Count Duckula Series 1 in July
Fremantle Media have announced the UK DVD release of Count Duckula: The Complete First Series for 17th July 2006 priced at £19.99. The entire first series of the vampire duck, his long suffering butler Igor and clumsy maid Nanny are being released as part of the 30th anniversary of the legendary animation house Cosgrove Hall.
Count Duckula first captured imaginations in February 1988 when the quirky Count was reincarnated by his bungling sidekicks with a transfusion of tomato ketchup instead of blood rendering him vegetarian. The mild mannered vamp then went on to be the hero of 65 thirty-minute episodes as he teleported around the world creating mayhem and mirth.
Extras on this three-disc set include interviews with Brian Cosgrove, a guide to drawing Duckula and a photo gallery.
