Here is the outline of the series:
Although the Ketchup Vampires are direct descendents
of the feared Count Dracula, the Ketchup Vampires are a different, more
friendly breed of vampires. But some of their relatives are still pretty
bad. So put down all your pre-conceptions and get ready for the funniest,
scariest, cast of characters, ever to come out of Transsilvania...

vampires as you like. The problem for the bad vampires is that the Ketchup
Vampires took off with the book a long time ago. Now the baddies want
the legacy back and they'll stop at nothing to get it!

is Ricardo a slippery tuxedoed vampire who's looking out only for himself.
Then there is Roquefort, the saw-off sidekick and sneak-thief; keep your

on castle Rabenstein posing as relatives who've come for a visit. But
their real objective is to find Count Dracula's legacy!
The action heats up as the scheming Ricardo and a limousine full of blood
hungry vampire students also move into castle Rabenstein to aid Huberta
