Young Dracula was a British kids TV series based on the children’s book by Michael Lawrence. It was a whole new take on the Dracula story that lasted 2 seasons with a total of 27 episodes.
Young Dracula followed the misadventures of Vlad and Ingrid, who have moved to London from Transylvania with their father, Count Dracula.
Vlad would prefer to be a normal child rather than a vampire and the series follows his trials and tribulations as he tries to please his father but also resist the urge to drink people’s blood. Wanting to fit in with his classmates in his new school, Vlad befriends another outsider named Robin who wants to become more vampiric.
