Danger Mouse

Aired: 1981-1992

Sure, he’s the greatest. Okay, he’s fantastic. Granted, wherever there’s danger he’ll be there – we’ll give you that. Ultimately, though, Danger Mouse is still a small, smug rodent who interferes with the mail – and if we wanted that we’d just take a look in our office out-tray. The one we’re really here for is Penfold: Jesse to his Walt, a hapless but loveable sidekick who, we’d like to think, was using his quailing, bespectacled persona to run British intelligence without anyone noticing. For a decade the pair filled our teatimes with their struggles with Baron Greenback and his oddball array of villains in a Bond pastiche that David Jason narrated with perma-cocked eyebrow. And now Bond is back in a big way; we’d love to see DM follow suit. Admittedly, we’re not entirely sure how mouse ‘n’ hamster combo would handle international terrorism, but we’re sure they’d think of something.

41 If you want weird, what about Ludwig
A silver egg and some link with Beethoven, I seem to remember...and what about Issy Noho, magic panda...those 70s really were trippy! Good choices elsewhere though, even if I'm a bit too old to remember some of them (the early 90s were post student days, so I missed most of the ones from then...) More

42 Star Fleet
Does anyone else remember this classic? My main memories of it was that the ship (X-Bomber) seemed to spend most of it's time either crashed on planets or not working, and the incredible Dai-X robot that was created by combining three smaller ships together. Brian May even covered the theme tune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7GFU5ncKhU Apologies , that cannot be un-watched, and incidentally featured Eddie Van Halen on guitar... More

44 The Real Ghostbusters
One Episode Of The Real Ghostbusters completely spoiled Citizen Kane for me, even though I was too young to have seen Citizen Kane... One episode had a ghost obsessing about "Rosebud"... Which was revealed to be the same as in Kane, I don't know why that episode stuck with me, but when I saw Kane for the first time in my 30's, I immediately knew what Rosebud probably was. Incidentally - geeky trivia: In The Real Ghostbusters, Venkman was voiced by Lorenzo Music. Music also voiced Garfield in the cartoon series, and Bill Murray then provided the voice for Garfield in the live action films... More

47 Have this conversation about 3 times a month!
Honourable mention must go to the (mostly unheard of) Galaxy Rangers (seriously give it a try!!) My most fondly remembered is easily the Mysterious Cities of Gold (the intro music brought a tear to my eye) Also loved the early 90s cartoon interpretation of Tintin which closely followed the books (not to be confused with the silly 60s Tintin cartoon) More

48 Wheeled Warriors!
Just can't get enough of the Wheeled Warriors intro. It was my favourite as a kid. Don't actually remember much about half the shows beyond their intro sequences. We did feature of the best cartoon intros over at - maskedheroes.co.uk/tag/classic-cartoon-intros/ More

49 RE: Some old favourites here
It really depends on how old you are, but my favourite will always be Battle of the Planets More

50 Some old favourites here
But why Gerry Anderson (or anyone else) never brought back Joe 90 (okay maybe Doll House tried) is something i think of when i seen these sorts of quizzes. Guess we all have our favourites and the list is not long enough More

What? No Samurai Jack? Still can't believe they haven't made D&D into a movie based on the premise of the classic cartoon. Sure as hell couldn't be worse than the one they actually made (or it's slightly better sequels). More

53 Visionaries & Centurions
@ gambit21 - totally remember those cartoons and yes I wanted to be a Knight of Magical Light! More

54 Bucky O'Hare
I can't actually believe there were only 13 episodes of Bucky O'Hare - I used to have a load of action figures related to it too! How short lived! And another I just remembered thats missing - The Hair Bear Bunch and Wacky Races! More

55 RE: Visionaries
Visionaries was one of my favourite shows growing up. Bought the series on DVD a couple of years back and it still holds up: great entertainment. More

56 Visionaries
I remember a show called Visionaries - Knights of the Magical Light. A world where technology had failed and magic had returned - to me the characters look extremely like Centurions. Anyone else remember that? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_fLZLdvwI4 More

I can't believe I still know all the words to the Animaniacs theme tune. Love It! More

Surely Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles should be there??? Or was it too obvious a choice? More
