^ What's the point of this post? Are we not allowed to be sad over someone who's work we enjoyed when we were little or something?

That's sad, I remember The Count being one of my favorite characters. RIP, Mr. Nelson.


Thank you based god
Aw, I loved The Count.

I'd say Jerry Nelson accomplished a lot in his time on the planet. He lived a great life.

How depressing.
What's worse is that I ended up watching my cousins, and when they were watching Sesame Street I noted that there was no Count von Count anymore.

Shameful. He was, like, the best character.

While I'm sure that Sesame Street will try to replace the Count, no one will ever be as wonderful as Nelson. Rest in peace.

...Wait, he's not on anymore?

He wasn't the last time I saw it.

Course it was like one episode or whatever but still. He used to be in all of them, no?


Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman.

In all seriousness, My deepest condolences to his family.

He did such a great job as Count Von Count, Herry Monster, The Amazing Mumford, and many other Muppets. He will be missed. :'(
