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.
Nanny:I'll get it!
Narrator:The latest reincarnation did not run according to plan.

" If you're looking for some fun, you can always count upon...", 31 August 2006
Author: anxietyresister from United Kingdom

Immediately after Dangermouse, David Jason recorded the voice for a TV series based loosely on one of the spin-off characters from the programme. This would be a vegetarian duck who comes from a long lineage of nasty vampires who are resurrected every 100 years by using an ancient incantation and a bottle of blood. Sadly, there is a slight mishap with this particular ceremony and instead of a bloodthirsty creature from the deep, we get a egotistical music-loving weakling who enjoys nothing better than munching on piece of celery. Together with his stupid but tough nanny and his shady butler Igor, he lives in a dark castle on a mountain in Transylvania called appropriately enough 'Castle Duckula' from where he can teleport around the world by simply entering a magic crypt. These zany adventures last for 4 series, and the plots get every weirder and whackier...

Possessing much the same sense of humour as it's better known predecessor, this is one of those classic cartoon series from your childhood that you're never likely to forget. It had the lot: Colourful animation, witty story lines, off-the-wall characters and a GREAT theme tune. Having just purchased the first season on DVD, I was very surprised about how well it held up, and I look forward to spending 11 hours (according to the box) reacquainting myself with an old favourite. If only the likes of Nickelodian would look at 'Count Duckula' today and take some notes... don't patronise children with endless cheesy action and stupid morals, THIS is how it's done. Now its time for me to go but... "Goodnight out there, whatever you are!!" ;) 8/10
