First Good Vampire?


Was FK the first good vampire on movies/tv?

reply

No.

On Dark Shadows (1966), Barnabas Collins started out as evil but became good (after the writers decided to keep the character around instead of killing him off as originally planned).
If you want to include comedy rather than just drama, there's Grandpa & Lily Munster, from The Munsters (1964).
And, of course, Count von Count from Sesame Street (1969), but I don't think that's quite what you had in mind.

I'm sure there are others that predate FK, these are just the ones that sprang to mind.
Maybe someone else can think of better and/or earlier examples.

The first truly good vampire was Varney the Vampire in the penny dreadfuls in the Victorian era. After that the next serious good vampire was Barnabas Collins, as you cited. Grandpa and Lily Munster weren't serious vampires. For that matter, what about Morticia Addams?

Morticia Addams? while she might look like one they never said she was a vamp.

Another good Vamp was LADY DRACULA (one time only)who helped Jonathan BOLD kill a terrorist leader who was held up in a castle in France.

Anyway they betrayed LD and destroyed her with a device planted in her heart.

Angel was good with a soul when he first appeared on BTVS. When he lost his soul he went bad.

I do not believe there is such a thing as a good vampire. Nick was not a good vampire, but a good person. He did not like being a vampire. It was not good, but Nick, the person he was inside was what was good.

I love the series, has a few things I don't agree with but still I loved it. I wish it stuck with the American pilot one with Rick Springfield. I guess audiences were ready for it but when Canada took it years later and changed the pathologist to a woman they were more then ready.
