Dear Diary
Count Duckula is writing in his diary and suspects nothing out of the ordinary, when Igor comes along and tells him that Duckula's diary reminded him of the previous Count and the fact that he himself, kept a diary. This lifts Duckula's interests for a moment or so long enough to decide to take this book straight to the presses to have printed out. As luck would have it, Dr. Von Goosewing, up to his usual vampire-snagging tricks, decides to see whether or not he can disguise himself as a publicist so as to infiltrate Castle Duckula. As he looks for a reporter's ...

Dr. Goosewing and Mr. Duck
Von Goosewing is, as usual, hovering over Castle Duckula trying to find some way to obliterate Duckula and broods on his inability to do so, but as he is about to take a sip of some coffee, actually drinks from his patented carpet stain remover. This has a surprising effect on the drinker; it will turn them into the reverse of what they are for a short time. Von Goosewing then comes to the conclusion that he can get Duckula to take this chemical so as to neutralize him long enough to eliminate him, and he plans to put it in Duckula's milk. Needless to say, chaos soon ...

Ducknapped
Count Duckula is eating his breakfast, expecting nothing out of the ordinary when he checks his mail, revealing a ransom note for him saying that the Count has been kidnapped and can be saved if the servants will amass fifty-thousand Transylvanian drachmas to give to the kidnappers. Nanny sees the letter and runs off in fear, bleating that Duckula is missing, though Duckula was not. It is then that the kidnappers are shown; they are two inept gentlemen living in Transylvania, one of who mistakenly sent off the letter before capturing the Count. To correct this, the ...

The Lost Valley
Coutn Duckula, Nanny, and Igor all head out to the movie theater one night, seeing the film "The Lost Valley", which leaves Igor bothered (he wished to see a film on Bela Lugosi, and hates fiction) and Duckula starstruck, which means that he is then fantasizing about heading to the Lost Valley to find the treasures there. Count Duckula (by some paradoxical ploy) transports the castle to the fictitious world of the Lost Valley, where he meets the natives and attempts to find the treasures there. They are found, but Duckula is dissatisfied when he finds out that they ...

Incredible Shrinking Duck
Von Goosewing is shown brooding as usual that he cannot capture the Count Duckula as he wishes, but soon has an idea to capture him and end him for good: Von Goosewing plans to shrink the Castle Duckula so as to put its and its inhabitants in a snow-globe, where they will be no danger to anyone, (thought they were not to begin with) and with this new plot in mind, Von Goosewing works hard constantly (for years) building a machine that can shrink the castle itself to a snow-globe size, though he inevitably drops it off the edge of a cliff, where it rolls into a gift ...

Prime-Time Duck
Count Duckula wakes up one morning plagued by bright lights coming from outside, only to find out that the lights are coming from a filming crew, who has set out to make a documentary about the life of the Count Duckula, and Duckula jumps for joy at the prospect of this, and is sorely disappointed that the host of the show prefers Igor as the Count and Nanny as a Countess, leaving the true Count Duckula as the servants.

Igor thus tricks Duckula ...

To do this, he, Igor, and Nanny have set out to the Mississippi to find the means for Duckula to be a musician. When he is kicked out of a local jazz club for sounding bad, he states out loud that he "killed them", which is to say, he was better. But a local steamboat captain takes these words to mean that he is actually a hit-man, and offers the Count a job aboard his ship. Duckula accepts, not knowing what is in store for him.
