   There's not a vampire zanier than Duckula...

   Cosgrove Hall's classic creation has at last come to DVD in his entirety, thanks
   to Capital Entertainment. They've put together a handsome package which
   includes the first 26 episodes spread over three discs, plus interviews with
   Brian Cosgrove and John Doyle (senior producer/artist). Mike Whaite gives
   us a guide to drawing our favourite duck, and there's an article concerning the
   restoration of the show on disc. And what's more, although this is a Region 1
   American DVD release, the discs are actually Region 0, which means they'll    
   play on most UK machines as well!

   "Count Duckula: The Complete First Season" was released on October 4th, and
   Capital have constructed a rather fine promotional site to accompany its
   arrival, with downloads, an exclusive game, and more...


The Hound says...
    "He may hail from Transylvania, but Count Duckula is a uniquely, ineptly
     British creation. Our Count is supported and hindered in equal amount by
     his droll, dry manservant Igor and bumbling Nanny who have stepped out
     of Cosgrove Hall's top drawer of characters.
With its way-out storylines,
     mutinous penguins, giant potatoes, and liberal helpings of ketchup, it's
     little wonder this vampire duck sunk his teeth into a generation of eighties
     schoolkids, who remain transfixed to this day!..."



      Prizes go to the first five entries drawn after the closing date.

 Winners agree to having their names and country of location included on this web site. 

 Names and addresses of entrants will not be disclosed to any third parties, or used for
        any marketing purposes.

The DVDs are identified as Region 1 discs, compatible with USA machines, however
        they also appear to play as Region 0 discs on UK machines - which means
        folks from both sides of the Pond can enter the Giveaway!

 Sorry, but we can not replace faulty or incompatible discs.
