Cosgrove Hall Wiki

One Stormy Night is the third episode in the first season of Cosgrove Hall's 2D animated TV cartoon series "Count Duckula" that was broadcasted on ITV in the UK on 20th September 1988.


Von Goosewing has created a creature to kill Duckula, but it won't start, so Von Goosewing abandons the work, until it wakes up on its own unbeknownst to Von Goosewing and acts in a sad and melancholy manner. Duckula is on the move for a midnight snack, but Nanny is frightened that the monster from the story that she read him at night will get her. With this, a lightning bolt from Von Goosewing's project hits the coffin of an ancient ancestor of Duckula, reanimating the stone Duckula adorning the coffin. Igor, naturally hoping that it is his master gone back to his old evil ways, assists the stone Duckula in his evil deeds. And so, six groups roam the castle; Duckula on the search for bread to use in his snack, Nanny in fear of being eaten by this monster, Von Goosewing's monster looking for a headache pill, Igor looking for the instruments of evil which his stone master asks of him, Von Goosewing on the lookout for a fuse to use in his work, and the stone Duckula prowling for victims.
