This counts as fun: 'Sherlock' star Benedict Cumberbatch, Muppets do math

PBS paired some of its greatest television talent for an entertaining new video aimed at solving some simple math. Presented with the problem by his "arch-nemisis" Murray-arty, "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch cracked the case of apples and oranges with the help of The Count.

Murray-arty laid out his "brain-bending challenge" for Cumberbatch (er, Benedict Sherlock) in the form of a line of fruit. "Are there more apples, or are there more oranges?" the "Sesame Street" star asked. "You're the super sleuth, figure it out!"

"I'm really just an actor," Cumberbatch said. "I'm gonna need some help with this."

Up popped The Count, who, of course, loves to do just what his name implies.

In the end, the addition of the dashing British actor and two lovable Muppets equated to one fun video.
