Storyline

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 <bdm55707@jetson.uh.edu>

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Castle Duckula. Home for many centuries to a terrible dynasty of vicious vampire ducks. The counts of Duckula! Legend has it that these foul beings can be destroyed by a stake through the heart, or exposure to sunlight. 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.

Very Entertaining
9 June 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is one cartoon show which I used to rush home from work to try and catch at times. It was a spin-off from the hilarious Danger Mouse and it was truly funny.

I mean, how can anyone hate a cartoon starring a vampire duck...that was a vegetarian? Who can forget the lumbering Igor or Nanny who permanently wore an arm sling?

Duckula himself was just amazing-he came out with some really funny lines throughout the series and the stories were very good indeed and far superior to today's cartoons which are very poor (sorry kids).

Check out Duckula if you can.
