Nice issue today ES. I also looked at the Classic Kids Show section and noticed that Jimmy Hibbert voiced Dr Van Gooswing in Duckula (Wasn't Van Helsing/Gooswing supposed to be Dutch?) But Hibbert voiced Bluey in my favourite show: The Avenger Penguins (Which I own on DVD)

Nice read though mate. Can't wat for the next one 8)

Thank you very much, Fidjit. :)

Van Helsing may be Dutch but Von Goosewing is German (hence the changing of "Van" to "Von") which allows for several "hilarious" scenes involving the use of the word "nein", as well as Goosewing's favourite expletive, "By the Lederhosen of mein great-grandfather!"

Having watched Count Duckula on DVD recently, I have nothing but praise for the versatility of Jimmy Hibbert's voice acting. I enjoy his Avenger Penguins voices too, including Bella, Harry Slime and one of the Badly-Drawn Brothers.

I was always under the impression that von Goosewing was meant to be Austrian, although come to think of it, I've no idea why.

I guess he could just as easily be Austrian as German, going by his native tongue. It's never explicitly stated on the show.
