Background

Danger Mouse and MF Doom had previously collaborated on "Social Distortion" from Prince Po's The Slickness, Danger Mouse's remix of Zero 7's "Somersault", and the track "November Has Come" from Gorillaz' second studio album, Demon Days.

MF Doom has stated that he hopes there would be a second Danger Doom album in which he would "rap from the perspective of the cartoons and in their voices, rather than simply create stories around them".[2] Danger Mouse was also slated to reunite with MF Doom in 2008,[3] though this did not occur and nothing has been announced since.

Much of Danger Doom's music has been filled with material from and endorsed by Adult Swim, a block of animated television shows airing on cable's Cartoon Network.

Master Shake, Frylock, Meatwad, Carl Brutananadilewski, Ignignokt, and Err from the Adult Swim television show Aqua Teen Hunger Force all make appearances on The Mouse and the Mask. References to other Adult Swim shows are found in the song "El Chupa Nibre," in which the voices of Brak (from Space Ghost Coast to Coast and The Brak Show) and Lois Griffin (from Family Guy) are heard. Both the song's title and its lines "Chew an MC like El Chupa Nibre/Digest a group and sell the poop on eBay" reference the show Futurama. Two songs, "Perfect Hair" and "A.T.H.F.", are direct references on the shows from which they derive their names, "Perfect Hair Forever" and "Aqua Teen Hunger Force". The song Basket Case also has Harvey Birdman, Mentok the Mind taker, and other characters in the show Harvey Birdman Attorney at Law, another show on Adult Swim. The song "Sofa King" is also an Aqua Teen Hunger Force reference. It features the Aqua Teen Hunger Force cast and BillyWitchDoctor.com from the episode "Video Ouija." Dangerdoom's music has also been played on Adult Swim; one of these songs is "Space Ho's".

Both MF Doom and Danger Mouse are devoted fans of the animated block, and MF Doom's label, Stones Throw, works closely with Adult Swim. In October 2006, the two entities jointly released a CD/DVD compilation called Chrome Children.

DangerDoom was awarded Best Hip-Hop album of the year by PLUG Independent Music Awards for their album, The Mouse and the Mask.
