Count Burns is the head-vampire who resides in his medieval castle in Pennsylvania.
The media becomes frenzied when they discover a local vampire (Burns) has attacked and killed a person in Springfield. Burns then invites his employee, Homer Simpson and his family for dinner. Lisa and Bart become suspicious of Burns and discover his secret lair where they find out his dark secret. Burns bites Bart, turning him into a un-holy creature of the night. After the Simpson family find out what has happened, they return to Pennsylvania with plans to kill Burns. Homer hammers a stake into Burns' heart, killing him. However, once the Simpsons return home, Lisa discovers the truth - Marge is actually the head vampire, not Burns.
- Count Burns' appearance is based on that of Gary Oldman's portrayal of Count Dracula in the 1992 horror-romance film, Bram Stoker's Dracula, which was directed by Francis Ford Coppola.
