It features the eponymous DangerMouse, a British mouse who works as a secret agent. The show is a loose parody of British spy fiction, particularly James Bond and the Danger Man series starring Patrick McGoohan. The hero wears a rakish eyepatch and his chest is prominently emblazoned with the initials "DM". This causes problems for those translating the series into other languages, where a literal translation of the words "Danger" and "Mouse" do not share those initials; the Scots Gaelic version, for example, calls the series (and the lead) "Donnie Murdo" (two given names unconnected either with mice or danger). The Slovenian translation omitted the DM initials entirely, however, dubbing DangerMouse Hrabri mišek ("brave mouse").

In the United States it was aired on Nickelodeon in the early evenings as a segway into prime-time hours as Nick-At-Nite in the 1980s as the series appealed to both pre-teens and adults with its quick-witted British humour.

A long-running comic strip adaptation, written by Angus P. Allan and illustrated by Arthur Ranson, ran in Look-In magazine and was syndicated in various other magazines. Ranson also provided some backdrops for the TV series. Allan and Ranson's work was highly appreciated by Cosgrove Hall, and the pair were awarded an "Oh Goodness Oh Crikey" award in appreciation of their services. Some of Allan's stories were adapted for the television series, although Allan's name was mis-spelled "Angus Allen". Artist Ranson later went on to illustrate Judge Anderson in the UK comic 2000 AD.

Characters

Heroes

  • DangerMouse (voiced by David Jason): The greatest secret agent in the world. He speaks 34 languages fluently, including some extra-terrestrial ones. He regularly balances himself on his index finger and bounces up and down on it (something that Remo Williams has also been known to do; DangerMouse refers to this as "going into a 7th level Yoga-Hopping Trance"). Though he wears an eye patch it is not actually needed and, as DangerMouse points out is worn 'because it's part of the suit.' This is shown in one episode when DangerMouse wears the eye patch on the wrong eye, and swaps it over part way through the episode. Referred to as the "White Wonder" and "Wretched Rodent" by Baron Greenback. Catchphrases: "Good grief!", "Penfold, shush!"
  • Ernest Penfold (voiced by Terry Scott): A timid, bespectacled hamster, and sidekick to DangerMouse. Once, he won third place in a Penfold look-a-like contest (possibly a reference to a Charlie Chaplin legend which states Charlie Chaplin once came third in a Charlie Chaplin lookalike contest). In the first episode, it is mentioned that his codename is "Jigsaw" because he often "goes to pieces". Sometimes referred to as the "Hopeless Hamster" by the enemy. Catchphrase: "Ooh crumbs!"

  • Colonel K (voiced by Edward Kelsey): DangerMouse's boss; often mistaken for a walrus, it was revealed in an issue of "Look-In" magazine that he is, in fact, a chinchilla. He previously worked for Special Branch, where he was known as Special K. He is a champion piano-thrower, decorated judo expert and the first to climb Mount Everest on a pogo stick. During the last two seasons, he became more absent-minded, tending to frustrate both DM and Penfold with his tendency to ramble nonsense.
  • Professor Heinrich Von Squawkencluck: Mad scientist/inventor/boffin. Inventor of the Mark III, DM's flying car and the Space Hopper, DM's personal spacecraft. A mole, despite his avian name. (He owes the latter to the fact that, on his first appearance on the show, he was engaged in hormone experiments to grow chickens to enormous sizes.) Spoke in a broken German accent.
  • Agent 57: Initially a master of disguise, Agent 57 later gained the ability to alter his own molecular structure to transform into any appearance he wished. This ability went temporarily out of control in one episode when he contracted a cold, causing him to involuntarily change shape whenever he sneezed. As a result of changing his appearance so many times, he can no longer remember what he originally looked like. Although his name derives principally from Heinz 57, it is an interesting coincidence that Nayland Smith in the Fu Manchu books was "Agent 56".

Although the viewer does not know what he looks like, in the episode where Agent 57 had sneezing fits, Dangermouse asked him if he could transform himself into what he was originally. Agent 57 obliged and Dangermouse looked down in the floorboard of the Mark III and was horrified by the sight (Agent 57 was not on camera, he was in his true form though but only visible to Dangermouse). Dangermouse, after gathering himself from the shock asked Agent 57 to please transform into something heavier, to which he transformed into a hippo and the excess weight dropped the Mark III like a stone. Sir David Jason, OBE (born February 2, 1940) is a highly regarded English actor, admired equally for his dramatic work as for his comedy roles. ...

Villains

  • Baron Silas Greenback (voiced by Edward Kelsey): The recurring villain and DangerMouse's archenemy; a toad, although sometimes he was referred to as a frog. Known as Baron Greenteeth in the unaired pilot episode. Commonly known as the "Terrible Toad".
  • Stiletto Mafiosa (voiced by Brian Trueman): Greenback's henchman; a crow. He always called Greenback "Barone", Italian for "Baron". In the original British version, he spoke with an Italian accent; to avoid offending Italian-Americans, this was changed to a Cockney accent for U.S. distribution and all references to his surname were removed as well, although the Italian word "Barone" was retained. In several episodes, a short silence after his first name is said and the next word is quite obvious. The original voicing has been restored on all U.S. VHS and DVD releases and during its Cheez TV run. Catchphrase: "Si, Barone!"
  • Leatherhead (voiced by Terry Scott): Greenback's other crow henchman. Even less intelligent than Stiletto, he only appeared in several of the early episodes, where he spent most of his time reading comic books.
  • Nero: Greenback's pet. A fluffy white caterpillar (equivalent to the stereotypical white cat frequently associated with arch villains, particularly Ernst Stavro Blofeld). Non-speaking character although his noises and laugh are voiced by David Jason, but readily understood by Greenback and, less frequently, by Stiletto.
  • Doctor Augustus P. Crumhorn III (voiced by Jimmy Hibbert): A mad scientist, he recurred as DangerMouse's adversary less frequently than Baron Greenback. In one episode he attempted to undermine DangerMouse by metamorphosing into a Shirley Temple lookalike.
  • Count Duckula (voiced by David Jason): A showbiz-obsessed vampire duck who inspired a later Cosgrove Hall spin-off series, titled Count Duckula.
  • Copper-Conk Cassidy: A memorable one-shot villain who had the distinctive characteristic of causing everyone who encountered him to literally fall to pieces in sheer terror. He was done in when Penfold, missing his glasses thanks to the villain, accidentally knocked him down a wishing well and then accidentally wished the well out of existence.
  • Doctor Frankenstoat: Another one-shot villain who formed a temporary alliance with Count Duckula. Unlike his namesake, Frankenstoat built machines to aid a bid for world domination rather than attempting to create life.
  • J. J. Quark: A short, helmet-wearing, snout-nosed space alien who speaks with a Scottish accent. He plans to take over the world with a robot named Grovel. (Who literally does so whenever his name is mentioned) Both of these characters only appeared in a few episodes.
  • El Loco: A violent Mexican criminal who packs a few pistols. He was so named when he "went off the rails at the age of three". He only appeared in two episodes, however.
  • Mac The Fork: A sneaky, Scottish snake who is most likely a parody of Mack the Knife. He was a one shot villain who planned to build an Earth shattering device with the help of Dudley Poyson (see below). He also has a half-witted brother named Mac the Spoon, who is far from dangerous.
  • Dudley Poyson: A mad owl scientist, who paired up with Mac the Fork to create an Earth shattering device. Also a one shot villain.
  • Hannibal Hogatey: A one shot villain. With his herd of highly trained elephants, he stole a stately house and threatened to send it back a brick at a time unless he was paid a ransom for it. He was foiled, however, by Danger Mouse and the B.L.E.E.P Squadron.
  • Wufgang: Another one-shot villain, a canine with frazzeled hair who was patterned after Ludwig van Beethoven and named (apparently) after Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. He was guilty of destroying the world's music, and DM proceeded to blow his castle up.
  • The Gremlin: Yet another one-shot villain, an anti-logical being who beamed darkness down upon the earth via a spaceship. DM defeated him by engaging him in conversation upon which he proceeded to confuse himself out of existence.

Trivia

  • Although all the characters in the series are animals, the adventures of DangerMouse appear to be taking place alongside the human world; there are various examples of a mouse-sized DangerMouse walking through human-scale sets, standing on table-football tables and, not least, living inside a normal size pillar box. This becomes less consistent as the series goes on, as many later episodes show the characters as being human size. There are also times when the cast attempts to deliberately interact with humans (such as Duckula mind-controlling human Members of Parliament to be as showbiz-mad as he is.)
  • In two different episodes, DangerMouse and Penfold encountered a longcase clock that was capable of time travel. The reference to the cult series Doctor Who was so obvious that even Penfold noticed it. A similar reference occurs in "Custard", when the duo find themselves in what DM describes as "a time-traveller's potting shed".
  • In one episode Penfold was referred to with a first name, Ernest. No "normal" name is ever given for DangerMouse himself.
  • In one episode Crumhorn is given the completely different name "Alloycious Julian Illibert Elfinstone Eugene Dionysus Barry-Manillow Crumhorn".
  • When the series was rerun on Nickelodeon, DangerMouse was usually aired with two short episodes back-to-back in a half-hour timeslot. Even with commercials this was not enough to fill the allotted time, so episodes of the British cartoon Bananaman (among other animated short films) were aired alongside it to fill the remaining time.
  • In its Network Ten run, DangerMouse was also aired with two 11 minute episodes and three 5 minute ones back-to-back in a half-hour timeslot, even though none of the episode's titles were at the beginning of each episode.
  • Musician John Squire was among the cartoonists that worked on DangerMouse
  • US animated series The Simpsons paid homage in an episode featuring a character called DangerDog. Instead of living in a post box the character lived in a giant fire hydrant.
