Vampire Legends: Jerry Nelson (Countdown to Halloween)

Sesame Street The Count von Count Jerry Nelson

Count von Count made his debut on Sesame Street in 1972, voiced by Jerry Nelson. Along with Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch, the Count was one of my favorite Sesame Street Muppets growing up. I did not understand the significance of a vampire counting back then, though, and most still do not. Evidently, one way to defend yourself against a vampire is to keep a pocketful of seeds, and when he comes to attack, throw the seeds on the ground. The undead suffer from an obsessive compulsive disorder, and must count things. So while he is counting the seeds you tossed on the ground, you can make your escape!
