In a late 1980s Sesame Street sketch, Susan Sarandon and the Count take shelter in a storm at the front door of an imposing castle. The Count knocks several times, counting the knocks as he goes. When it's clear that nobody will answer, Sarandon urges the Count to stop knocking. The Count says that he knows nobody will answer -- it's his castle. He was just knocking so that he could count the knocks. He then proceeds to count the numerous locks on the door as he lets them in. (EKA: Episode 2551)
The home video Elmo Says Boo! takes place at the castle.
Castillo del Conde Contar is the centerpiece of Parque Plaza Sésamo, the Mexican version of the Sesame Place theme park. The walk-through attraction is surrounded by a lake and large topiary numbers; visitors can explore the castle and look out at the rest of the theme park. Two rides are connected to the Castle -- Crazy Tower, a thrill ride, and Lago Contar, a water ride that brings visitors into the underground area of the Castle.
