Does The Count…Count (For The CDT)?

The first two names on the current Celebrity Death Trifecta are obvious.  I have a suggestion for #3.

  1. Phyllis Diller (comedienne)
  2. Neil Armstrong (astronaut)
  3. Jerry Nelson?

You may not know the name, but you certainly know his voice!  Maria blogged about the passing of Jerry Nelson earlier this morning.  Jerry was the voice of many famous television puppets: Gobo on Fraggle Rock, Floyd on The Muppets and Mr. Snuffleupagus on Sesame Street.  But, he’s best known as the voice of Count von Count.  (Did YOU The Count had a last name?  I didn’t!)

He sure loved to sing!  Enjoy some of Jerry’s best work, including my all-time favorite from the Count:


Floyd’s tribute to George Harrison and The Beatles:


Gobo sang some songs, too:
