“He’s the greatest, he’s fantastic, wherever there is danger, he’ll be there!”
.

Yep this isn’t a typo, the huuugely loved and classic animated show DangerMouse which followed the adventures of the world’s greatest secret agent and his ever-nervous sidekick Penfold is set to make a comeback of on CBBC with 52 new episodes next year. Exciting!

Taking the TV by storm from back in 1981 and running all the way to 1992, DangerMouse (voiced by Sir David Jason) became one of the top shows of the 80s with a whole generation of kids turning in for their famous adventures and of course…those catchphrases :)

After over 20 years absence, DM and trusty sidekick will return this time to CBBC and will come complete with a whole heap of 21st century gadgets to help them with protect the world from the dastardly likes of Baron Greenback.

We can’t wait to see these guys back in action once again but given a modern twist as while Danger Mouse and Penfold’s HQ will continue to be in a classic red post box, it will now be packed with cutting-edge technology even with his iconic eye-patch becoming an ‘iPatch’!

Such a great way to get some 80s nostalgia back onto the airwaves as well as introducing some of the classic characters to a new generation of cartoon lovers.


So what do you think? Excited to see the new episodes hit the screen or would you rather leave the show as it was and keep the 80s magic alive?

Can’t wait to get stuck into some Danger Mouse action? Take a look at our fab range of funky Danger Mouse mugs, t-shirts, wallets and more….

The Good Old TV Times!

by Aaron Buckley on November 22, 2012

Led on your belly with head on hands, in front of a faux wooden box on top an oak cabinet, eyes as wide as saucers glued awaiting the evening’s entertainment! Four channels is all we had and even so we’d only watch two of them.

Being the youngest, the family hierarchy dictates that you be the remote control. Dad would direct you to the channel to switch as you stodgily walk on knees to the big brown box. After a while you’d try and tempt fate by switching channels whilst dad was sleeping only to hear a muffled but firm “I was watching that”! Then you’d rush back to your spot on the sofa trying whole heartedly to blame your older sister only to get the evil eye off both off them.

Sure we were telly addicts but who wasn’t?

Straight home from school the big brown box would be glowing with luminescent joy and we’d watch, Thundercats, Masters of the Universe, Inspector Gadget, Danger Mouse, Bugs Bunny on Rolf’s Cartoon Club, Happy Days, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and just before bedtime Only Fools and Horses and Cheers.

The theme music to Poirot and Lovejoy still send shivers down my spine and give me that queasy “I have school tomorrow” feeling and have most likely forgotten any homework I had and do I have P.E?

On the bright side here’s a few T.V. themes to get you through the day so you don’t have to think about school and hey we’re grownups now and we never have to go to school ever again :-)

Hi my name’s Simon and I’m a Chunkaholic. There I said it. Now, If you haven’t come across any of our men’s T-shirts from Chunk then you’re in for a right treat. I’ll start with a quick history lesson…

Chunk started back in 2001 having launched some designs all based on the Haynes Car Manuals iconic cover illustrations. Ten years on and Chunk is now one of the UK’s leading urban street-wear labels. Chunk’s ethos was, and still is, to produce great designs on quality garments, targeting 18-35 year old males with a strong emphasis on cool nostalgia. Famous for their bold graphics, tongue-in-cheek humour and unique design quirks, Chunk now has worked with some of the biggest licenses in the world, which include Marvel, Hanna Barbera, Fremantle Media (Danger Mouse) and Lucas Films (Star Wars) – for which Chunk won a licensing award in 2007 for its Star Wars range. The future promises to be incredibly bright for Chunk as the brand expands into even more retro goodness further cementing its reputation as a great British brand.

With TruffleShuffle.com offering a massive range of amazing retro t-shirts, gifts and accessories we get to see cool new stuff all the time. But for me nothing matches the excitement of a new Chunk catalogue turning up because I know it will be full of amazing new designs. It’s their ‘outside the box’ approach to designing a t-shirt that I love, generally taking a familiar character such as Darth Vader or Mr.T and putting them in an unusual situation, IT’S GENIUS. I could only wish that when I’m down at the coast for a cheeky weekend surf that I catch a Stormtrooper ‘out the back’ riding that perfect wave or driving past my local scrap yard would reveal that Mr.T, Luke and Bo Duke, Michael Knight and the Trotters famous ‘rides’ had reached the end of their lives (probably due to the government Scrappage scheme!!). Only t-shirts from Chunk make this happen.
