Vampires Suck...

...literally in both senses if you're fed up of 'em already. What with "Twilight", "Vampire Diaries" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer" dominating the mainstream media these days.

But let's face it: however much we'll complain or argue, Vampires are timeless - like Frankenstein and Werewolves and Frank Nelson. They won't go away immediately. What's really made me tire of them is how certain franchises try to "re-invent" them as something they're not - making them the ultimate "shiny-shiny" to fan girls too naive to know better.

Depending how they're handled, though, Vampires can still be cool - like "Young Dracula", f'r instance. But speaking as a cartoon nut, they're especially more fun when put to animation. So enjoy the lil' playlist below of a few personal choices - old, new, British and American =)

The Ugly Vampire - a DeviantART group dedicated to Nerk Nosserfartu, created by Kat Nicholson - soon to be developed as an animated series, touch wood!

Memoires of a Vampire Duck - a Blog by StaceyW dedicated to all things Count Duckula

Mona the Vampire - Official Site and Wiki entry.


  1. Don't forget the Bugs Bunny and DePatie shorts! Loved the Frank Nelson joke. "Yeeeeeeees I want to bite your neck!"

    1. No fear - they're all included in the playlist, too ;-)
