The Little Vampires try to be as fierce and deadly as human sized vampires, but they fail spectacularly at it.

This doesn’t prevent them from trying. They diligently practice their vampire poses and “blehs.” They work very hard at trying to frighten The Cat. They attempt to to fly at every opportunity. They even try to feed like the big vampires do, but the most they can manage is hunting and attacking unsuspecting blood oranges.

(They think that blood oranges have actual blood in them. Please don’t tell them otherwise. It would make them sad.)

Despite their continued efforts, the Little Vampires are perceived as more friendly than fierce, and more endearing than deadly.
