Danger Mouse, the greatest secret agent in the world, must follow Colonel K's orders (and try not to break Professor Squawkencluck's inventions) to foil Baron Greenback's and his henchman Stiletto's plans.
I absolutely loved this video when I was little and still do now (don't pity me). The characters all lived in what only could be described as a dump site: the land of Do As You're Told, and all had unique names. Stoppit and Tidyup, hence the title, were the main characters. Stoppit was a small red messy little creature that looked like he had consumed one too many caffeine tablets, and Tidyup was a purple tie-wearing creature who was addicted to gherkins (and lived in a gherkin house!) and uttered nothing else but a loud bellowing "ahhhhh" like a foghorn.
I always remember Terry Wogan's strangely comforting voice introducing the audience to the other characters; Beehave and BeeQuiet the two bees; Eat Your Greens; Go To Bed; Go And Play; Clean Your Teeth; Don't Do That; Calm Down; The Big Bad I SAID NO and his pet Not Now. (Don't rely on me for accurate names!) The episodes only lasted for about 5 minutes but they seemed like a life time when I were a young'n.
I urge you to buy the video or DVD, if not then just download a music file so you can hear Terry Wogan getting excited pronouncing the characters' names! He needs a slap! To be honest it was silly but if I remember it with such fondness and still giggle when I see it, it can't be that bad can it?
