Count Duckula is an egotistical vegetarian vampire duck who lives in a castle that can travel anywhere he wants to go. He lives with his servants: Nanny, his large and stupid nanny who always has her arm in a sling, and Igor, his evil butler. While Nanny accidentally destroys furniture and Igor attempts to turn the broccoli chomping duck to the dark side, a vampire hunter lurks around with a wooden stake-in-a-gun and unattractive intentions. Although "Duckula" is a spin-off of "Dangermouse", the humor is of a completely different and original style. Written by David McGuire <>

Narrator: Castle Duckula. Home for many centuries to a terrible dynasty of vicious vampire ducks. The counts of Duckula!

This does *not* suffice, however, for they may be brought back to life, by means of a secret rite, that can be performed once a century when the moon is in the eighth house of Aquarius.
Igor: [performing ritual] ... bat wing blood.

I remember this show!
21 January 2002 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

I loved this show when I was a kid. It was a very entertaining. The characters were funny (especially our Veggie loving vampire duck, and Nanny), and the episodes were cleverly written. I remember laughing out loud when Von Goosewing would go after Count Duckla. I think they should bring this back on television as well as the show it spun off from which was the equally funny "Danger Mouse" Besides you can't get enough of Count Duckula! 10/10.
