"No threat is too small, no evil too great for this secret agent mouse and his sidekick! Villains: You've been warned.”
Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming animated action series, Danger Mouse. This is a remake of the original cartoon that aired in the UK from 1981 to 1992. I remember watching a few episodes of that show, but I was more into Mighty Mouse since that’s what was airing in the US when I was growing up. The new Danger Mouse series updates the world’s greatest super spy rodent for the 21st century, and it looks like a lot of fun.
The world’s greatest secret agent, 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.
The new series features the voice cast of British actor and comedian, Stephen Fry, as Colonel K, Alexander Armstrong as Danger Mouse, Kevin Eldon as his trusty sidekick Penfold, Dave Lamb as the narrator, Lena Headey as U.S. Secret Agent Jeopardy Mouse, and John Oliver as Dr. Augustus P. Crumhorn III.
The series will be available to stream in its entirety today, April 29th.
