Created by Tony Barnes and airing in the UK, Spain and France (where it was known as ''Dr Globule'') from 1994 to 1998, this revolved around an undead MadScientist living in Transylvania called Dr Zitbag, who, after getting fired from a pet shop for low sales, opened up his own in a HauntedCastle, where he is aided by skeletal talking dog Horrifido. The series followed him as he concocted money-making schemes, tried to avoid the long arm of malicious policeman Officer Deadbeat and attempted to impress the attractive vampiric Exosisters.

----
!!Dr Zitbag's Transylvania Pet Shop contains examples of:

* CatchPhrase: "Great Galloping Globules!"
** "Trap door, Horrifido!" "I thought you'd never ask!"
* ChristmasEpisode: 'Happy Mishmash'
* ComicBookAdaptation: British comic ''The Buster'' adapted the series.
* DemBones: Horrifido, and a few other skeletons in Transylvania
* DerangedAnimation
* DirtyCop: Officer Deadbeat is definitely not a nice law enforcer.
* EmptyShell: Zombunny
* ExpositoryThemeTune: More like an Advertising Theme Tune really.
* EverythingsDeaderWithZombies: Again, Zombunny.
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: Zitbag has an assisstant called 'Frankenoctopus', an octopus crossed with FrankensteinsMonster.
* {{Flashback}}: Zitbag has a flashback ''machine''.
* HalloweenTown / {{Uberwald}}: Transylvania is portrayed as this.
* HumiliationConga: Zitbag usually faces one in the end of each episode.
* HyperCompetentSidekick: Horrifido and surprisingly, Zombunny.
* {{Jerkass}}: Zitbag can be one. For example, he offered customers a half-price voucher [[spoiler: after doubling the prices first.]]
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: A few VHS s were released, but that's basically it.
* LargeHam: Zitbag, definitely.
* LosingYourHead: Deadbeat has no neck.
* MonsterMash
* NonHumanSidekick: Despite the fact that barely any of the characters are technically human, Horrifido and Zombunny fill this role.
* OnlySaneMan: Horrifido
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: Horrifido starts out as a ghost (a pair of floating eyes) before Zitbag finds his bones. There are ghosts around Transylvania, which are almost all [[BedsheetGhost floating bedsheets]].
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: The Exorsisters, and various vampires around Transylvania.
** The Exorsisters are definitely different. They're NOT vampires. As their in-joke hairdos show, they're clearly intended as Film/BrideOfFrankenstein figures.
* {{Pirate}}: Recurring characters Short John Sliver and his [[PirateParrot parrot]].
* PolarOppositeTwins: The Exorsisters: the one with a green streak is sweet, the one with a purple streak is grumpy.
* PunnyName: The Exorsisters, Horrifido... there are tonnes.
* SinisterSchnoz: Both Zitbag and Deadbeat.
* SmugSnake: Deadbeat. Zitbag is hardly any better.
* JustForFun/SurprisinglySimilarStories: In a town full of monsters, an undead, bow-tie-wearing creature wants more out of life, so, along with his pet ghost dog, he turns something that should be innocent into something horrific. [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Sound familiar?]]
* TheAntichrist: Parodied with Jessus.
* TheyCalledMeMad: Zitbag often says this during his experiments.
* TwinThreesomeFantasy: The Exorsisters.
* UnfortunateNames: 'Dr Zitbag'? Really?
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: Zitbag, so very much.
* Creator/WilliamShakespeare: Parodied as a headless ghost called 'William Waggledagger'.
* YouFailGeographyForever: Definitely how the series portrays Transylvania is this. Especially when there's a ''jungle'' in that region.
