The world’s greatest secret agent is being reactivated, and he’s armed with more nostalgia than Austin Powers and Agent Steed combined. Fremantle Productions are working with Boulder Media to bring Danger Mouse back to our screens in 2015. Which is a pity, because we wanted to do more with the rest of this year than waiting impatiently for it to end.
Danger Mouse was a masterpiece of cartooning, cute with kabooms for the kids, but stuffed with smarter jokes and smirks for the adults watching with them. The reboot promises to upgrade DM with high tech gadgetry to suit the modern audience, but the real test will be whether it preserves the hilarious ability to entertain all audiences. And we’re already looking forward to seeing what they do with the Mach 5: the coolest and least aerodynamic flying car in existence.
