Count Duckula was a centuries-old vampire who also happened to be a duck. While trying to revive him, the Countís assistant Igor accidentally injected him with ketchup instead of blood. This mishap resulted in the canardís refusal to eat meat and his becoming a strict vegetarian. Another side effect was that the ancient bird had a driving desire to become an entertainer instead of a longing to bite the necks of unsuspecting swans.

Following his new wanderlust, Count Duckula took Igor along to all his old haunts (a new location each week), traveling inside his castle itself. Following close behind the duo was Dr. Von Goosewing, who was determined to deliver a stake to the breast of the fine-feathered fiend. Through it all, Count Duckulaís nanny was the cheerful voice of reason, regardless of the circumstances.

Count Duckula was produced in England and appeared on Nickelodeon along with another English series, Danger Mouse, both produced by Cosgrove-Hall. The Countís quirky humor was a hit with American audiences, the Monty Python-esque alternative to contemporary fare like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
