|~ Count Blood Count|
Count Blood Count is a vampire living in Transylvania who tries to kill Bugs Bunny, but like many other Looney Tunes villains, his plans are foiled by the rabbit. He appears in the 1963 cartoon short Transylvania 6-5000.
The cartoon opens with Bugs Bunny, on his way to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania but he ends up in Transylvania. He sees the Count's castle and walks over to it, thinking it is a hotel. The count lets him in and brings him to one of the bedrooms. Bugs is oblivious to the fact that the count is a vampire. Bugs cannot sleep and reads a book of magic words and phrases. The count appears behind him, ready to bite him but Bugs says 'Abacadabra' and the count turns into a bat. Bugs thinks the bat is a mosquito and swats him.
The count, in a dizzy state, flies outside but Bugs says 'Hocus Pocus' and the count returns to normal and falls into the moat below. The count furiously storms in and tries to attack Bugs but the rabbit keeps saying the magic words in song form and the count turns into a bat and vampire back and forth and gets injured in the process. The count finally confronts Bugs and says who he is but Bugs challenges him in a magic standoff.
Bugs says several phrases and the count gets turned into a bat, then back to normal, then into Witch Hazel and finally, a two-headed vulture. Bugs sees a female two-headed vulture outside and she (they) chase the count away.
