Prime Time Duck is the sixth episode in the second season of Cosgrove Hall's 2D animated cartoon TV show "Count Duckula" that was first broadcasted in the UK on 17th October 1989.

Summary[]

Count Duckula wakes up one morning plagued by bright lights coming from outside, only to find out that the lights are coming from a filming crew, who has set out to make a documentary about the life of the Count Duckula, and Duckula jumps for joy at the prospect of this, and is sorely disappointed that the host of the show prefers Igor as the Count and Nanny as a Countess, leaving the true Count Duckula as the servants. This infuriates Duckula and causes troubles much later for him, as he is booted out of his own castle.
