Sesame Street

Silence, a marathon runner jogs up to the camera, a seven on his shirt.

Jazzy music starts, numbers 1-10 flash on jazzy background.

Two hands up, fingers pop up one at a time as female voice and number above the hands count to ten.

Jazzy numbers again.

Numbered racecars pull up, voice sings 1-10.

Huge 7 is drawn on screen, voice sings "Seven!"

Seven parts like curtains to reveal a wizard with 7 on his hat and cloak. He bows to reveal he has a 7 on his bald head as well. Then he parts his cloak to reveal another room with an identical wizard inside. Voice says "Seven," slowly.

New wizard takes off his hat, gestures, and seven rabbits leap out and pile into a stack on the floor.

A turtle with a 7 on his helmet races through, running into the stack and pushing it away. Voice calls, "Seven!"

Wizard pulls out a playing card - the 7 of clubs - he lowers it to the ground and it becomes huge and all the clubs on it turn into little black birds. Voice says, "Seven?"

Wizard opens card like a door, revealing a red hallway. Birds flutter in, wizard closes door, which now has a large black 7 on it. Then the card sucks up into the wizard's hand.

Wizard makes a 7 appear on each side of him, then makes a flash of light towards us that fills entire screen. When light clears, we see wizard fall from sky, and pick himself up again, then we pull back as the first wizard closes his cloak again. Voice sings, "Seven!"

Jazzy numbers again.

10 spies, opening their coats one at a time, revealing the numbers 1-10, as voice counts/sings 1-10.

Then the spies fade away, and the numbers grow in size until they black out the entire screen.
