Who is Danger Mouse?
If you've arrived on this page, and you're thinking "Who the blinky blonky is Danger Mouse", then fret not, I will tell you. Danger Mouse was a cartoon from back in the day. He's a retro cartoon character. He's a white mouse, who fights crime. But he's a tough mouse, he has an eye patch and everything.
Cosgrove were the animators who created him, and what made Dangermouse even more legendary is that he was voiced by one of the UK's national heroes, David Jason.
Danger Mouse had a little side kick, who is assumedly a mole, he's quite shy and nervous, the opposite of our friend, DM! Penfold, helps Danger Mouse to fight crime, primarily against the evil clutches of Baron Greenback - a big angry, mean toad like villain!
There is a youtube link on this page, so do take a moment to find out more about this often forgotten, but so good kids TV cartoon!

Who used to voice Danger Mouse?
Danger Mouse was voiced and narrated by British Legend, David Jason. In the late 80s and early 90s, David Jason was particularly famous - starring in British TV comedies such as Only Fools and Horses, his character of Del Boy, was a household name.
Other famous roles included, Pop Larkin in The Darling Buds of May, where he coined the catchphrase "Perfick" and starred with the now hollywood celeb, Catherine Zeta Jones. Other notable roles include Detective Frost, in the long running ITV series A Touch of Frost.
As well as Danger Mouse, David Jason also gave his voice to many other classic cartoons, primarily Count Duckula, the loveable vegetarian, vampire Duck!
Born in 1940, David Jason, is now confirmed to be resting, and taking a retirement. Although, as every actor knows, retirement never lasts - he will undoubtedly be returning to stage or screen at some point, some time, if the role is right, and the timing is right! Hopefully, he'll be back again, as such a loved and familiar face, we can only hope that there will be more to come.
