"Counting Friends" is a Sesame Street song performed in a 2002 episode.

Big Bird sings as he counts all the friends he finds on Sesame Street. He adds himself and the viewer, then Telly, Elmo, Zoe and Rosita, then finally the Kids, making 10 friends.


  • This song would later be used in the online releases of episode 4163 and episode 4167 as a replacement for edited inserts.
