Danger Mouse

Danger Mouse is a suave British secret agent based in large part on Patrick McGoohan in 'Danger Man' ('Secret Agent' in the US), though other elements of the show obviously derive from 007. Living in a red mailbox on a London street, he and his eternally nervous sidekick Penfold the hamster are summoned by Colonel K for secret missions which usually involve thwarting the evil toad Silas Greenback from some plot involving world domination.

animated series Danger Mouse © Cosgrove-Hall / Thames TelevisionThe first UK cartoon series to be syndicated coast-to-coast in the USA (on Nickelodeon).

Originally 5 minute serialised episodes in the UK, the US version consisted of two episodes joined together into one 10 minute story. The UK later adopted this format, and in the 1990's actually went to a 30 minute episode format.

The part of Stiletto was re-dubbed for the US version, changing his Italian accent to Cockney. This may be just about the only instance of a voice being changed to an English accent for US release!

From the creators of 'Count Duckula', who debuts in the Danger Mouse episode "The Four Tasks of Danger Mouse".
