Dangermouse Returning

Broadcast has confirmed that FremantleMedia Kids and Family Entertainment are now holding talks about reviving the kids' animation for a full series.

On one hand, CITV getting some new programming that isnt reruns and imports is a nice one.

On the other hand, this is probably not going to involve David Jason, and he obviously won't be saddled with old Terry if he were

Cute British show that was seen on Nick & free-tv.

Thames Colour Productions best show, next to Benny Hill.

Saturday Morning might have a chance afterall. I was thinking it was something we would have to tell posterity about.

A bit off topic, but Zarius,I looked again for info on Hey Arnold!'s revivial/completion and failed to find a single article. Is it official Craig Barlett is on board or is it just hopeful speculation?

Outside of that one audio interview given with Harold's voice actor everything's gone very quiet on that front sadly.

Dangermouse worked back then. I don't have high hopes for a modern rehash, with or without David Jason.

Cosgrove Hall stuff should be left in peace

I-Patch? Oh dear


Quote:

Controller of CBBC Cheryl Taylor said: "Danger Mouse is the last word in debonair and delightfully eccentric heroics and with Penfold at his side the much-loved duo will win over a whole new generation of fans."

While Danger Mouse and Penfold will still be stationed in an iconic red post box, the series will be filled with modern technology and the title character's eye patch will be replaced by a multi-function 'i-patch'.

WTF is with all these classic shows returning? I hardly remember watching this series but yah, pick the most random series to have return. How popular was this series exactly for it to return?

Why not bring back Kids Next Door while we are at it? Or make another film to give in an official ending, I always did feel that show had an awful ending, or end the series with a better ending. In my opinion I felt they did the ending all wrong, Number 1 got the biggest middle finger for the leader and most powerful figure of Kids Next Door. I mean, what's the guy supposed to do now that he's back on earth? All his friends grown up, agent 632 who I felt was perfect for him moved on herself. All of his friends don't remember a thing about past adventures with him, sucks to be him.

Fans tend to write stories where Rachel got promoted to the GKND eventually and spent her whole childhood and teen years with Nigel. Not canon of course, but it's a nice thought to have

Dangermouse is a British institution, it was insanely popular and ran for several years, as mentioned above, it also aired on Nick in the States way back when the channel was in it's infancy. Most Stateside fans fondly remember Count Duckula more, who got his start in Dangermouse as an antagonist.

Love Danger Mouse, not sure what to think of a reboot. Can't imagine it without David Jason.

Awesome! I have the Complete Danger Mouse series and Count Duckula series on dvd. Looking forward to some new eps. I just hope they don't mess it up.

Danger Mouse was one of my favorite shows when I was little. Like you, Blue Turtle, I can't imagine it without David Jason, but I'm happy to see it hasn't been forgotten!

Well it seems Steven Fry might be up for the role, I could see that working, he would fit.

Some characters will return as females...
http://www.theguardian.com/technolog...rs-male-female

A female Stiletto might make sense... Maybe a Baroness Greenback...

As long as Danger Mouse, Penfold, Baron Silas Greenback and Colonel K are still male the rest shouldn't matter that much.

LOL at a new Teletubbies series.

I dread the potential 'shipping of DM and a female Penfold...

...I'd be ok with 'shipping DM and Stilleto though

Looking at the released poster/art promo, Penfold is male, so don't worry about that.

Alexander Armstrong (Armstrong and Miller, The Sarah Jane Adventures, Pointless) will voice Dangermouse, with comedian Kevin Eldon as Penfold and narration by Dave Lamb (Come Dine With Me), other voices include Morweena Banks and Shauna McDonald as the niece of Professor Sqawckencluck
