Danger Mouse Reboot Gets 52-Episode Order, Horrible Histories Writer

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 10.40.54It’s been in the works for a while but the official announcement dropped overnight. Danger Mouse is being rebooted by Ireland’s Boulder Media, and Horrible HistoriesBen Ward is on board to write the scripts.

We don’t know – yet – who will be providing the voices, but that’s already some serious talent behind the camera… er, drawing boa… er… computer.

Some things will be updated, of course, and DM’s new eyepatch is going to be more Google Glass than Arrr! Me Hearties.

The original Cosgrove Hall series ran for about ten years and was, quite regularly, brilliant. When a nostalgia weekend on CITV led to some repeats a year or so ago, Danger Mouse gave the channel its highest ever ratings.

Fraggle Rock and Knightmare did very well too, you know. I’m just saying.

A run of 52 new Danger Mouse episodes, eleven minutes apiece, will screen on CBBC from next year.
