Danger Mouse is a British animated television series which was produced by Cosgrove Hall Films for Thames Television. It features the eponymous Danger Mouse, an English mouse who works as a superhero/secret agent. The show is a loose parody of British spy fiction, particularly James Bond and the Danger Man series starring Patrick McGoohan. The show originally ran in the United Kingdom from 1981 to 1992. In the English-language version, the titular hero was voiced by David Jason.
The hero wears an eyepatch and his chest is prominently emblazoned with the initials 'DM'. This causes problems for those translating the series into other languages, where a literal translation of the words 'Danger' and 'Mouse' do not have those initials; the Scots Gaelic version, for example, calls the series (and the lead) Donnie Murdo (two given names unconnected either with mice or danger). The Slovene translation omitted the DM initials entirely, however, dubbing Danger Mouse Hrabri mišek ('Brave Mouse'). In French, trying to keep with the initials, the mouse was named Dare Dare Motus, "Dare Dare" being French slang for "as fast as possible".
By 1983 Danger Mouse viewing figures hit all-time high of 21.59 million viewers. On the same week the movie Superman III only managed to have 16.76 million viewing figures. Danger Mouse was the first British cartoon to break into the American TV market (since the animated shorts Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings, Ludwig, & Paddington Bear being shown in the 1970s & Gerry Anderson's Supermarionation shows including Stingray, Thunderbirds, Joe 90 & others in the 1960s) following syndication on 4 June 1984, where it garnered a tremendous fan following that still exists. Since it went off air it has been periodically repeated and been released on DVD. In the United States it was broadcast on Nickelodeon in the 1980s in the late afternoons and in the early evenings as a segue into prime-time hours (as the A&E Network and later Nick-At-Nite) as the series appealed to both pre-teens and adults with its quick-witted English humour.
Although all the characters in the series are animals, the adventures of Danger Mouse appear to be taking place alongside the human world; there are various examples of a mouse-sized Danger Mouse walking through human-scale sets, standing on table-football tables and, not least, living inside a normal size pillar box. This becomes less consistent as the series goes on, as many later episodes show the characters as being human size. There are also times when the cast attempts to deliberately interact with humans (such as Duckula mind-controlling human Members of Parliament to be as showbiz-mad as he is, as well as the episode "Trip to America" where Danger Mouse and Penfold are seen to interact with a Texan).
In Australia, it was first broadcast on ABC TV, then in 1996 it was on Network Ten. It is still best remembered as a Classic ABC programme. It was also the first British cartoon to break into Cheez TV, being shown on the weekdays. In Britain's Channel 4's 100 Greatest Kids' TV shows Danger Mouse came third, beaten only by The Muppet Show and The Simpsons.
Because a ten minute episode needed 2,000 drawings, as a cost-cutting measure, the cartoons made frequent use of repeated footage and "in the dark" sequences (black with eyeballs visible only, or, in Danger Mouse's case, simply one eyeball). A recurring setting for episodes was "The North Pole" - so chosen because the white, snow-covered backgrounds would require minimal painting and colouring.
Although rumours of a CGI revival of the show have persisted in recent years, no official announcements have been made. The original Danger Mouse has returned to terrestrial television after the BBC purchased episodes of the series to broadcast in its daytime schedules with its first broadcast on 12 February 2007.
A long-running comic strip adaptation, written by Angus P. Allan and illustrated by Arthur Ranson, ran in Look-In magazine and was syndicated in various other magazines. Ranson also provided some backdrops for the TV series. Allan and Ranson's work was highly appreciated by Cosgrove Hall, and the pair were awarded an "Oh Goodness!, Oh Crikey!" award in appreciation of their services. Some of Allan's stories were adapted for the television series, although Allan's name was mis-spelled "Angus Allen". Artist Ranson later went on to illustrate Judge Anderson in the UK comic 2000 AD.
A series of video games based on the character also appeared. The first was Danger Mouse in Double Trouble and Danger Mouse in the Black Forest Chateau (both in 1984) followed by Danger Mouse in Making Whoopee! in 1985.
- Danger Mouse (voiced by David Jason): The world's greatest secret agent, so secret in fact that his codename has a codename. He speaks 34 languages fluently, including some extraterrestrial ones. He regularly balances himself on his index finger and bounces up and down on it (something that Remo Williams has also been known to do); he refers to this as "going into a 7th level Yoga-Hopping Trance". His eyepatch is not actually needed and, as he points out, is worn 'because it's part of the suit.' This is shown in one episode when Danger Mouse wears the eye patch on the wrong eye, and swaps it over part way through the episode. Referred to as the "White Wonder" and "Wretched Rodent" by Baron Greenback. Catchphrases: "Good grief!", "Penfold, shush!", "Blast!" He is also a practitioner of the ancient martial art of Kung Moggy. He was originally going to be brown, however the creators thought they needed a different colour to that of Penfold's.
- Ernest Penfold (voiced by Terry Scott): Penfold is a timid, bespectacled hamster, basically Danger Mouse's reluctant assistant. Though often mistaken for a mole his identity as a hamster was confirmed directly by the show's creator Brian Cosgrove on the 20th of January 2011 following numerous public complaints to the UK quiz show "The Chase" which did not offer mole as part of its multiple choice answers. References to Penfold being a hamster occur multiple times through episodes and in the closing narration of the episode "The Trouble with Ghosts" it is asked if Penfold will "get the worst dressed hamster award again this year?" Penfold stands just over half the height of Danger Mouse, and always wears thick round glasses and a crumpled blue suit with a white shirt and a yellow and black striped tie. He is the sidekick of Danger Mouse, whom he calls "Chief". He is a coward (known as the Jigsaw as he goes to pieces when a problem occurs), becoming terrified at any sign of danger. He appears in every episode accompanying Danger Mouse, and he is often captured or getting himself into other dangerous situations before needing to be rescued by Danger Mouse. His main catchphrase is "Crumbs, DM!" and others include "Ooh-eck!", "Ooh-Fiddle!" and "Ooh-Carrots!", all said when things go wrong. He also says "Coming, Chief!" when Danger Mouse wants to speak with him. Nevertheless, he appears to have some moral fibre, and is willing to resist Evil when things begin to go wrong—at least temporarily. He is a self-proclaimed expert in the martial art referred to in the cartoon as "kung moggie", though his skills do not do him much good in practice. He almost always makes ridiculous responses, whether by misunderstanding or mistaking as a joke, to which DM tells him to "shush".
- Colonel K (voiced by Edward Kelsey): Danger Mouse's boss; often mistaken for a walrus, it was revealed in an issue of "Look-In" magazine that he is, in fact, a chinchilla. He previously worked for Special Branch, where he was known as Special K. He is a champion piano-thrower, decorated judo expert, the first to climb Mount Everest on a pogo stick, was once an Eskimo, took up tap-dancing, was a former kleptomaniac, and cheats at croquet. During the last two seasons, he became more absent-minded, tending to frustrate both DM and Penfold with his tendency to ramble nonsense. Often when it is time for the Colonel to say "over and out," he'll forget what the phrase is in a temporary case of memory loss. Other times, he will become frustrated when DM does not immediately respond, such as if DM is in the middle of a yoga exercise.
- Professor Heinrich Von Squawkencluck: Mad scientist/inventor/boffin. Inventor of the Mark III, DM's flying car, and the Space Hopper, DM's personal spacecraft. A mole, despite his avian name (which comes from his first appearance on the show, in which he was engaged in hormone experiments to grow chickens to enormous sizes). Speaks in a broken German accent. Penfold is naturally leery of the professor, as he often winds up on the wrong side of his experiments.
- Agent 57: Initially a master of disguise, Agent 57 later gained the ability to alter his own molecular structure to transform into any appearance he wished. This ability went temporarily out of control in one episode when he contracted a cold, causing him to involuntarily change shape whenever he sneezed. His original appearance was never shown, and as a result of changing his appearance so many times, he eventually forgot what it was. Although his name derives principally from Heinz 57, it is an interesting coincidence that Nayland Smith in the Fu Manchu books was "Agent 56". An eerily parallel character is shown as the invisible agent in the recent The Avengers movie, where the invisible agent talks about how his transformation results from ramming his tea-trolley into a sensitive piece of equipment.
- In the episode where Agent 57 had sneezing fits, Danger Mouse asked him if he could transform himself into his original appearance; Agent 57 obliged, and Danger Mouse looked down at the floorboard of the Mark III and was horrified by the sight(unseen by the audience). After gathering himself from the shock, Danger Mouse asked Agent 57 to please transform into something heavier; Agent 57 transformed into a hippo, and the excess weight dropped the Mark III.
- Flying Officer Buggles Pigeon (voiced by David Jason): Another of Colonel K's agents who came to the aid of Danger Mouse and Penfold in the episode, "Chicken Run," and appeared in several episodes afterward. His name is a reference to James Bigglesworth.
- B.L.E.E.P: (Building Location and Emergency Expedition Platoon) This special squadron was called to assist Danger Mouse and Penfold to defeat Hannibal Hogartey when he and his elephants stole a stately mansion. Their leader is Mad Major Melvin, who is also an old friend of Danger Mouse.
- Texas Jack McGraw McGraw: (voiced by David Jason) This wild, loud-mouthed but loyal Texan helped Danger Mouse and Penfold when Baron Greenback stole all of the world's famous buildings, including the Statue of Liberty. His general appearance and attitude may be an homage to Yosemite Sam, the classic Warner Brothers cartoon character.
- Baron Silas Greenback (voiced by Edward Kelsey): The recurring villain and Danger Mouse's archenemy; a toad with a wheezy voice, although sometimes he was referred to as a frog. Known as Baron Greenteeth in the unbroadcast pilot episode. Commonly known as the "Terrible Toad". In America, "Greenback" is slang for dollar bill in many regions, adding to the sense of his commercial greed. Allegedly, he turned to a life of crime as a schoolboy when other children stole his bicycle and let all the air out of its tyres.
- Stiletto Mafiosa (voiced by Brian Trueman): Greenback's henchman; a crow. He always called Greenback "Barone", Italian for "Baron". In the original English version, he spoke with an Italian accent; to avoid offending Italian-Americans, this was changed to a Cockney accent for U.S. distribution (i.e., Nickelodeon) and all references to his surname were removed as well, although the Italian word "Barone" was retained. In several episodes, a short silence after his first name is said and the next word is quite obvious. The original voicing has been restored on all U.S. VHS and DVD releases and during its Cheez TV run. Today, modern audiences have no difficulties with accepting his accent, as it is compared to Chico Marx of The Marx Brothers but the censors were less trustworthy of the melting-pot audience of America then. Stiletto is accepted with good humour among the majority of the American audience. One critic noticed that to scorn Stiletto's accent "makes about as much ridiculous sense as saying Boris Badinoff's accent was insulting to Russians during the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show." Indeed, Danger Mouse is often compared to American audiences as the English version of "Rocky and Bullwinkle" for its gentle satire of politics and outrageous plots. Catchphrase: "Sì, Barone!", or "Roight, Baroni!" in the American dub.
- Leatherhead (voiced by Terry Scott): Greenback's other crow henchman. Even less intelligent than Stiletto, he only appeared in several of the early episodes, where he spent most of his time reading comic books.
- Nero: Greenback's pet. A fluffy white caterpillar (equivalent to the stereotypical white cat frequently associated with arch villains, particularly Ernst Stavro Blofeld). He is a non-speaking character although his noises and laugh are supplied by David Jason's voice sped up. Readily understood by Greenback and, less frequently, by Stiletto. At one time, he is shown to have a form of telekinesis after falling into one of Greenback's inventions, proving to be just as much a match to DM and Penfold as his master. Of course, he lost this power when he was drenched in water. In the special features of Danger Mouse cartoons, audiences were informed that Nero is actually the mastermind of Greenback's schemes.
- Doctor Augustus P. Crumhorn III (voiced by Jimmy Hibbert): A mad scientist wolf, he recurred as Danger Mouse's adversary less frequently than Baron Greenback. In one episode, he attempted to undermine Danger Mouse by metamorphosing into a Shirley Temple lookalike. In only one episode, "Penfold Transformed", he lists his full name as, "Aloisius Julian Philibert Elphinstone Eugene Dionysis Barry Manilow Crumhorn", omitting both Augustus and the III. Crumhorn was rarely if ever seen among American audiences, who had to purchase the original version aired on ITV to experience his ridiculousness. Crumhorn and Greenback were at odds; once Crumhorn kidnapped Penfold and Penfold managed to escape simply because the two villains were too busy quarreling to notice his absence.
- Count Duckula (voiced by David Jason): A showbiz-obsessed vampire duck who wanted to get his own show. However, his utter lack of anything approaching talent made his attempts to "entertain" rather terrifying (he has been known to use his 'act" as a torture device). This ongoing gag of him craving his own show and show business inspired a later Cosgrove Hall spin-off series, titled Count Duckula, starring the Count himself. The two versions of the character differ, however; the Danger Mouse Count Duckula is not a vegetarian, makes far greater use of his vampiric magic, and has an accent consisting of a Daffy Duck-like lisp (instead of the stereotypical Transylvanian accent), as well as occasional stuttering and duck-like squawks and quacks. This discrepancy is explained when his DM incarnation falls to ashes and is resurrected during the Astronomical House of Asparagus. Instead of a libation of blood, the nanny puts tomato ketchup into the offering, creating the world's first vegetarian vampire duck. In the comic book series, the new incarnation makes instant friends with Danger Mouse, much to the chagrin of the ghoulish butler vulture who really wanted his master to drain DM's blood. In England, Duckula has crisp vowels and an English accent.
- Copper-Conk Cassidy: A memorable one-shot villain who had the distinctive characteristic of causing everyone who encountered him to literally fall to pieces in sheer terror. He is described as a robed character and has a copper beak. He was done in when Penfold, missing his glasses thanks to the villain, accidentally knocked him down a wishing well and then accidentally wished the well out of existence, along with Cassidy himself.
- Doctor Frankenstoat: Another one-shot villain who formed a temporary alliance with Count Duckula. Unlike his namesake, Frankenstoat built machines to aid a bid for world domination rather than attempting to create life. As his last name suggests, he is a stoat and wears bedroom slippers rather than shoes.
- J. J. Quark: A short, helmet-wearing, snout-nosed space alien who speaks with a Scottish accent. He plans to take over the world (of course!) because his great-great-great-great-grandfather was given a deed of ownership of it. Assisted by his robot flunkie Grovel (who does that very thing whenever his name is mentioned, forever frustrating Quark). Both of these characters only appeared in a few episodes. Colonel K referred to him as having 'a foreign accent' or talking in 'a foreign language'. His first appearance in the episode Quark! Quark! results in his plans being foiled by Penfold; after Quark ran into Penfold, Penfold scolded, "Why don't you look where you're going?!" Quark begins to scold Penfold but takes a look at him and goes into a laughing fit, resulting in him leaving the planet under the excuse of "needing to find a cure for the giggles."
- Grovel: J. J. Quark's robot who is programmed to obey Quark's every command. When Quark calls his name, however, the robots falls down flat on the ground face down and says, "I'm sorry! I'm sorry, master!", implying that he is obeying Quark's command to "grovel." In his first appearance, he gets destroyed three times; first when he is wrestling DM and Penfold inside their moose costume. The second time is when he comes up from the repair machine but gets hit by Quark's gun's laser intended for DM. The third is when he gets hit by Quark's laser gun again during Quark's laughing fit.
- The Fangboner: A one-shot character. A hideous and sharp-toothed alien beast that the aforementioned Quark unleashed on Danger Mouse and Penfold in one episode. The creature relieved Penfold of some of his humbug candy and DM used what was left over to lure the monster back into Quark's spaceship, leaving it to ride back into space with him.
- El Loco: A violent stereotypical Mexican "Bandito" type criminal who packs a few pistols loaded with Mexican jumping beans. He was so named when he "went off the rails at the age of three". He only appeared in two episodes.
- Mac the Fork: A sneaky, Scottish snake who is most likely a parody of Mack the Knife. He was a one shot villain who planned to build an Earth shattering device (which instead wound up shattering the building they were in, due to defective blueprints) with the help of Dudley Poyson (see below). He also has a half-witted brother named Mac the Spoon, who is far from dangerous.
- Dudley Poyson: An owl who ran a chemist shop with aspirations of being a full time scientist, who pairs up with Mac the Fork (see above). Also a one shot villain.
- Hannibal Hoggartey: A one shot villain who is a warthog. With his herd of highly trained elephants, he stole a stately house and threatened to send it back a brick at a time unless he was paid a ransom for it. He was foiled, however, by DM and the B.L.E.E.P Squadron. B.L.E.E.P is one parody of the Man From U.N.C.L.E. series, the other being the episode "The Man from G.A.D.G.E.T."]
- Wulfgang Bach: Another one-shot villain, a canine with frazzled hair who was patterned after Ludwig van Beethoven and named (apparently) after Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with his last name a joke on the name Johann Sebastian Bach. He was guilty of destroying the world's music, and DM proceeded to blow his castle up. Years before "ICE AGE II demonstrated the worth of music in an animation, DM showed how background sound could make--or break--a scene. This is perhaps the most "Rocky and Bullwinkle Show" like episode, as the heroes had to do everything by a cassette player of canned music.
- The Gremlin: Yet another one-shot villain, an anti-logical being who beamed darkness down upon the earth via a spaceship. DM defeated him by engaging him in conversation upon which he proceeded to confuse himself out of existence.
- P.A.W.S.: A robotic cat created by Greenback, which he uses to kidnap Colonel K. He was one of DM's most difficult villains on account of his brute strength and that he was programmed to read DM's mind. He was defeated, however, when Danger Mouse emptied his mind by meditation, causing the robot to malfunction and crash-land on Greenback and his cronies. His name is a parody of the metal-teethed villain "Jaws" who appears in two James Bond films.
- Mad Manuel: The Flamenco Assassin that Greenback hired to kill Danger Mouse in the episode Odd Ball Run Around. The only words he says are "Olé! Olé!" and then he breaks into fighting, but kicks up too much dust so he cannot see DM and Penfold leaving.
- General Ro-Mole: An obvious parody of German Field Marshal Rommel, who rides a cannon-armed tortoise rather than a tank. He attempted to stop Danger Mouse from escaping with a valuable super-fuel sample. The General finds Englisher humor first-rate.
- Isambard Sinclair (voiced by David Jason): The unseen narrator, but occasionally interacts with the characters, sometimes to the point of halting the plot for one reason or another (in one episode he accidentally sends DM back in time). Often voices his disdain for the show and his job. He usually comments at the end of every episode when the credits roll before the end theme tune begins. These comments - along with the episode breaks - have been cut from some releases, greatly reducing the size of this character's part.
- Miss Boathook - The colonel's secretary, only referred to by the colonel and never seen (though sometimes heard). In some versions, the Colonel's secretary is referred to as Miss Prentergast or Miss Hackett. Once plays the piano that is mistaken for extra-diegetic sound.
- Fifi: Fifi is an unseen character mentioned occasionally throughout the show, but Danger Mouse is reluctant to discuss her. According to Cosgrove Hall, she was a (French) ex-girlfriend of DM's, however Penfold seems to remember her more than DM does.
- Penfold's Aunt: Penfold's formidable aunt from Abergavenny, Wales, who sends him cookies in the episode, "The Statue of Liberty Caper". The fact that she is Welsh is stated by the piece of a witch's broom in "The Four Tasks of Danger Mouse." The broom is her fifth cousin. She has also appeared in Series ten, episode eighty-five entitled, Ants, Trees and... Whoops-A-Daisy. She denies that Danger Mouse is a real secret agent and says that he and Penfold are just playing silly pretend games.
- Eddy Murphee - Annoying salesman who constantly tries to rip off D.M. and Penfold with items that never work, break easily and are completely unwanted. His pestering-by-peddling backfired when Danger Mouse, fed up with the junk selling tactics, threw Murphee's jumping jellybeans into his mouth, causing him to leap away and (for now) out of their hair.

The DVD set has all 161 episodes of Danger mouse but some were originally aired in 5 minute segments, so these have been edited together to make a total of 89 episodes - This has caused some confusion amongst customers. Although the box set has received mostly positive reviews some cited the lack of chronological order of the episodes as a disappointment. The discs themselves were actually the 12 separate volumes compiled into one set.
A 10-disc 30th Anniversary Edition Box Set is planned to be released from 26 September 2011. it will include all episodes in original order and a new extra feature called "Danger Mouse and Friends"
