According to the Danger Mouse
episode in which he first appeared, Count Duckula was originally one of DM's villans. He frequently terrorized the countryside
and worked for Baron Silas Greenback
once or twice, but all he really wanted was to be on TV
. Danger Mouse couldn't allow this, as the world
would surely suffer after watching his terrible acting
Later, the show Count Duckula was formed, where the Count had a completely different attitude, described in the other writeups.
