Horror 

Count Von Count - In 1972, the children's program SESAME STREET/PBS/1969+ introduced their muppet version of Dracula called Count Von Count who was fashioned after the classic Bela Lugosi characterization complete with a Transylvanian accent.

Count Von Count - SESAME STREET

The Count's obsession wasn't sucking blood but rather counting numbers. As he often said "I love to count! 1,2,3,4,..."

The Count once went to his bank and withdrew his entire account asking the teller to give him only one dollar bills. After all of the money had been counted, he re-deposited the money, gleefully counting the money over again in front of the perplexed bank teller. Count Von Count counted only to 20 at first.

In 1986, The Count took viewers up to 40 to find the cookbook page with a recipe for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
