The vampire, of course, was Count Drac, one of the hosts of Filmation's GROOVIE GOOLIES, a 1970's favorite which is the latest new release under BCI's Ink & Paint brand. This cartoon, a spin-off of the then-popular THE ARCHIE SHOW and originally paired with the adventures of SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH, is a long-awaited release that has finally come to DVD in a package featuring the complete series on 3 discs.
An exponent of the classic Universal Monsters craze that began in the 1960's (and was still going strong in the '70's), GROOVIE GOOLIES was a gang of friendly, rock-and-roll-playing monsters whose adventures acted as a sort of monsterized kids' version of ROWAN AND MARTIN'S LAUGH-IN, following almost the same format right down to the wall of windows (here christened "Weird Window Time") where the characters told jokes and one-liners. In addition to Drac, the other Goolies were Frankie (the friendly, sweetly goofy Frankenstein's Monster), Wolfie (a hip, surfing, hot-rod-driving, practical-joking Werewolf), Mummy, Boneapart (a skeleton who fell apart as often as not), the sexy Vampira-inspired Bella LaGhostley, wacky witch-cook Hagatha, and a host of others.Read more ›
The gang of gouls would have little adventures and then break out into cute songs like "Monster Cookbook," and "1,2,3." The songs were very catchy and the DVD producers knew the songs were important to the fans so they even added an option where you can sing a long with the songs. The songs included in each episodes are also listed on the DVD box.
Disc one includes 6 episodes (with commentary for the first two episodes), disc two includes 6 episodes also and disc 3 includes 4 episodes and the special features. The box set also includes a color booklet that includes show history information.
Hosted by Wally Wingert, Daniel Roebuck featuring interviews with Alice Cooper, Forrest J. Ackerman, Lou Scheimer, Ron Chaney, Bill Corso, Jack Mendelsohn and others.

This show was long before my time but it seemed enjoyable when I viewed the DVD and fans of the show who remember it should be pleased with the DVD release.
