"Cor, DM!"
6 April 2003 | by (Xanadu) – See all my reviews

From a typical Baker St. pillar box came the story of the World's Greatest Secret Agent, Danger Mouse; and the World's Worst Assistant, Penfold. Their afternoon tea has been interrupted by Colonel K, with another mission to stop that fiend, Baron Silas Greenback and the henchiest of henchmen, Stiletto. "Oh, eck" indeed!

I discovered this wonderful and hilarious series one day, while in college. I went into the tv lounge and someone was watching Nickelodeon. There on the screen was a curious one-eyed white mouse. I stopped to watch and became more engrossed. This was side-achingly funny! From that point on, I tried to catch each afternoon's new adventure.

The writing was exquisite, even if the jokes were silly. The voices had a nice blend of the comic and the ironic. The archetypes were brilliant: the cool measured voice of our hero, DM; the blustering old codger Col. K; the cringing cowardly Penfold; the hoarse whispered Baron Greenback; the Cockney thug, Stiletto. Add a daffy mix of guest characters like the alien JJ Quark, Prof. Squackenkluck, Agent 57, Count Duckula, and others; and you had something that rivalled Monty Python for sheer anarchy and laughs.

I was able to tape the series when it was later rebroadcast on Nickelodeon, a few years later. Every once in a while, I pull them out to watch again. They never grow tired; although the earlier episodes tend to be better than the later ones.

And, so; the sun sets on another adventure of the White Wonder and his hopeless assistant. What lies ahead for our heroes on the morrow? Tune in next time for another stirring adventure of....

"Penfold! and, err Danger Mouse."

"Penfold,.....Shush!"

"Oh, eck!"
