The show was a loose parody of the story of Count Dracula. Set in Transylvania, Duckula lived in a spooky castle, alongside his servant Igor, and his Nanny (always referred to as "Nanny"). All the characters in the show were (anthropomorphised) birds.
Although Duckula should have been a blood-sucking vampire, the story (as shown in the title sequence each episode) went that, upon his resurrection from the dead, tomato sauce had accidentally been used in the ritual, instead of blood, causing him to be created as a vegetarian.
The show often centred around Duckula's adventures in search of riches and fame, assisted by the castle's ability to teleport around the world. Another regular part of the story was Igor and his attempts to turn Duckula into a proper vampire. Some episodes featured Duckula's nemesis Doctor Von Goosewing, a vampire hunter who blindly refuses to believe the current incarnation of Duckula is harmless, while others featured a whole array of bizarre, often supernatural foes, from zombies to mechanical werewolves.
