If this is your first time here, you’re going to want to catch up with the previous episodes!
**NOTICE: You are not crazy – if you are looking for the 8th Episode, it currently does not exist, and yet I somehow managed to skip it and keep counting. So today, I learn to count with some special helpers.**
This week, we’re interviewing the following characters:
Count Von Count (aka: ‘The Count’ Sesame Street)
Special Agent Oso (yup, yet again, Sean Astin comes into this, but sorry he’s the annoying pedantic version of himself and not the cool other animated character – Raph has to wait a bit longer)
