Fremantle Media Kids & Family and CBBC have jointly announced the return of the World’s Greatest Secret Agent, Danger Mouse, for its 2nd season of animated adventures. The season was ordered by CBBC Controller Cheryl Taylor and is part of Fremantle Media kids & Family’s 5-year co pro partnership with BBC Children’s.
The new Danger Mouse series debuted back in September 2015 and became an overnight ratings success, thanks to the fanbase enjoyed by its lead character and his hapless hamster sidekick, Penfold. The new series continues the franchise’s penchance for gadgetry, action, and wholesome humor.
“It’s a funny old world. You get no series of Danger Mouse for 23 years and then two come along at once,” said Kevin Eldon, the voice of Penfold. “All right, there’s been 18 months between them but who’s counting? I’m really looking forward to getting back into squeak mode as Danger Mouse’s trusty if somewhat trembly sidekick Penfold. I’m sure we can expect lots of fabulous adventures featuring even more dastardly dastardliness and even more heroic heroicness. Is that a word? I’m not sure but I know one word that is definitely a word and that is: crumbs!”
