Mina and the Count is an animated television series created by Rob Renzetti, which was never brought into development as a full-fledged series. Instead, animated shorts of this series aired on the two animation anthology showcases, Cartoon Network's What a Cartoon! and Nickelodeon's Oh Yeah! Cartoons. Despite much demand by fans to get it shown as an official series, Frederator Studios president Fred Seibert confirmed there is currently no development of the show as a whole whatsoever. The original Mina and the Count pilot short, "Interlude with a Vampire," premiered on The What-a-Cartoon! Show on Cartoon Network in November 5, 1995, making it the only short to be featured on both creator-guided short projects guided by Fred Seibert. The short was about a seven-year-old girl named Mina Harper and her encounters with a vampire during a night that she is sleeping. It is rumored that these cartoons were the inspiration for the Cartoon Network animated television series The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. The aforementioned further episodes concerned the vampire, known simply as Vlad the Count, his friend Mina, her older sister Lucy, school bully Nick, Mina's father Mr. Harper, a handful of monsters and Vlad the Count's mean servant Igor. Everything seems to occur in a little town in North America where Mina's school and house is, including the Count's castle.
