Further to the recently announced BANANAMAN revival, comes news of another beloved British kid’s show heading back to our screens. But unlike BANANAMAN, people might actually care about this one. The BBC has today revealed that it’s to bring back the Cosgrove Hall cult classic DANGER MOUSE for a contemporary audience.
The original series ran for 161 episodes from 1982 to 1992, and featured the legendary pairing of UK icons David Jason and Terry Scott as the voices of the cocky secret agent Danger Mouse and his bumbling but loyal hamster sidekick Ernest Penfold respectively. The pair regularly did battle with tyrannical toad Baron Silas Greenback.
The new series will again be animated (because real mice with drivers’ licenses are still difficult to find these days, ones that can act doubly so), but will employ CG instead of the traditional cell technique (because children have been trained to think the latter is rubbish). Expect it to hit the CBBC sometime in 2015.
