The greatest mouse detective in the world returns in Danger Mouse, Day of The Suds
. These deliciously witty cartoon adventures drip with wacky, self-deprecating humour while dishing up spoofs, satire and silliness. Conceived by the immensely creative writing team of Brian Trueman and Mike Harding, our title character (voiced by David Jason) is a secret agent rodent who rids the world of dastardly deeds. Diminutive yet dashing, Danger Mouse follows Colonel K's orders while his faithful sidekick, Penfold, offers bumbling assistance. These three episodes follow the shameless schemes of evil nemesis, Baron Greenback. In one, he unleashes an army of washing machines to soak the city of London in sinister suds; in another, Penfold is kidnapped and Danger Mouse must complete four tasks to free him. Whether it's kamikaze twin-tubs or a floating cloud of bad luck, Danger Mouse confronts the enemy with nary a trace of violence. Though the television series (of the early 80s) was short-lived, Danger Mouse transcends cheesy Saturday morning fare, appealing to all ages. --Lynn Gibson, Amazon.com
