Why not Bring back Danger Mouse?
9 May 2001 | by (Brooklyn, NY. (Where I'm from originally.)) – See all my reviews

This cartoon was like Monty Python meets James Bond. It was about a heroic mouse named Danger Mouse who was the best secret agent and he had an inept and cowardly sidekick, a hampster named Ernest Penfold who was like a cross between Stan Laurel and Peter Lorre. Together Danger Mouse and Penfold went on vivid and wildly hilarious adventures and had to save the world from a mafia-like syndicate presided by the villainous Silas Greenback.

Besides Garfield and Friends this was another one of my favorite cartoons from my childhood! It wouldn't hurt to bring it back to television with reruns! Danger Mouse had something in it for both kids and adults alike. And Danger Mouse is way better than all those cartoons they have out nowadays that have kids who 'save the world' with the help from their pocket/digital monsters. And on top of it all, it's non-violent!

So, if you're missing Danger Mouse, just order some video tapes of it! Check out your local video store one of these days! Danger Mouse was a true classic cartoon. Animated British humor which will leave you in stitches!
