Bram Stoker’s Dracula Animated Thirty Years Early – Anachronism

In this totality, the first image comes from King Leonardo and his Short Subjects, one of the earliest Saturday morning cartoons. The second is from the film Bram Stoker’s Dracula released in 1992. Of course, the solution to this conundrum is obvious. Dracula survives the events of the movie (set in 1897) and moves to Bongo Congo to menace King Leonardo under the assumed name of Mr. Mad. He is immortal after all.
