We now have a DeviantART group!

Popular artsite DeviantART has recently launched a new feature simply known as Groups, and I've taken the opportunity to make a Count Duckula one myself.

CastleDuckula via DAGroups

There, members can suggest favourites as well as submitting their own Count Duckula artwork, either into both the group and their own gallery or as an exclusive to the group. We do have rules that you may want to check out first, just to be on the safe side.

We're still in early days, but check us out sometime!

A pair of Duckula...wait, WHAT?

Yes. Women's briefs. These are real, and trademarked to Fremantle themselves.

My sister got me these as a present, and I was like, "omg best Halloween present ever". Earlier this month our very own Bobbin discovered them on Topshop's online site and you can view the thread on our forums here. Sad to say though, these are strictly for the summer as right now it's too bloody cold to go around in something like that!

But yes, these are available only from Topshop and sell for £4.00 [€6.00 in Ireland] but grab 'em quick, I don't know if they will last that long!

At last!

After over a year and constant bugging to get the people at Virgin to get their arses in gear with my personal webspace, I'm happy to announce that Duckyboos can be updated once again! I will now make some tweaks before I can give you all a big, fat update within the rest of this week.

Weird bumper featuring the Clock Bats

For some time, Count Duckula was airing on Boomerang in certain European countries. What I've just found here is what I think is a channel bumper [used to promote the cartoon I suppose] from Poland which, for some reason, features Dmitri and Sviatoslav, the two mechanical clock bats that popped out once in a while every other episode to share a dangerously cheesy joke between each other.

Going by "Bat Chat", it's awfully weird, especially with Dmitri having a higher voice. But what's even more bizarre is how they are actually "flying" through places around the world...

We're now on Twitter

If even now you don't know what Twitter is, allow me to fill you in.

Twitter is a nifty little social website where you type in a little sentence or two on what's going on with yourself, and you can follow what others are up to as well. I've used the site personally for over a year and I realise now how much better it is to have this than it is to have a Myspace and a Facebook.

And today, I've opened a new Twitter to represent the Duckyboos project, and you're all invited to follow us there!

Building up a comics guide

Hi everyone.

I figured that it's about time I started work on all the Duckula comics, and it's looking good so far. However, I have a request from those that have all of the Marvel comics in particular - can anyone here provide a full list of all of the story titles, and perhaps a brief summary of each one? I only have about three English issues, so I think I'm going to need help with this guide.

It would also be really cool if I could have some help compiling a guide on the stories in the other comics series as well, such as those in the Celebrity comics. I have nearly ten of these, and about 5 SOR comics at the moment. I feel that in the end, this would be as valuable as the episode guide I currently have.


Site update: I'm still getting the 550 permissions error. God what is wrong with Virgin/NTLworld?

Brand new Duckula T-shirts

I'll have to thank my older sister for finding these, as she's a regular visitor of retro clothing site TruffleShuffle. Having faith, she has found three brand new Count Duckula T-shirts on there! Two ladies', ones men's, all in different sizes.. .and while a tad expensive I know, ain't these just so cool? Just look at that Nanny one, isn't it lovely?

Truffle Shuffle aren't like your average eBay bootlegger, they're a well reputed online clothing store that even the celebs favour. I don't know how long these will be available for though, because they're hot items at the moment.

Damn. I want one.
