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>

Trivia

There are two amazing end sequences for the Count Duckula in the outro. The first one had the flashing red Duckula logo zooming in and out when they say "DUCKULA" the first, second, fourth and fifth time, because the third time they say "DUCKULA" the Duckula face is zooming in and out. That one was at the end of the first 13 episodes in Series One. The second one was slightly changed and didn't have the flashing red Duckula logo zooming in and out when they say "DUCKULA" the first, second, fourth and fifth time, but it still had the Duckula face zooming in and out when they say "DUCKULA" the third time though. This one was at the end of the remaining 52 episodes. See more »

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!

Very Entertaining
9 June 2002 | by Big Movie FanSee 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.
