Originally produced by Cosgrove Hall Films for Thames Television, Danger Mouse ran on ITV from 1981 to 1992. Licensed to thrill a 21st-century audience, the iconic animation blasted back to TV screens with a gadget-packed, gag-laden makeover on CBBC in September 2015. An instant ratings and critical success, it is now in its third series. One of Danger Mouse’s original and most popular villains, Count Duckula enjoyed a successful TV spin-off of his own.
