A priceless gem

Rhythm Circus pick up on the vein of classic British humour that runs through Danger Mouse:

"Above all, what gave Dangermouse its iconic status is the quality and style of its humour. Whilst its premise is that of a spy spoof, such a parodical source is barely invoked, instead it scores laughs through its self-aware, ludicrous and sometimes subdued form of comedy. The inherent Britishness of its main characters was definitely always a reliable gag resource, resulting in nearly every second line being a priceless gem designed to send you into hysterics"

JOE'S DANGER MOUSE REVIEW


A treat for the entire family

A grade A review of this week's 30th Anniversary Danger Mouse box set from The Dog Ate My Wookie:

"Invites a wide audience with animation that feels so meticulously created. Though varied in episodic structure, they’re never boring, often engaging, hilarious and utterly charming, and if not, a mere filler that’s over before you truly know it.

Though over twenty years old, Danger Mouse maintains these qualities and stands as an animated series that’s far superior than anything featured on, for example, the Disney Channel or Nickelodeon nowadays. A treat for the entire family, and an excuse to revisit your childhood whilst intriguing your own children with something that took part in defining a generation."

To celebrate the 30th birthday of the greatest secret agent the world has ever known and one of Britain’s best loved animated characters, Danger Mouse, this September FremantleMedia Enterprises is releasing Danger Mouse – The Complete Collection 30th Anniversary Edition as a 10-disc DVD set featuring every single episode of Danger Mouse and, for the first time ever, in the correct screening order. The collection also comes with a brand new extra feature exclusive to this release, the never-seen-before featurette “Danger Mouse And Friends”.

First broadcast on 28th September 1981 and starring David Jason as the intrepid hero and Terry Scott as his faithful but bumbling assistant Penfold, Danger Mouse was an instant hit with children and adults alike and has since become a national institution. The show’s enormous popularity was confirmed when it ranked third in Channel 4’s poll of the 100 Greatest Kids’ TV Shows, just behind The Simpsons and The Muppet Show, respectively, and ahead of the likes of Bagpuss, Scooby-Doo, Wallace and Gromit and even Doctor Who!

Operating from a secret base concealed in a post box on a quiet corner in Mayfair, Danger Mouse and Penfold are committed to fighting evil and villainy wherever they raise their ugly heads. Their commanding officer and the Head of World Security is Colonel K, a gruff and absent-minded old chinchilla who remains in contact with his two best agents by a videophone linked to Danger Mouse’s flat and car. Amongst all the world’s villains, their number one arch-nemesis is a despicable toad known as Baron Silas Greenback. Assisted by his pet caterpillar, Nero, and a skinny Italian crow with a heart as black as his feathers, known as Stiletto, Greenback is known in criminal circles as the greatest evil genius in the universe because of the brilliant inventions and diabolical schemes he uses to make his dream of ruling the world a reality. Only Danger Mouse and Penfold stand between the Baron and world domination.

Produced by the BAFTA and Emmy award winning Cosgrove Hall Films (The Wind In The Willows; Postman Pat; Chorlton And The Wheelies; Terry Pratchett’s Truckers) and also featuring the very first appearances of that other much-loved animated character, Count Duckula, Danger Mouse – The Complete Collection 30th Anniversary Edition is the ultimate DVD release for Danger Mouse fans.
