Plot Synopsis

VAMPIRINA is a half-hour animated series that tells the story of a young vampire girl, Vampirina (aka Vee), who is the new kid in town after her family moves from Transylvania to Pennsylvania. In her unfamiliar surroundings, Vee first tries to adapt, change and blend in with her schoolmates, but ultimately she learns to appreciate her unique individuality and that of her friends, too. Vee's parents, Boris and Oxana Hauntley, are the proprietors of the local Scare B&B, a bed and breakfast for visiting ghouls and goblins. Though homesick for Transylvania, Oxana embraces her new role as B&B owner and is a calming presence for Vee in their new world. Boris has a zest for his new surroundings and is always on the lookout for the latest human trend to share with his wife and daughter. Also along for the adventure is the Hauntley's dog, Wolfie, who secretly has the ability to turn into a werewolf; a playful ghost named Demi, who has traveled with the family from Transylvania; and Vee's cantankerous yet loyal gargoyle sidekick, Gregoria. Additional characters include Poppy's twin brother, Edgar, an aspiring filmmaker who's obsessed with all things spooky and out of the ordinary; Poppy and Edgar's mom, Edna, who has a sneaking suspicion that there's something different about the Hauntleys; Vee's school teacher, Mr. Gore; and Chef Remy Bones, the Scare B&B's resident skeleton chef. Vee's grandparents, Nanpire and Grandpop, also show up from time to time to check in on their family and learn about their new human traditions. Each 30-minute episode features two 11-minute stories and includes original songs. The series' story curriculum includes lessons about self-identity and consideration of others.
VAMPIRINA returned with new episodes on Friday, January 11, 2019 at 10:30am ET/PT on Disney Channel, featuring two new stories:

"The Woodsie Way": Vee and her friends go on their first hiking trip with the Woodchuck Woodsies.
