|Release Date||October 21, 2002|
Before the Candy Vampire became the Candy Vampire, it was known as a Spooky Petpet named Redtail. It was released on October 20, 2000. The Redtail was one of the less popular Petpets in Neopets' early years, which is why it was among the Petpets getting an "update" on October 21, 2002.
It's possible to still own a Redtail. Any Petpet who was attached to a Neopet at the time of the change will stay the same until it is removed. This means only a very few people still have a Redtail.

The Candy Vampire has been selected for the Petpet Protection League award once:

- When the Candy Vampire was chosen for the PPL award, the oldest Petpets listed are actually Redtails instead of Candy Vampires since they were attached to a Neopet in 2001 - before the change took place.
