YES! They’re home.
Ladies and gentlemen, the greatest secret agent in the world is back in September. And he’s bringing awesome with him. The BBC has just released a one-minute trailer for the new Danger Mouse series, and frankly it’s brilliant.
Ordinarily, we wouldn’t be excited about a reboot. You’ve only got to look at our collective reaction to Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters. But this is just gold-plated brilliant. From the Force Unleashed trailer parody, to Kevin Eldon’s channeling of Terry Scott as the voice of Penfold, to the animation that’s slicker and smoother than Shaft himself, there’s honestly nothing to hate here. The only reservation I’ve got is that the theme music rearrangement’s too heavy on the synth, but this looks even better than we thought it would.
I think I need a lie down…
