In an edition of The Count's Storybook Theatre, The Count reads The Magnificent 7. The story tells of a sad and lonely group of Transylvanian villagers (who all bear the Count's distinctive laugh). One of the villagers proclaims that the only thing that can save their village is the Magnificent 7, so people from far and wide places can come to see it. Just then, a magnificent fanfare is heard and a number 7 enters, but it's grungy appearance is not deemed as magnificent. Then, another fanfare introduces a fancily dressed number, but it's the number 5. After a third fanfare, the sparkling Magnificent 7 appears, to the delight of the villagers, and they were never lonely again.

The story is a loose parody of The Magnificent Seven, a 1960 western featuring Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, and James Coburn, with a musical score composed by Elmer Bernstein.
