How much do we love Sesame Street's Count Von Count? Let us count the ways!

First off, he's one of of the only vampires on TV who can do interviews during the day. Which is a good thing, since his landmark show is basically the morning show for the diapered set. Secondly, he's the best thing to happen to numbers since the Egyptians came up with their concept.
