DangerMouse Returns to Terrestrial TV

LONDON, August 30: DangerMouse, celebrating its 25th anniversary next
month, is returning to terrestrial screens in the U.K. following the BBC’s
acquisition of the classic animation from Fremantle International Distribution.

BBC has acquired for broadcast on BBC Daytime 18 25-minute
episodes along with the first two seasons of 15-minute episodes. “We are
thrilled to celebrate such an important milestone for DangerMouse, and look forward to seeing this witty, cult classic
back on our screens,” said Carol Eymery, the VP of sales for French-speaking
territories, the U.K., Ireland, Italy and Africa at FID. “Twenty-five years on,
the program still holds the same wide appeal it always has for the whole
family, who can enjoy the exploits of this homegrown superhero together.”

DangerMouse ranked as the third most popular kids’ show in Channel 4's
100 Greatest Kids’ TV Shows, which was
voted for by the general public. Originally created and produced by
Cosgrove Hall, DangerMouse first hit TV screens on ITV1 in 1981,
averaging 3.5 million viewers. It has aired in over 80 countries worldwide
including Australia, India, Romania, Trinidad and Zambia.
