You get six episodes from the first series, there aren't any extras but that doesn't really matter. The animation quality is excellent, as are the voices provided by the talented David Jason, Brian Truman, and the late Jack May.
Throughout the various episodes, Duckula goes on vacation to visit his family in Spain (and ends up fighting a viscious bull!), does some adventuring in Egypt, attempts to get his gloomy castle decorated by a Laurence Lwellyen-Bow type (including Hall of Mirrors), does some time-travel and gets chased by a ressurected Duckula! All the silly gags add to the fun, and don't forget the great narrator! Goodnight out there... whatever you are!!!
A MUST HAVE for all Cosgrove Hall fans and big kids alike! :)
For anyone who hasn't seen Count Duckula before it's worthwhile watching it, it's got the same style humour as Dangermouse so if you're a fan of that then you're bound to be a fan of this.
A huge craggy Transylvanian Castle that can teleport anywhere in the world it's master wants it to, a wonderfully dry butler, a dotty chicken of a housemaid, a brainy-yet-brainless vampire hunter, slapstick, wit, the macabre, and to top it all; a vegetarian vampire duck who's scared of his own shadow!
