Danger Mouse, the animation from across the pond, will be returning to the telly in 2015. The original cartoon was a spoof of various british spy fiction such as James Bond and ran from 1981 to 1992. It gained some popularity in the USA, airing on Nickelodeon.
The BBC has announced that the new series will run for 52 episodes and will once again not only feature Danger Mouse, but also his hamster sidekick Penfold. However, this is not your father's (or old cartoon watcher such as this reporter) Danger Mouse. The modern Danger Mouse has an updated high tech mailbox hideout as well as a cutting-edge new eye patch. Called… an "i-patch".
Co-creator Brian Cosgrove will be back as a consultant on the 2015 series. No voice talent has been announced yet, and the new character designs have not been shown. So far it's been announced for the BBC childrens' network CBBC, but international plans have yet to be announced.
