Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Danger Mouse is a much-loved spy spoof whose age does nothing to tarnish its entertainment value. The resourceful protagonist usually divides his energy between unraveling Greenback's plots and rescuing hapless Penfold from one mistake after another, but true to form, he always manages to save the day just in the nick of time. You don't have to be familiar with spy movie tropes to enjoy these stories, but for parents who are and who watch with their kids, the subtle parodies are a fun change of pace.

With clean content throughout, an all-animal cast, and plenty of silly predicaments for the heroes, kids will find a lot to like in this classic. Need another reason to give it a try? This globe-trotting series incorporates aspects of its various settings in ways that introduce kids to notable geography, culture, and artistic qualities of each area, all without seeming (at least to kids) the least bit educational. All in all, that's good stuff from a fun show.
