"Transylvania 1-2-3-4-5" is an upbeat parody of Glenn Miller's "Pennsylvania 6-5000," performed by Lillian at Birdland, with the Count conducting the orchestra in a season 22 episode.

The Count counts past 5 at the end of each chorus, prompting Lillian to remind him each time that "the song stops at five!"

Elmo and the Count recorded a new version of the song for the 1997 Elmo Says BOO! album. This version was also used in the Sesame Place stage show Countdown to Halloween.
