In the heart of Transylvania, in the vampire hall of fame...,
This review is from: Count Duckula: Vampire Vacation/Transylvanian Homesick Blues [DVD] (DVD)
I purchased this DVD for my younger sister's 18th birthday and what a nostalgia trip it turned out to be! I remembered how much I loved this cartoon and Cosgrove Hall when I was younger and it really did bring me back to my cildhood.
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! :)
