Vampires may be bloodthirsty but they are also hopelessly romantic. Case in point — this frisky fellow with his heart shaped coffin made for two. Ample, um, “sleeping quarters” are also equipped with an 8k flatscreen, stereophonic sound, and chilled champagne (tinted with just the right amount of blood to create a perfect pink). What vampiress could resist the invitation of this undead Casanova?
The bigger the ear, the bigger the Q-Tip.
Bat Boy on a Bigwheel
For the record, the Bat Boy depicted in this cartoon is the not the legendary Bat Boy of Weekly World News fame, but his mother calls him that anyway, since she was a staunch reader of that fine publication before its unfortunate disappearance from supermarket checkout lines. Bathilda may appear trashy, but she always makes sure her abducted children are well-clothed and clean. Actually, scrap that last point, Bat Boy appears to be pedaling around town naked.

Just say no to bats in your bowl.
Coronavirus – Not a Cartoon
If you’ve been following the news on coronavirus you’ve probably read by now the most likely source is a “wet market” in China where one can buy bats, turtles, porcupines, and other wild goodies to take home and toss in the wok.
I’m sure most Grinsane readers have seen enough horror movies to know that eating bats is a bad idea, both physically and spiritually. Unfortunately now there’s a true horror threatening the globe as coronavirus spreads.
It seems like the Chinese authorities are doing everything they can to clamp down on the virus (as well as any cartoons about the virus that they deem offensive). Hopefully the global health organizations that train rigorously for this kind of thing can stamp out this outbreak soon and in the future let the bats fly, not fry.
Sure beats traveling overseas by boat in a box.
Supersonic Bat Travel
Before supersonic bat travel, the only way for a New World vampire to visit relatives in Transylvania was by coffin over stormy seas. But now with Vampire Airlines, visiting the Old World is now only a short red eye flight away (daytime travel is shunned, for obvious reasons).
Beverage Service, Movies, and More
Vampire Airlines provides all the amenities you would expect from a first class carrier. All flights come with unlimited Bloody Marys (prepared with real Mary) and in-flight vampire movies. What are you waiting for – go visit Grandpa and Grandma Nosferatu in the Old Country today!
Clown puke, ew!
DEATH IS A CIRCUS
Especially when you feed on clowns. When attending the circus, one should avoid the food entirely, or at least stick with peanuts, popcorn, and red-blooded creatures like trapeze artists and lion tamers.
BARFUM & BAILEY
I recently watched the really great Hammer horror film, Vampire Circus, which provided inspiration for this cartoon. That said, there is nothing in Vampire Circus that relates to this cartoon other than the words “Vampire” and “Circus.” But that’s all the inspiration required in the Grinsane Asylum to spend hours meticulously coloring clown barf in Photoshop.
Thanks for reading!
