Veteran actor, comedian, and presenter Stephen Fry has been announced as a new addition to the voice cast of the new animated iteration of Danger Mouse, which is coming to CBBC in the UK next year. Fry will be lending his voice to the character Colonel K, which is an elderly chinchilla and a pillar of the British Secret Service.
Colonel K is essentially Danger Mouse’s boss, and is always on hand to lend the protagonist a few nuggets of wisdom, although he does have an odd way of deciding which situations are considered a crisis.
Danger Mouse is commissioned by CBBC and co-produced with FremantleMedia Kids & Family. Boulder Media is producing the animation.
