Three episodes in I'm really liking Danger Mouse, they have the tone dead right. Not 100% happy with the CGI they occasionally use, but that's just me being old-fashioned. The first two stories were OK but nothing special, but tonight's episode got up to the peaks of silliness that is classic DM, with giant Welsh singing plants and Penfold's jam-making obsession vital to the plot. Recommended!

I've made a page for the series on fanlore.org, if anyone knows of any good fanfic or fan art please let me know.

I enjoy the new voice cast and like the fact that Stiletto is obviously Italian but with Cockney undertones. Not so sure about the redesign of the world with the characters being anthropomorphic, human sized animals rather than the original animal apocalypse scenario (http://www.cracked.com/article_20090_6-creepy-things-you-never-noticed-about-famous-kids-cartoons_p2.html #2) My biggest complaint, however, is that they don't credit Mike Harding with the original song.

Yes, the human sized thing annoys me too. Hadn't noticed about the song.

later - forgot to say thanks for the link to Cracked - I've added it to the fanlore article.

I was amused to read on Wikipedia that for American broadcasts of the original series, Stiletto's accent was changed to cockney and his surname dropped to avoid offending Italian Americans.

I'm wondering if they will be allowed to show tonight's episode on American TV. The whole lavatory thing might possibly be considered offensive...
