Danger Mouse Is Returning To TV With New Series
Fans of Danger Mouse rejoice because the BBC has confirmed that the eye-patched superhero is returning to TV with an all new series. A hit with kids everywhere in the the 1980's and early 90's, Danger Mouse was an animated show that featured the titular superhero alongside his faithful sidekick Penfold who, together, fought crime in a strange animal underworld set in amongst London's Houses of Parliament.
Freemantle Media, who own the rights to Danger Mouse, will team up with the BBC to produce 52 new episodes of the show. While casting and plot details have not yet been revealed, we do know that the crime-fighting rodent will have a plethora of modern technologies with which to battle the likes of the villainous and frog-like Baron Silas Greenback and his henchman Stiletto.
Between 1981 and 1992, over 160 episodes of the Danger Mouse show were created with Sir David Jason voicing the fearless hero. But 22 years since the last episode was created, Danger Mouse, Penfold and Colonel K are going to make a triumphant return to TV which will be music to the ears of 80's and 90's kids across the UK and beyond.
"Danger Mouse is the last word in debonair and delightfully eccentric heroics and with Penfold at his side the much-loved duo will win over a whole new generation of fans." said CBBC Controller, Cheryl Taylor.
The new look Danger Mouse is set to air on the BBC's children's network (CBBC) in early 2015.
