I kind of like the Ernie & Bert routine where Bert reveals that his favorite number is 6, even though as far as Ernie can see there's really not six of anything, and then Ernie comes up with a rather high and equally outlandish number as his favorite.
Here are my favorite number segments, from my favorite years of the show, which only cover the numbers 2 through 12:
The 2-2 Train
Grover's lecture on the number 2 (3-part sketch)
Harvey Kneeslapper's "I'd Love 2" prank.
3 song (pennants, butterflies, birthday presents, etc.)
