Each morning as dawn breaks, after nights of lunatic activity, Ernest the Vampire settles himself comfortably into his coffin and falls asleep. Ernest is somewhat clumsy and does not exactly strike fear in the heart of others. He is never short of ideas but they invariably end in catastrophes...
- The series consisted of two seasons: Season 1 (1988) with 13 episodes, Season 2 (1991) with 104 episodes. The episodes had a length between two and three minutes (without any spoken dialogue), and each episode ended with Ernest waking up in his coffin. - The six videotapes released in Germany contain only the complete second season, the first season seems not to be available on VHS or DVD.
