Episode Summary

Uh-Oh! The Count has to leave his Counting Booth and has no one to watch it while he is gone. Luckily, Elmo and Abby agree to become the official Counting Booth Counters while he is away.

They help the Three Little Pigs count themselves one by one to make sure they are all there. They help Old McDonald count his chickens in pairs: groups of two. They help Baby Bear count out all his crayons by fives. And as if that weren't enough, Snuffy and Big Bird can't figure out how many fingers all the birdkeeters have together. (Elmo and Abby suggest counting by five, but Maria has a better suggestion: Why not count by tens?)

Finally, Super Grover needs a count down to fly off and save the world. With some help from Super Grover and a number line, Elmo and Abby are able to count down to one as Grover blasts off. When the Count returns, he's so proud!
