The Count - Halloween

“This is me as a young child getting my picture taken at a local Toys ‘R Us. So, not only am I getting my picture with Dracula but I am wearing Mork and Mindy suspenders and a Father Guido Sarducci shirt.”

    You can’t take Dracula’s picture. The guy must be a fake.

  9. Dvaun says:

    I’m not 100% sure but that guy in the Dracula costume looks like Count Gore DeVol a local horror movie host,kind of like a male Elvira.

    There is so much awesome going on in this i don’t even know where to begin! I dreamed of sitting on Dracula’s lap when i was a kid.

  12. Chrys says:

    It’s a young Macaulay Culkin!!

    • Wendy Jane says:

      That was my first thought! Then I took a closer look and, while it’s now Macaulay, it sure looks like it could be one of his brothers.

  13. MicheleLucc says:

    I had the Mork suspenders too! Love it!

  14. Walton says:

    Jason is not impressed.

  15. Elizabeth says:

    A FATHER GUIDO SARDUCCI SHIRT????? Lucky bastard…

  16. Tammy says:

    I love this kid.

  17. Dread says:

    The Father Guido Sarducci shirt rules! I had never seen one before…and now I want one!

  18. Sheri says:

    I wanted Mork suspenders, but my mom couldn’t or wouldn’t get them for me. I would have been a little jealous.

    Still, I don’t understand the sitting-on -Dracula’s-knee-like-he’s-Santa thing, but I kind of like that I don’t understand it.

  19. robyne says:

    oh my this picture is just full of win.

  20. Chris says:

    I too had those suspenders! Loved Mork!….. The only thing you are missing is the “Keep On Truckin” patch sewn on to your flares :-D

  21. Bel says:

    One awesome kid! I too covet that shirt.

  22. Bonnie says:

    so…what you’re saying is that you grew up to be the coolest person ever…?

  23. Bill says:

    That’s my era right there. I had those suspenders.

  24. ann o. nymous says:

    Did Mel Gibson do a Dracula movie?

    • Simon says:

      He was a ‘struggling actor’ at the time – you have to take any gig you can get – and Toys R Us paid cash in hand

  25. Blessedmama says:

    Why in the world is Dracula at Toys R Us?

  26. liz says:

    All I can say is “one cute kid” that probably had pretty cool parents!

  27. HeatherW says:

    This may be the single greatest pop culture riddled awkward photo in the history of the world. Well done, sir. Well done.

  28. April says:

    I must say, you as a kid are 8 kinds of awesome. And I wish I had a Father Guido Sarducci shirt….

  29. Alissa says:

    This is SO funny. Love it. Black nail polish?

  30. LRC says:

    Really cute kid.
