I don’t know anything about Danger Mouse. I mean, it’s pretty cool that his first name is Danger but other than that, everything about this announcement and trailer were news to me. From Netflix:
The world’s greatest superspy, Danger Mouse, returns in dashing, globe-spanning style with a new animated series that features all the classic characters, catchphrases and comedy that made it an 80’s cult favorite. With the world once more teetering on the edge of disaster, the small but heroic secret agent is back to thrill a whole new generation of fans as he attempts to overthrow a host of villainous rivals with the help of hapless hamster Penfold and a collection of state-of-the-art gadgetry and vehicles. Originally a loose parody of British spy fiction, this new Danger Mouse series will feature Alexander Armstrong as Danger Mouse, Kevin Eldon as Danger Mouse’s trusty sidekick Penfold, Stephen Fry as Colonel K and Dave Lamb as the narrator. You’ll also find Lena Heady as the voice of US Secret Agent Jeopardy Mouse, with John Oliver supplying the voice of mad scientist wolf Dr.l Augustus P Crumhorn III.
“I wanted to do it [Danger Mouse] because it was pure nostalgia for me,” said Headey when she was announced for the series last year. “I have children now and it’s just a treat to be involved in something that you loved as a kid and be able to share it. Those moments as an actor that come a long once in while are not to be missed.”
“I’ve loved ‘Danger Mouse’ my whole life,” Oliver adds. “Danger Mouse was a significant part of my childhood. So to get a chance to do it is like getting a chance to step into your childhood, which is both a magical and a potentially hazardous thing! It will be awesome, I can’t wait to see it, let alone hear myself in it!”
