TBT: Danger Mouse

dmEvery Friday after dinner, the kids gather round for an episode of Danger Mouse.

It was one of my favorite shows as a kid; my friend Tara and I would even sometimes play Danger Mouse with me as DM, of course, and she as the trusty Penfold. I spent a lot of time telling her to “shush.”

If you aren’t familiar with it, Danger Mouse is a British cartoon about a mouse and a hamster. DM is “the world’s greatest secret agent” and Penfold is basically his Watson (in the buffoon style). Sherlock Holmes and James Bond are, I think, the chief elements involved.

Anyway, some months back I got the idea to show my kids this cartoon, many episodes of which are on YouTube. Now it’s a big treat each Friday for them to get to watch one. We throw it up onto the telly via the Chromecast and settle in for a watch. I think it’s as much a treat for me as for them, come to think of it.

  1. I remember that show, but it wasn’t as big in Canada. I watch the old Batman TV show with my son. He loves it. Funny how the old shows can still be enjoyed by the young ones when the modern shows are just so different.
