* {{Expy}}: The relationship between Dracula and Jonathan are not too dissimilar to that of Herman Munster and Grandpa Dracula from ''Series/TheMunsters''. Grandpa and the Count are both based off of the [[Film/Dracula1931 Universal Studios adaptation]] of {{Dracula}}, each having a knack for invention (Grandpa's inventions, the Count's intricate Hotel) and a mild contempt for his son in law (Herman and Jonathan). Herman and Jonathan are both dim-witted, innocent and loving to their family. Where as Herman is based off of the [[Film/Frankenstein1931 Universal Studios incarnation]] of [[FrankensteinsMonster Frankenstein]], Jonathan's "Jonnystein" identity is based off of Frankenstein ''in-universe''. [[spoiler:In the sequel, he becomes the son-in-law of Count Dracula and the father of his grandson, just like Herman.]] They are both prone to scheming with one another behind Lily/Mavis's backs with varying reactions from them and with varying success.
