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>

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.

A creative and intelligent cartoon for all ages!
4 June 2005 | by insomniac_rodSee all my reviews

"Count Duckula" is a GREAT cartoon in all the sense of the word. It has great dialogs backed up by black humor, and inventive lines. The situations are very entertaining and keep the viewer interested the whole time. The humor is very light but manages to make laugh kids and adults. Duckula has the best lines but Nanny and Igor add a lot to the cartoon with their weird sense of humor. On one hand, Nanny is involuntarily funny, and on the other, Igor is wicked and mean but it makes him look funny. The supporting characters are great also.

The intro song is a classic! And the closing credits are memorable. I recently catched this hidden gem on Mexican local channels. Every Saturday 2 episodes of Duckula are shown and I truly enjoy them. This is one of the best cartoons ever produced mainly because it's humor is for everyone.

Please watch this cartoon, you won't regret. It has a great and inventive story that will get your attention.
