* AdaptationalBadass: Bunnicula [[DownplayedTrope to an extent.]] In the books, Bunnicula's vampire traits, apart from his eating habits, were largely an InformedAttribute and left up to the reader's imagination. This show pretty much outright states that Bunnicula is a vampire and even gives him some powers such as turning his ears into wings and moderate SuperStrength.

* ButtMonkey: Poor, POOR Chester.
to:
* BadassAdorable: Bunnicula, a vampire rabbit who is usually the one to correct the problems in the episode, all while still looking cute as a button. * ButtMonkey: Poor, POOR Chester. He's basically this show's [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Squidward Tentacles]]. * DarkIsNotEvil: Bunnicula is a very mischievous little rabbit and can cause his share of trouble, but it's out of childish innocence and he's usually the one to set it right. * JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Chester. Much like his book counterpart, he's a snarky and rude little cat, but he does care about the others.

to:
* WeirdnessMagnet: Chester accuses Bunnicula of being this in the first episode, and the plot is caused by him locking Bunnicula in his tomb in hopes that the monsters would go away... Only to accidentally summon a mummy monkey when he steals Mina's key.

* AdaptationDistillation: Lots to go around, such as the fact that Bunnicula is a real vampire bunny (whereas in the books it's only vaguely implied) and Chester is a siamese cat instead of a tabby, but as so far only the first episode has aired, whether it's a bad thing remains to be seen.
