5.0 out of 5 stars Good grief! Every episode ever!, 11 Sept. 2006
This review is from: Dangermouse - 25th Anniversary Box Set (12 Disc Ultimate Collection) [DVD] [1981] (DVD)
For those of you who came in late: popular kids cartoon of the 1980's, dangermouse is the world's greatest secret agent. From his base beneath a pillar box in mayfair, he and his trusty assistant penfold fight the evil plans of the diabolical toad baron silas greenback.

A hugely popular show at the time, and one that can be enjoyed by both kids and grown ups, thanks to it's smart self knowing humour. On many occasions characters will reference the fact that they are starring in a cartoon, and the fourth wall gets broken regularly.

The dvd does indeed contain every episode ever made. Not entirely sure how the count is reached, as some were fifteen minutes long, and some were five short five minute episodes combined into one five part story. The prints clearly haven't been touched as the five parters have been edited together, and are probably still the same prints of these that were used for the the video releases twenty years ago. But the picture quality is fine, and it's delightfully nostalgic to see the thames tv logo again at the front of them.

Extras are rather cursory. A few behind your scenes features and interviews taken from tv shows made a long time ago, and a handful of games. An unbroadcast pilot episode is an interesting curio as the voices of the main characters are completely different.

But no matter. This is every episode ever made of one of the best cartoon shows, at a reasonable enough price. A great package.
