Danger Mouse

Don’t ask me what got me thinking about this. Danger Mouse was my son’s favorite cartoon when he was a little boy, and we spent many hours together watching this witty yet inane British cartoon. DM was a spoof of every spy thriller ever made, and after saving the world from the latest outlandish threat concocted by an equally outlandish cast of bad guys, the one eyed wonder would respond, with typical British understatement, “It’s just a job, really.”

Equally entertaining was his repartee with his high strung valet and sidekick, Penfold, who would usually respond to any crisis by exclaiming “Oh, crumbs”, and then just generally fall to pieces until his master calmed him down with the admonition, “Penfold, shush!”

For those of you who actually might find this kind of thing intriguing, there is (believe it or not) a Danger Mouse home page. It’s worth a visit.

    “Oh, crumbs…”
    Something I like about that phrase.
    And the name Penfold.
    Can’t remember the cartoon though…
