Count Duckula amongst a Retro Weekend on CITV!

On the 6th and 7th January, UK channel CITV is going to dedicate an entire weekend to shows from the past to celebrate 30 years of kids' telly on ITV, and amongst its lineup an episode of Count Duckula will be shown (making it maybe the first time it's aired on UK TV since 2001).

At the moment it doesn't look like they've specified what episode they will show though from the small bit of info on the online TV guide at ITV it says:

"From 1991, the animated adventures of Count Duckula who lives in a spooky castle with his butler, Igor and nanny".

So I'm assuming they might show an episode from the 4th season?  Who knows?  Either way I am rather stoked about the whole thing as they will also air a few other obscurities like Finders Keepers, Woof and so forth.

Stay tuned!

Update: The episode was "There are Werewolves at the Bottom of My Garden", which was actually made in 1990 though it must have aired the following year.
