Originally created in 1995 by [[WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot Rob Renzetti]] with Creator/FrederatorStudios (the same people behind toons such as ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'' and ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''), it was originally created as part of Creator/CartoonNetwork's WesternAnimation/WhatACartoonShow. In the original short, ''Interlude With a Vampire'', the titular Count, a vampire, accidentally stumbles into the room of one Mina Harper, age 7. (He was looking for Nina Parker, age 17.) Mina quickly proves her formidity when she abruptly [[ClingyJealousGirl turns herself into his leg accessory,]] and despite being dragged into every manner of girly game by Mina, the Count quickly finds himself enjoying it and becomes her friend. The following shorts detailed their various goofy and spooky adventures. During its run of shorts, it migrated from Cartoon Network to Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}'s ''Oh Yeah! Cartoons.''

Among the other shorts on the various Frederator shorts shows, ''Mina and The Count'' was highly unusual. While most cartoons only saw either one or two episodes and then [[PoorlyDisguisedPilot a full series,]] or one episode and then vanishing obscurity, ''Mina'' saw a full six shorts released throughout its run, making it a kind of cartoon MiniSeries. It even built up a small fanbase throughout the years. But despite fans' vocal interest, it never has been--[[WordOfGod and probably never will be]]--expanded to a full show. Not to mention, [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes good luck finding the shorts on DVD.]]

* MoralityPet: Mina for the Count. Kinda devolved into the Count becoming a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire after the first episode. Mina must have really rubbed off on him.
