of thunder and a flash of lightning.

Other Christmas productions

  • A Muppet Family Christmas - The Count and his fellow Sesame Street Muppets join Kermit and his Muppet Show co-stars at Fozzie's mother's farmhouse for Christmas. Upon seeing the snowstorm beginning outside the farmhouse, the Count begins counting all the snowflakes as they fall. Later, when Kermit and his nephew Robin are worried that Miss Piggy will not be able to make it through the blizzard, the Count does his standard counting bit with the both of them, much to the confusion of Doc from Fraggle Rock. At the end, during the Christmas caroling medley, the Count leads everyone in singing "I Saw Three Ships".
  • Christmas with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir - The Count and several of his co-stars made a special guest appearance at the 2014 concert.
