Dracula is Grim's childhood idol and Irwin's grandfather. The once famous vampire lives in the Home of the Ancients, a retirement home for old movie monsters. Dracula talks fast and likes to dance. He does not remember names well, and often calls Grim "Skeleton Man" or even "Dummy". He is argumentative and easily distracted and often refers to himself in the third person. When he is asked about drinking blood, he is very adamant that he does not suck, but scrapes and licks the skin instead.

His relation to Irwin is that he married Tanya and was thus the father of Dick and grandfather of Irwin, a fact that neither of them were aware of. Tanya had thought he left them; ironically, he was chased out by her after assuming his bat form.

In the fall of 2006, Dracula became the network's Halloweenhorror host in puppet form, along with Courage the Cowardly Dog. Dracula was yet again a host for the movie Billy & Mandy's Big Boogey Adventure. He also made a cameo in the movie itself, during the musical number. Dracula is a direct reference to the cult blaxploitation film character, Blacula and is a combination of Redd Foxx and James Brown in personality.
