Counting Sheep is the 8th episode of numberblocks, and the 23rd episode overall.
Six is the biggest Numberblock in this episode.
Six tries to get six sheep to sleep. The sheep refuse so Six decides to roll the dice. The dice shows 3, so Six arranges the sheep in groups of three.
Next, Six rolls a 2 and arranges the sheep in groups of two. Next, Six sings a counting lullaby to the six sheep and falls asleep afterwards. The sheep tip-toe out of their pen past a sleeping Six, who wakes up and sees six running sheep. The sheep arrange in groups of three, which makes it too tricky for Six to catch by herself.
6 = 3 + 3
The first Three finds the first three sheep behind a tree, while the second Three find the next three sheep behind a bush. The two Threes bring the sheep back to their pen.
3 + 3 = 6
Six counts the sheep again and falls asleep. This time the sheep run out of their pen in groups of two.
6 = 2 + 2 + 2
Two by two, the three Twos lead the sheep back in their pen.
2 + 2 + 2 = 6
Without being counted, the sheep run away again.
6 = 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1
Six thinks that counting blocks will get the sheep to sleep, and it works. Six sleeps with them as the episode ends.
