First aired: 1983
Whilst the imdb page titles this episode as “The Transylvanian Connection”, the episode itself entitles it as “The Bride of Dracula”. It is amusing to compare and contrast this with DC's earlier Super Friends episode. I complained about the camp element in that episode but this, just a scent few years later, showed that Marvel carried a knowingness that allowed it to get away with said camp element.
The plot is stronger, even if it is ridiculously logic-less in places – why would Dracula travel incognito to New York for one college dance and then kidnap the first woman he dances with? Yet the campness contains a tongue in cheek air that allows it to get away with so much more. This is summed up in the line about the “web-headed wonder and his frisky little frozen friend.” Marvellous stuff.
