Danger Mouse

Get Excited: 'Danger Mouse' is Coming Back!

The best news you will read all day – possibly even all week unless Benedict Cumberbatch does something exceptionally awesome tomorrow - is here.

Animated children’s series Danger Mouse will return to British TV screens in 2015, more than two decades after its original run of more than 160 episodes ended. Children’s BBC has officially commissioned 52 new episodes of this beloved cartoon series, which will once again follow the adventures of an eyepatch-wearing secret agent white mouse who, along with his loyal hamster sidekick Penfold, battles the evil toad Baron Silas Greenback.

The original series ran from 1981-1992 and was incredibly popular on both sides of the pond. (In fact, this was one of the first British cartoons to break into America.)
