I have always loved British comedy. I started with Monty Python and The Goodies on PBS and have never looked back. Dangermouse incorporated much of the same dry, British wit and also had an element of Bullwinkle to it as well. For years, the only versions I could find were on VHS, and even that was a chore. They were okay, but lacked much of the narrators commentary between episodes and had the more politically correct version of Stilletto (without the bad Italian accent. The DVD sets are fantastic. It's the original material in all it's glory. And now that my 4 year old has discovered them, I've got someone to watch Dangermouse and Penfold save the world from the nefarious Baron Greenback without having to get them drunk.
I hold this show, along with The Tomorrow people, entirely responsible for my life-long obsession with British TV shows, and was thrilled beyond belief when I found this box set.
I Actually had the UK 12-disc set first, but my problem with that set was that the episodes were in totally random order, and I could never remember where to find the episodes I wanted to watch.
So, I went ahead and invested in the US set. I'm so glad I did! the episodes seem to be in chronological order, there are lots more navigation options and best of all, there are more funny bits of narration to enjoy. I am, in fact, finding a ton of episodes that I never saw when I was little, so am having a ball watching this set.
The jokes, some of which even I have to admit are pretty bad, absolutely never get old for me. As an adult, however, I think I most appreciate the spectacular voice talent, especially that of David Jason, that was a part of this show.
The only flaw I can think of with this set, and it holds true with the UK set as well, is that on the ancient Danger Mouse VHS tapes I used to have, there were some really great narrator segments in between the episodes. The one with the studio fly immediately springs to mind. I've got a friend who has a DVD recorder/vcr, and am hoping that he can transfer the VHS tapes onto a DVD for me, just for those little extra segments that are sadly missing from the DVDs.
In spite of this one mild disappointment, I would rate this DVD set 10 stars if I could. It is so wonderful to have Danger Mouse back in my life.
Not every episode is a total gem, but that may be because some referents escape me. However, even those episodes that are not my favorite are fun. The complete set even has a couple of episodes that I either missed or were not aired here in the US.
Dangermouse became my favorite cartoon when my daughter was still in her highchair. She would watch DM at the table while I cooked dinner. Recently, she took the role of enabler and "talked me into" buying the series. Her ulterior motive is that I have to lend her the discs. I'm going to have to hold her cat hostage until I get them back.

Too excited to reward myself for a milestone, with this!
'I remember childhood extra early Saturday mornings watching this. I wasn't disappointed,
My son was a huge Danger Mouse fan. I made him a DM costume one Halloween, except he wouldn't keep the ears or eye patch on, so he just looked like a cute little boy in grey... Read morePublished 4 months ago by Luci B
It was such a pleasure to see the Saturday morning cartoons my daughter and I used to watch. Danger Mouse was a favorite as was Banana Man. Thanks for making them available again.Published 5 months ago by Gord
