- This article is about the Treehouse of Horror character. For the real character, see Charles Montgomery Burns.
- “Ah, precious blood!”
- ―Count Burns
Count Burns was the head vampire who resides in his medieval castle in Pennsylvania until he was killed by Homer.
The media becomes frenzied when they discover a local vampire (Mr. Burns) has attacked and killed a person in Springfield. Mr. Burns then invites his employee, Homer Simpson and his family for a midnight dinner in Pennsylvania. Lisa and Bart become suspicious of Mr. Burns and discover his secret lair where they find out his dark secret. Mr. Burns bites Bart, turning him into an un-holy creature of the night. After the Simpson family find out what has happened, they return to Pennsylvania with plans to kill Mr Burns. Homer hammers a stake into Mr. Burns's heart, killing him and getting fired. However, once the Simpsons return home, Lisa discovers the truth - Marge is actually the head vampire, not Mr. Burns.
- Count Burns acted as the boss for the level "Vlad All Over" in the video game The Simpsons: Night of the Living Treehouse of Horror, which was based on Bart Simpson's Dracula. Like in that episode, Homer ultimately kills Mr. Burns, although in this case, he opens the windows to bring sunlight in, eventually trapping him in the rays of the sun and causing him to disintegrate.
- Count Burns' appearance is based on that of Gary Oldman's portrayal of Count Dracula in the 1992 horror-romance film, Bram Stoker's Dracula, which was directed by Francis Ford Coppola.
- Homer calls his hairdo "queer." Count Burns hears that, so Homer blames it on Bart Simpson.
