Count Duckula is writing in his diary and suspects nothing out of the ordinary, when Igor comes along and tells him that Duckula's diary reminded him of the previous Count and the fact that he himself, kept a diary. This lifts Duckula's interests for a moment or so, long enough to decide to take this book straight to the presses to have printed out.
As luck would have it, Dr. Von Goosewing, up to his usual vampire-snagging tricks, decides to see whether or not he can disguise himself as a publicist so as to infiltrate Castle Duckula. As he looks for a reporter's disguise in his trunk he stumbles upon the diary of his great-uncle, Dr. Von Gosling.
Von Goosewing studies it well, for in this diary is a design on how to destroy a vampire with a device disguised as a camera, loaded with a wooden stake. As all of this happens, we see many a flashback from both the Count and Von Goosewing's parts.
Duckula tries to get Nanny and Igor to tidy up the castle, and as this happens, Nanny and Igor both inform the Count that they, too, have diaries. This plays up to an important level later on for all three.
