May the 4th be with you!

I've been waiting to make a title based on the quote from 'The Vampire Strikes Back'.

Now, this here is the post with all the best Count Duckula links. This is because Blogspot wouldn't let me have more than eight links in the sidebar. I know what it is now, I'm not aligning my HTML properly! All this Blogger code is rather mind boggling if you as me!


  • Duckula Online - A big fansite containing scans, photos and a lot of information...only that it's in German. Contains interviews with the German voice actors, info about what channels the German versions are on, and of a lot of merchandise!
  • Cosgrove Hall Ate My Brain - Although this site is about Cosgrove Hall's productions altogether, this site has some great info about Count Duckula, in fact, some that I never knew before I first checked it out. If you look around outside this part of the site, you'll find concept art and even pictures from a Cosgrove Hall exhibition!
  • Graf Duckula - Also in German, not as big as Duckula online, but has a few small scans that are not present there. It also has a 'shop' which apparently sells a few episodes from the German version on VHS.
  • Castle Duckula - This site is under construction and has been for a while. Nice layout though, and there is an accompaining Livejournal to go along.
  • Count Duckula DeviantART club - A 'club' that was set up by a fellow Duckula fan on the artists' community site DeviantART. Contains two fanarts and a fan fiction at the moment, needs more members.
  • Sailor Comet's Sound Vault - Contains a number of WAV sound files, mostly quotes and themes.
  • Livejournal community - This I made myself [I'm Robocoddess], will need more frequent posting and members!
  • Duckula's Corner - Moved to a new host. Still underconstruction but getting better ;)
  • 14/JUN/2007: Crazy About Count Duckula - Another blog that has apparently just started out. This one makes use of the new Videoroll thing Blogspot put on.
Information sites
  • Toonhound - If you want the best info on British animation, then look no further than Toonhound! May be a bit simple, but still good info...
  • Duckula DVD - Some info on the first season DVD, as well as downloadable wallpapers and a Flash game!
  • IMDB - Contains some info on the voices, episodes and has user opinions.
  • Wikipedia - Wikipedia article.
  • Jedi's Paradise [unavailable to me right now] - General information, but with a checklist to see how many episodes you have.
  • Episode Guide - exactly what it says on the tin.
  • Duckula on - Once again this is in German, but has a nice episode guide with nice screenshots, and contains a short video from 'Vampire Vacation' in German [damn it's rather freaky]. KIKA seems to be a German childrens' channel.
Company sites
  • Cosgrove Hall Films - The site itself is under construction apart from news and links, but the Count Duckula page is still accessable if you click here.
  • Capital Entertainment - The ones who released the first season on DVD
  • Amazon [USA] - Sells the First Season DVD
  • Amazon [UK] - Sells the Vampire Vacation release as well as [though limited] a number of VHSs and books.
  • eBay - A WIDE variety of stuff - mostly second hand, but be careful!

More links will be available as soon as I find, or am shown them.

Hey - thanks for the link! :)
Well, well... I know I promised an international version of Duckula Online a long time ago, and I'm sure it would be appreciated, as most of the visitors are from foreign countries (as I can see in my stats).
But the wait has been long enough now - I'm planning on absolutely definitely releasing the English version during the next months. The framework is already on the server, I just need to translate the rest of the texts...
I'll keep you updated. ;-)

Oh, and yes, you're right. KiKa stands for Kinderkanal which is German for "Children Channel". :-)
