The Best Programme Ever Made.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dangermouse - 25th Anniversary Box Set (12 Disc Ultimate Collection) [DVD]  (DVD)
With the duo of David Jason and Terry Scott playing the lead characters you really do get spoliled. David Jason had been in the public spotlight earlier and in this helped him tremendously, the voice straight away tells you how good he's going to be! Terry Scott voices penfold perfectly and casting him meant that you knew that his comic acting was going to be used well. I'm 20 and saw Dangermouse when i was about 3,4 or 5 and loved it so much that I remembered it all the way through my childhood and no adult T.V programme or kids programme has been any better. There are jokes within this that kids won't get, this isn't a bad thing. If you buy this DVD your kids/you will love it and when the kids get older they will watch it and adore it more.
You will see the same shot again and again but this adds to the enjoyment because you know the budget wasn't much and you will compare it to cartoons today. The characters even mention the fact its the same again and again. The evil doers that DM and Penfold have to overcome are fantastically thought up. It really is a wonderful programme.
Soon the whole nation will be saying "Crumbs" and "Si Barone", please.

The American DVDS are better because they're all in season box sets in production order, plus are shown in their original 5 minute episode serial continuation versions, rather than the more recently edited half an hour episode versions, and they have the original UK Voices because America lost their master copies that they re-voiced in the 1980's for American audiences, so had to use original UK Voice Master Copies for their DVD releases.
