What cartoon legends are made of...
29 September 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee 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
