    • My favorite Cosgrove-Hall series

      I had watched this show - well the first five episodes on YouTube, and already I love this show! I'm starting to like the espionage motif.

      And already I have seven favorite episodes, and I always love the idea of a mouse as a hero; for example Brain Jacques' Redwall and The Tale of Despereaux. My favorite characters are the titular character himself and Nero the caterpillar. I know he's the "cat" of that maniacal,evil genius of a toad Baron Silas Greenback, but I love him! He made such amazingly CUTE noises! And what a clever idea to use a caterpillar as a cat for a small creature like Greenback.

      So anyway, that is all I have to say about this cartoon series, folks; that the animation and voice-acting are top-notch - and off-topic: No other actor could do Baron Silas Greenback than Edward Kelsey.moreless
    • A really great cartoon should appeal to youngsters on one level and to adults on a totally different level. It should be fast-paced, have great dialogue and be clever. Danger Mouse met all of these requirements!moreless

      I first saw Danger Mouse ( voiced by the wonderful David Jason of Only Fools and Horse’s fame ) in the early 1980s and was immediately hooked. A spoof of Sherlock Holmes, James Bond and other super secret agents, the show was a true classic. "D.M." as everyone called Danger Mouse was self-assured, witty, very British and constantly foiled by the ineptness of his helpmate Penfold. Yet D.M. always got his man, or frog or duck! Penfold ( voiced by Terry Scott of Terry and June fame ), the hamster was hilarious in his own right and the two made one of the memorable cartoon duos in history.

      When you throw in "the world's most villainous toad," Baron Silus Greenback and his henchman Stilleto, you have lots of fun. I'll always remember Stilleto trying to butter-up Greenback: "You're as gorgeous as de Borges [not sure of that reference]; you're as phony as Al Capone-ee!" To which Greenback modestly purred "Yes, I know."

      With blundering old Colonel Kay (an aging sheep dog) giving orders via a futuristic web cam, the pair was always in some sort of a pickle and always found hilarious ways to get out of it. This was great family entertainment and if you get a chance to see it on TV, or to buy or rent the DVD's then do so as it's a classic.moreless
    • DangerMouse is a wonderful show and earn extra points for having one of the best theme songs of all time. Great show!

      DangerMouse will always have a place in my heart. If nothing else, it has one of the all time great theme songs. "He's the fastest, he's the greatest, he's the best!" Genius!

      The animation was a bit limited and not overly impressive. But the character designs were iconic and top notch. DangerMouse with his trademark eye patch and Penfold in his little suit work wonderfully well.

      For an American, DangerMouse also holds a unique appeal. The sly and absurdist British wit were a sharp contrast to the American cartoons at the time. I know I had never seen anything quite like it. There's also the fact that Americans are easily impressed with British accents, even on carton characters.

      Surprisingly, the success of DangerMouse did not lead to more British cartoons on American TV. DangerMouse stands out as a sort of one-off success. It's the Monty Python of cartoons.

      All in all, a wonderfully odd and engaging cartoon.moreless
    • I loved this show as a kid, Danger Mouse rocks, and so does Penfold.

      This show was very entertaining, I cought it in the Nickelodean days as all but a select few probably did. I have a buddy who has all the DVD's which is cool, because now he can show this show to his kids. I liked everything except the bad guys voice, that was hard to listen to sometimes. Danger Mouse & Penfold were cool, nothing like two rodent crime fighters. this might be a little lesser known, but I would still call this an 80's cartoon classic. I hope I can borrow my buddies DVD, so I can check this show out again, and see what jokes, that are more adult, that I didn't get as a kid.moreless
    • Very good show!

      I never saw this tv series when it was on tv so I wrented Seasons 1 and 2 of it on DVD at the Library, watched every episode on it and I love it. It's very adventurouse and very funny. Penfold is such a hilarious charactor! He has alot of funny quotes in this series like this one...

      Danger Mouse: Say good-bye, Penfold!

      Penfold: Good-bye Penfold!

      Also, the villains are very cool too! I now know why my friend Manic Man loves this tv series so much. It's got a bunch of good adventures and good humor in it. If you love secret agent series with good humor in them, this is a tv series that you will love.moreless
