Alexander Lucard: And although I'm aware of the fact that closing the plant in Arvennes will put hundreds out of work, and perhaps kill the town, one must realize that... it was an ugly little town, anyway.

A couple of American kids staying with their uncle in Belgium become vampire sleuths when they discover that the most powerful man by the name of Alexander Lucard, a business mogul in Europe, has minions and other vampires running the entire area where they are staying. The kids are joined by their Uncle Gustav and his charge, Sophie, to fight the evil Lucard using the traditional vampire-fighting agents and interestingly enough, develop their own state-of-the art inventions, one of which was a laser gun called The Boffin. Another was a protein type drink which gave off electrical shocks to keep vampires at bay. Memorable guest stars include Lucard's arch rival Nosferatu, brilliantly played by the late Denis Forest. Full season one ends with a cliffhanger but the series was not renewed. Great cast line up led by veteran stage performers Geordie Johnson as Lucard and Bernard Behrens as vampire hunter Uncle Gustav Helsing.
