I'm in my thirties and laugh more now then I did aged 11!
5 March 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The sheer joy I've had sitting down and watching through this series on Netflix is incalculable, you romanticise about programmes from way back when, but so often what you enjoy as a kid is absolute rubbish. Not so here, DM has to be the very best, funniest cartoon from my youth (the closest rivals being Count Duckula and Trapdoor.) The characters are just glorious, Danger Mouse so fearless, Penfold so funny, Baron Greenback so evil, the mix is just magical. I can't get over how diverse and bonkers the show is, there's even an episode that feels like an homage to Monty Python. Wonderfully voiced, David Jason the master of voice overs, as was Terry Scott, I always said this was his best work, and he is an absolute joy as Penfold. The remake is so dull in comparison, way too politically correct. This is pure magic. 10/10
