Entertainment for the Gothlings

There are a lot of well-known Goth-friendly cartoons out there for a variety of age groups - Beetlejuice, Ruby Gloom, Invader Zim, etc but it was my mission to search a little outside the box and find some that are maybe not so well known.

In my search, I came across two that look fairly promising: Mona the Vampire and Edgar and Ellen.

Mona Parker is a young girl with a vivid imagination who fancies herself a vampire and saves her town often from supernatural phenomena with her friends. This series is French Canadian and didn't air originally in the United States but did show in Canada, France, and even Poland. Luckily, if you want to give series a go in English, it IS available on Netflix.

For those of you off the NA continent, I'm not sure where you'd find it. Sorry. >_<

Edgar and Ellen are 12 year old twins who live alone in a Mansion on the outskirts of a good-goody town called Nod's Limbs - where they spend all day creatively pranking each other and building gadgets from the nearby junkyard. 

This series has a very Addam's Family feel to it, albeit aimed at a younger crowd. This series is also available on Netflix and Nicktoons.

It originally started as a book series for kids and those are still widely available for purchase.


  1. Oooh, I watched both of these in my childhood! Plus I've read they Edgar and Ellen books. :3

    1. Did you enjoy them? I haven't fully immersed yet, lol.

  2. Aw they both look so cute. I can't believe I have never heard of those. Definitely going to check them out. :)

  3. Do you know Little Dracula? I loved the books as a kid, but didn't know it was a TV series!!!! I loved the bit where they tried to catch Santa! I also liked the book Bunnicula!
