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 »

He's the strongest. He's the quickest. He's the best., 7 July 2003
Author: DragonMasterHiro from USA

Another great show from my younger days, Danger Mouse used to pop up on Nickelodeon. I first saw Count Duckula before also stumbling onto this cartoon. Secret Agent Danger Mouse, looking heroic with his DM emblem and tough with his eyepatch, lived in a red mailbox on a street corner in London. His sidekick, the lovable but cowardly Penfold, was a blue suit wearing mole who would run behind Danger Mouse screaming "Oh, eck!". Colonel K, who I think was an old beaver or something, would call in and send Danger Mouse on all his dangerous missions to thwart the evil Baron Silas Greenback, a large frog petting a fuzzy caterpillar. DM would also drive around in his own super secret agent car, escape from snapping alligators and always saved the day. I also remember a lot of bombs exploding and that great theme song.
