Danger Mouse to return to our screens

If you're a child of the '80s rejoice - Danger Mouse and Penfold are being recommissioned for a new series of espionage and intrigue.

The theme tune alone made the show worth tuning into back in the 80s and 90s (He's the greatest. He's fantastic. Wherever there is danger he'll be there. He's the ace, he's amazing, he's the strongest, he's the quickest he's the best. Danger Mouse, Danger Mouse, Danger Mooouusse).

Nearly 30 years after it first screened the British cartoon classic is being updated for a new generation. The rodent's eyepatch will be replaced by an 'i-patch' that will feature all sorts of nifty apps necessary for a spy mouse to operate in the modern world.

"Danger Mouse is the last word in debonair and delightfully eccentric heroics and with Penfold at his side the much-loved duo will win over a whole new generation of fans," Cheryl Taylor, the controller of CBBC told The Telegraph.

Fifty two new 11 minute episodes have been commissioned.
