Trivia

During the Gulf War, David Jason met someone in a pub who worked at RAF Command Headquarters. He told Jason they race 3-wheel vans against each other, paint them yellow with Trotters Independent Traders down the sides of them, like the van from Only Fools and Horses.... (1981); Jason went down to have a look, but he didn't see a race. Jason, Nicholas Lyndhurst and Buster Merryfield sent a Trotters van out to Kuwait. They slipped it into a Hercules plane among other stuff on a supply run and when it was unloaded the crew would find the van, filled up with chewing gum, toothpaste, cake and Danger Mouse (1981) and Count Duckula (1988) tapes from Brian Cosgrove with labels saying Debbie Does Dallas and Unzipperdedoodah and all sorts to amuse them. Jason didn't ask for any publicity because he didn't want anyone to think it was just for that, but a private joke between the RAF and the Trotters. The van was put in the hold and covered up with medical supplies and ammunition and flew to Kuwait, where it's discovery brought some light relief. See more »

What cartoon legends are made of...
29 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What a gem of an animated show. This was part of my childhood when I was little, and I still adore it now. Seriously, it should be brought back, so that children nowadays could enjoy the childhood gems like this, Talespin, Count Duckula, Darkwing Duck and Peter Pan and the Pirates, that are ignored and replaced with (save a couple of rarities) awfully animated shows like Shaggy and Scooby Doo:Get a Clue. Back on target, Danger Mouse is an absolute gem. The animation is fantastic, very colourful and vibrant, not shoddy and flat. The theme tune is one of my all time favourite animated show theme tunes, I can't help it, it is so catchy and wholly memorable. The scripts and story lines are funny and original, and the characters are great, not only Danger Mouse and Penfold, but also Baron Greenback is such a convincing villain. The voice acting is just brilliant from everyone involved; David Jason is an enormously talented actor and he was just superb as the iconic title character. All in all, a brilliant animated show, that should be brought back. 10/10 Bethany Cox
