Dracula Must Die / Short Tall Tales

Aired Friday 8:30 PM Sep 21, 2007 on Cartoon Network



  • Trivia

    • The real Dracula lived during the late 1300s in Romania. He can't be young in the 1970s.

    • Irwin is actually 1/4 vampire because his dad is 1/2 vampire since Irwin's Grandmama is a human and his grandpa is Dracula.

    • First time (via flashback) that we see Dracula as a younger man (during the late 1970's) and as a purple vampire bat.

    • It's revealed in this episode that Dracula is actually Irwin's Grandfather on Irwin's father's side; thusly making (as Mandy correctly identifies,) Irwin a half-vampire and half-mummy.

  • Quotes

    • (After it's revealed that Dracula is Irwin's grandpa)
      Billy: So, Irwin is half mummy, half vampire?
      Mandy: It would appear so.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Irwin's dad stated that Irwin's grandmama told him his father was a navigator on a spice freighter, an allusion to Star Wars character Owen Lars who told his nephew Luke the same thing about his father.

    • Romeo Must Die:
      The episode title segment of Dracula Must Die is a parody/reference to the Jet Li hit movie of Romeo Must Die.
