"Castle Duckula, home for many centuries to a dreadful 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." - The Narrator (Barry Clayton)
In the heart of Transylvan-ia,
In the Vampire Hall of Fame-yeah,
There's not a vampire zanier than...
He won't bite beast or man,
'Cos he's a vegetari-an.
And things never run to plan for...
If you're looking for some fun,
You can always count upon,
Come and find the one they call...
Heh, heh. Count Duckula!
Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh!
From the genius' at Cosgrove Hall, Count Duckula recalls the spirit of their earlier master-work, Dangermouse and is indeed a spin-off from an episode where Dangermouse must retrieve a feather from a vampire duck! David Jason, a favourite voice-over artist at the animation studio, provides the voice behind the pacifist vampire duck.
Count Duckula is a green-feathered vampire duck who likes nothing more than ketchup and broccoli. Residing in his Transylvanian mansion Castle Duckula, the Count knocks about with his traditionalist butler, Igor, and the deranged poultry housekeeper, Nanny! However, despite Duckula's harmless disposition towards vegetables, his age-old nemesis, Dr. Von Goosewing regularly tries to stake out bumbling hero for the historical atrocities committed by the Count's blood-sucking relatives!
