Mona the Vampire was a Canadian animated series, running from 1999 to 2003.Mona Parker is an average girl living in an average small town. Not that she's content with it. Assuming the identity of Mona the Vampire (wig, fangs and cape that could give Dracula a run for his money), she fight the supernatural creeps and baddies that are drawn to her town (or that she believes are drawn to her town, in any case). Assisting her are her faithful cat Fang, along with her two best friends, Charley (A.K.A. Zapman) and Lily (A.K.A. Princess Giant).
Mona the Vampire offers examples of:
Adults Are Useless: Subverted. It's not that they aren't helpful, it's just that—in Mona's mind—they have no clear understanding of what's going on when supernatural forces are at work.
Agent Scully: Angela, to the point that she has NO IMAGINATION whatsoever. Ironically, that actually saves Mona and her friends when they confronted with a Wendigo (no, not that one).
Cats Are Magic: In Mona's eyes, this is what Fang is. This actually was a plot point in an episode involving a mummy.
Crazy-Prepared: In Vampire Hunter, Angela destroys the tape records Charlie and Lily use to prove that she had something to do with Nicole being mean to them and Mona. What she didn't expect was that there actually was a back-up tape recorder—taped to Fang!
Crop Circles: One episode had Mona dealing with aliens making crop circles. In reality, it was two people advertising a cornfield maze.
Fun with Acronyms: In The Men In Dark Suits, Mona states that UN means "Uranus Nerexene" although Charlie states it as "United Nations". Mona lampshades that those two were always mixed up.
Getting Crap Past the Radar: In one episode Mona is pulled through a mirror into a Negaverse. In that universe the normally nice Charley and Lily are bullies. The animators decided to show this by having the Nega Lily replace the flower Lily normally wears in her hair, with a marijuana leaf.
For not being made in Japan, this show certainly gets away with a lot of Panty Shots.
Ghost Story: If it's not vampires, mummies, bigfoot, dolls, etc., there's always a ghost involved.
Here We Go Again: After Mona 'frees' her mother from the influence of an old band she likes, her dad finds out about a Sci-fi convention based on a show he watched. Mona then states this.
Keep Circulating the Tapes: Actually the show has had a few DVD releases, but only a handful of episodes at most. The majority of the series is still unavailable.
Mill Creek Entertainment has released a complete first season set of the series. However, the rest of the series remains in limbo, and they're also unavailable outside America.
Kiddie Kid: Mona and her friends are supposed to be 10, but with their imaginations they act more like 6-year-olds.
LEGO Genetics: Mona uses dinosaur D.N.A. ordered from a comic book to make her own T-Rex and it works.
Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: Through Mona's eyes—and also her friends'—there's always supernatural stuff going along. However, many of the episodes can be figured out through the evidence placed in the show. For example, an episode where lots of snakes are seen around town and a woman dressing up as Medusa is based on the warm weather and the fact that the woman is playing Medusa in a production.
Police Are Useless: Subverted. The police is good at handling their job. The thing is that Mona usually somehow defeats the 'supernatural threats' all by herself and the sheriff knows about their exploits. He doesn't do anything about it because he only sees it as make-believe.
Rapunzel Hair: Princess Giant has a head of blond hair going down to her ankles.
Rich Bitch: Angela, Mona's rival. The pilot explains that her parents won the lottery and thus it explains her personality.
Scary Scarecrows: One in the pilot episode Night of the Living Scarecrow. Played with and subverted for these reasons: One, what one was the scarecrow was really the caretaker of the church...but then we find out there's a second hat, so there might really be a living sacrecrow.
Tome of Eldritch Lore: Mona's Diary, the Book of the Slimy. Apparently it has some seriously nasty things locked away in its pages.
Unreliable Narrator (Through The Eyes Of A Child): It is suggested in the series that all the adventures are in fact only Mona's imagination, and she and her friends are just playing super heroes.
Vampires: The title character Mona, and her rival Von Kreepsula.
Vampire Hunter: The title of one episode, and the titular character Nicole. Apparently she's also the same as Mona and her friends (what with her wild imagination) and was like that because Angela spread nasty rumors about Mona and the others to her. Fortunately, Vampire and Vampire Hunter reconciled and became friends.
