“Count Duckula was The Rolling Stones to Danger Mouse‘s Beatles” Den of Geek

The Delightfully Bizarre World of Count Duckula!

Airing between 1988 and 1993, Count Duckula is a spin-off of the Cosgrove Hall classic Danger Mouse (in turn, another Cosgrove Hall animation, Victor and Hugo, was a spin-off of Count Duckula based on villains Gaston and Pierre). Both Danger Mouse and Count Duckula are voiced by David Jason. 

Count Duckula was a recurring villain in the Danger Mouse series, having once teamed up with Danger Mouse’s arch-enemy Silas Greenback. In the Count Duckula series Duckula is no longer villainous and is now a vegetarian due to his resurrection ritual being conducted with tomato ketchup instead of blood. And he even occasionally wears Danger Mouse branded pyjamas.

Quacky Count Duckula Flaps His Way to Stardom on Nickelodeon!

Nickelodeon commissioned Count Duckula after Danger Mouse had become a major hit for the channel. A Nickelodeon executive saw a drawing of Duckula from his appearance on Danger Mouse and wanted him to be the star of the new show.

Barry Clayton narrates the beginning and end of every Count Duckula episode in a parody of Vincent Price’s iconic voiceovers. As an expert on vampires, Price wasn’t happy that he hadn’t been approached to play the narrator (Clayton also spoke the intro to Iron Maiden’s “The Number of the Beast” for which Vincent Price had originally been approached).

The five main cast members, consisting of David Jason, Jack May, Brian Trueman, Jimmy Hibbert and Barry Clayton, played most of the guest characters, with many additional female characters being played by Ruby Wax.

“Goodnight out there … whatever you are!”
