(Marley) "Thank you Count!   I have long admired yer episodes and yer night-time habits!  I have to credit this episode to Snow, Basements, and the number "4".

We had a recent heavy snow here, and some regular outside field mousies needed shelter.  So they came into my basement seeking "shelter from the storm".  I was VERY pleased to meet them.  All cats LOVE mousies...

So today kittens, we will practice our numbers 1 -4.  That is: 1, then 2, then 3, then 4!  Are you ready to count?

First, "ONE MOUSIE". ..
 Second, "TWO MOUSIES"...
Third, "THREE MOUSIES"...
And fourth, "FOUR MOUSIES!

Wow, FOUR mousies in one day!

So kittens, that is how to count to "FOUR"!  How about that?  Did you learn something today?  Can you count to "FOUR" now?  I hope you can now. 

When you grow up, someday you will catch mousies on yer own and be able to count them yerselfs!"

End of show, as mayhem breaks out on the Sesame Street stage.  The Count claiming he was duped, the rodent actors walking off in protest,  and the stage cats re-considering their loyalty to the rodent actors...

Marley teleports home in triumph, secure in his fame as a hunter...
