Sketches that take place at Count von Count's castle.
|Picture||Summary / First Appearance||Description|
|As ominous music plays, the Count walks around his castle, checks out the mirror (he has no reflection), and greets his bats. The mailman (performed by Jim Henson) arrives, with a bunch of letters for Count. The mailman wonders why there are so many letters. The Count says that he wrote them all himself, so he could count them... and then he does.
|The Count hires Ernie to answer the phone
|The Count hires Ernie to answer his phone so that he won't be bothered with calls while he is counting. However, when the phone rings, the Count wants to count the rings, and won't let Ernie pick up the phone until it's too late. "I told you it wasn't going to be easy," the Count explains.
|The Count extinguishes electric candles by counting them with his finger. But now that it's dark it is hard for the Count to see, as he heads up the stairs for bed, he steps on Fatatita. He also tells his wolf Yuba to run and play with his friends.|
|Bats get to count
|The Count's bats are upset; he always gets to count, but the bats don't. The Count decides to let the bats count all of the Counts, while the Count counts all the bats... but there's only one Count.|
|The Count has built a rocket with the help of Dr. Reinbrain and plans to launch it from inside his castle. The two count down from the computer console, but the rocket doesn't take off. Indeed, Count never intended for lift-off; he plans on counting down again and again.|
|Sheep on Strike
|It is time for The Count to go to bed, but his sheep go on strike and don't want to jump over his bed, so The Count calls in a substitute.|
|Outside a Castle
|The Count takes Susan Sarandon to a castle. He keeps knocking, just to count knocks, and Susan soon learns that it's his castle.|
|The Count invites the Countess to his castle to watch their favorite show, "twentysomething", where a couple (played by themselves) and Prairie Dawn learn that "twentysomething" is not a number.|
|The Count is all dressed up for Bat Day, which is when he takes his bats for an outing downtown. He counts the votes from his bats, which is more fun to him than an outing.|
|The Count's Fairytale Theatre
|The Count tells a new version of "This Little Piggy Went to the Market" for ten toes, and invites the viewers to count along. The little piggy who stayed home, did so to read a book: War and Pigs, and the tenth pig gets shot out of a cannon.
|The Count holds a counting class in his castle, where he teaches students the different ways they can count. The kids are very enthusiastic, but the Count goes too far when he forgets to dismiss class as he counts the school bell's rings.
