What kind of accent does Count Von Count (or perhaps other (stereo)typical vampires) speak in? If I remember correctly, it kinda sounds like Italian.

The biggest role model for all stereotype vampires is with no doubt the Hungarian Dracula actor Bela
Lugosi.

So i would say that Count Von Count speaks with an Eastern European accent.

Lugosi? That sounds familiar to me, but I'm afraid my memory could be wrong. The name reminded me something about Ed Wood.

Your remembering very well.
Bela was in some of Ed's movies.
Belas last role was in PLAN 9 FROM OUTHER SPACE.

Dear Jerry Nelson,

Thank you for everything. We have lost you so soon.

But now, I am glad for you, for now, everyone who has drifted into the rainbow connection- Jim Henson, Richard Hunt, your daughter Christina, will welcome you. And you will join them in watching over the new generation of Muppeteers who will maintain your legacy and characters with love.

Sincerely,
A dear fan of yours

He will be missed. If I could, I would play cermonial funeral bagpipe music in his honor. I think that's how he might have wanted it. Going out in a funny way.
