"Ichi, Ni, San" is a song from the Sesame Street special Big Bird in Japan.

When Big Bird visits a household in Japan, he learns basic Japanese words from two kids, such as ichi-ni-san (一二三) for one-two-three, ohayō (お早う) for good morning, arigatō (ありがとう) for thank you, sayōnara (さようなら) for goodbye, dōzo (どうぞ) for please (go ahead). The kids give Big Bird a test, and he manages to answer all the questions correctly, even counting the numbers in Japanese backwards.
