Count Duckula -- a wacky British BBC cartoon originally shown on Nickelodeon in 1985.
(Also had a Count Duckula comic book series from Marvel. Nos. 1-15, 1988-90 and a Timex/Sinclair/Spectrum video game.)
Fun guy. Teenage vegetarian vampire (mistakenly weaned on catsup/ketchup rather than blood) travels through time and space in his teleporting mansion along with his wanna-be-evil butler Igor who speaks in a resigned monotone, and Nanny who speaks in a high, falsetto/shreak reminisent of the old ladies in Monty Python.
Spun off from an evil villian on DangerMouse, Count Duckula eventually got his own show where he was the good-guy. More sophisticated humor than DangerMouse.
DangerMouse Episode Guide: Danger
Mouse, the greatest secret agent in the world, and his faithful side-kick Penfold, protect
the world from such evil villains as Baron Silas Greenback, and the wily Count Duckula.
