Vampire Muppets

As for myself, I am neither in the "Team Edward" nor the "Team Jacob" camp. Although Count Chocula does provide 8--count them, 8--essential vitamins and iron, the only count that counts is Count Von Count (SIX counts in ONE sentence--Bwa ha ha ha)

Sparkly AND Purple!

How could you not love the count? Here's a clip of him with Liam Neeson on the set of Transylvania 6-5000. 

"I've counted to Twenty on the West End."

Certainly, when it comes to Muppet Vampires, the Count is number one (see what I did there?), but there are others. 

When Joss Whedon needed a vampire version of "Angel" for his Buffy spin-off series, he went to Brian Henson for help. And the Muppety mash-up that resulted was definitely one of the highlights of the final season. 

Kind of makes you wonder, does the Count have a soul? Who would win in a battle between the Count and Angel? Should they have gotten Janice to replace Buffy in the final season of "Angel". (It couldn't have been worse than seeing the back of her head and the "you just missed her" BS they used in that episode.) 

By Wil Woods (AWESOME)
The only way any vampire muppet could be better than the count is if Vincent Price rose from the grave and personally sired Kermit the frog.
