Voiced by: Ashley Johnson (pilot), Tara Strong (remainder of the series)

A little girl who befriends the Count and has a lot of fun with him.


  • Cheerful Child: She is constantly happy and good-natured.
  • Children Are Innocent: She's more or less oblivious of the fact that her best friend is an undead being who feasts on the blood of the living.
  • Innocent Inaccurate: "My Best Friend" the student film by Rob Renzetti that the shorts were based on, has her accompany the Count on his nightly visits and compares him to Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, noting that the people visited by the Count don't wake up.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: She's a seven-year-old girl who is friends with a vampire who is about 700 years old.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is a reference to Mina Harker from Dracula.
  • Sibling Rivalry: She gets into spats with her older sister Lucy.

Lucy Harper

Igor

Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

The Count's hunchbacked assistant, who does not approve of him spending time with Mina.


  • Characterization Marches On: He was depicted as bumbling and incompetent in the original short (the reason the Count met Mina in the first place was because he botched the Count's schedule of victims), but the remainder of the series depicts him as more intelligent.
  • The Igor: Just in case the name didn't tip you off, he's also a misshapen hunchback servant.
  • Irony: He’s the one most against the Count’s friendship with Mina, yet it was his fault that they even met in the first place!
  • My God, What Have I Done?: He instantly regrets exposing the Count socializing with a mortal when the other monsters take it to court.
    Mina: Did I do something wrong?
    Igor: No, Mina. I think I did...
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Like most depictions of hunchbacks named Igor in fiction, this Igor's voice is a Peter Lorre impression.
  • Servile Snarker: He’s not afraid to make snide comments around his master.
