Count Duckula is the eponymous hero of a TV cartoon series created by the British studio Cosgrove Hall. He is a vegetarian vampire and was originally a villainous character in another Cosgrove Hall series, the popular DangerMouse. It is set in Transylvania where Duckula lives in a spooky castle with his butler Igor and his nanny. Count Duckula became popular with both children and adults and still has a following. In Danger Mouse, Duckula is the same fame-obsessed duck that we know and love, who doesn’t seem to possess any kind of talent!
The previous version was an evil villain, willing to blackmail and force his way into stardom and was fixated on being a TV star, rather than settle for fame in some other branch of entertainment. He has a thick accent consisting of lisping, stuttering and occasional squawks. In his very first appearance, he threatened to drink Danger Mouse’s blood, only to be chased away by the sun. The Danger Mouse Duckula was destroyed and fell to ashes, resurrected during the 8th astronomical house of Aquarius.
Marvel Comics produced a comic series based on Count Duckula, and introduced an additional difference between this incarnation of Duckula which separated him from his predecessors. Due to ketchup being used in the resurrection ceremony, this version of Duckula has ketchup, rather than blood, flowing through his veins. This was discovered when Duckula was given a blood test in order to get a passport into a fictional country which produced a salad which Duckula was obsessed with getting to eat.
But in the very same series, the famous count is not a vegetarian and he makes much more use of his vampire magic. The series followed the adventures of a vegetarian vampire duck who had no fangs – his favourite food was broccoli sandwiches! Despite his name, Count Duckula was arguably more interested in eating a couple of juicy carrots rather than hunting down victims and sucking their blood. Though Count Duckula appears primarily as the main protagonist of the Count Duckula cartoon series, as well as the comics and merchandise based on it, however he has made appearances in other media as well. This is a very clever cartoon from Cosgrove-Hall, the same group that produced Dangermouse.
During his recent appearance in the 2015 reboot, the new Duckula is a mix of the original and the vegetarian version from his spin-off. Count Duckula appeared in North American comics under Star Comics and introduced an additional difference between this incarnation of Duckula which separated him from his predecessors. The attraction was mutual, and the two continued their relationship through the majority of the series after their introduction, though Vanna didn’t always appear in every issue of the book. Count Duckula ( ) was a 65-Episode Cartoon by Cosgrove Hall, the creators of Danger Mouse. Indeed, the title character originally appeared as a bad guy on Danger Mouse, but on his own show he was a fairly amiable vegetarian with aspirations of fame and world travel. The show revolves around a vegetarian type vampire duck (an unfortunate side effect of using Ketchup instead of blood during Count Duckula’s pagan resurrection ceremony). The show’s shtick includes the Count fainting at the sight of blood and speaking with a wacky Daffy Duck like speech impairment.
In the same issue, Duckula, Nanny, and Igor were photographed as a means of formal ID for said country; however, due to the classic stereotype of vampires not appearing in film, Duckula did not appear in the photo which was taken. Duckula also gained a romantic interest in the Star Comics run; Vanna Von Goosewing, who turned out to be the niece of his long time adversary Dr. Von Goosewing. The attraction was mutual, and the two continued their relationship though the majority of the series after their introduction, though Vanna did not always appear in every issue of the book. The character differs considerably from his predecessor on the Danger Mouse series. In fact, the only similarities, other than the name, is they are both vampire ducks with ambitions in show business with little actual talent.
It is about a vampire duck that, due to a mishap during the re-animation process, is now a vegetarian. He uses a special machine in his castle to transport it to different places in search of treasure, money, and fame as a dilettante of sorts. He is accompanied by Igor, the family butler, who, being a vulture possessed of a very strong bloodlust, is a believer in the Old Ways of being a vampire. He is disappointed that the Count is not as evil as the old Count used to be. She is big and dimwitted, being a hen and perpetually has her arm in a sling. Duckula is constantly being hunted by Dr. Von Goosewing, a vampire hunter, who is a German goose with ever-failing inventions.
