"He is right dear, that boy could never pass as a creature of the night".
School for Vampires (Die Schule der Kleinen Vampire) is a German/Italian animated TV series, which not surprisingly centers around a group of vampire children learning everything a vampire needs to know. Our hero Oscar might have been one of the best students at the Vampire Academy, if it was not for the fact he cannot see, let alone taste blood, if he does, he faints. To make matters even worse, he is in love with a human girl whose grandfather is a vampire hunter!
A human that became a vampire (after being bitten by a vampire during a full moon) can become human again by replacing all his/her vampire blood with human blood in a blood trasfusion.
Also; a vampire that is exposed to sunlight does not die, but is instead reduced to a living/undead pile of ash that can still speak and retains the same personality. Yikes!
Apparently, in this universe, there are vampires that are born as vampires and those who were turned by bite. Probably as a logic consequence, these vampires grow up and age. They are still immortal, though.
Blood is not a necessaty to the vampires, at least not the vampire children who are not allowed to drink blood until they graduate the school for vampires. They eat all kinds of non-blood food, the vampire children even love human sweets.
Shout-Out: Every member of the faculty: Count von Horrificus and Lady Kryptina are dressed in the same way as Dracula and Lucy in Bram Stoker's Dracula. Professor Archibald Oxford looks like Count Orlock from Nosferatu and Nestor is a dead ringer (pun not intended) to Riff Raff from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Vampire hunter Paulus Polidori shares his last name with John William Polidori, author of The Vampyre.
