What kind of accent does Count Von Count (or perhaps other (stereo)typical vampires) speak in? If I remember correctly, it kinda sounds like Italian.

The biggest role model for all stereotype vampires is with no doubt the Hungarian Dracula actor Bela
Lugosi.

So i would say that Count Von Count speaks with an Eastern European accent.

Lugosi? That sounds familiar to me, but I'm afraid my memory could be wrong. The name reminded me something about Ed Wood.

Your remembering very well.
Bela was in some of Ed's movies.
Belas last role was in PLAN 9 FROM OUTHER SPACE.

"Waiter! This isn't what I ordered!"

Nice tribute to one of my favourite Muppeteers.
