* LongSpeechTeaTime: In "Igor's Busy Day", engaged American couple Scott and Laura have taken refuge from a storm in Castle Duckula, and have joined the Count for dinner. While Scott spends the entire meal [[MouthfulOfPi reciting the digits of Pi]], Laura talks at length about how she and Scott met and about her very large family. The thoroughly bored Duckula tries to keep himself occupied by balancing the contents of the fruit bowl on top of each other, firing a pea from his knife at the oblivious Scott, and sculpting a castle out of mashed potato before dozing off and falling face first into it. Meanwhile, Igor and Nanny have long since fallen asleep at the far end of the table.

* VampiresAreRich: Most definitely not the case here. Mostly Duckula has very little actual money and many stories revolve around his misguided attemots to strike it rich.

* AnalogyBackfire: In "Mobile Home," Ruffles sets up a queue of accomplices from Castle Duckula to the nearest postbox, explaining that he will remove the stones from the castle, the next person will number them, the next will address them to Mr. and Mrs. Paintbrush (the NouveauRiche American couple who "bought" Castle Duckula from Ruffles and his gang), the next will put a stamp on them, and so on "down the chain" to the postbox. Bert, Ruffles' second-in-command, is confused by his mention of a chain, so he clarifies, "like a bicycle chain." However, a bicycle chain goes in a circle, so the accomplices in the chain eventually pass the stones back to him, to his despair.
