It's good to see Nero do more than just be Greenback's pet. And the "loony fan" plotline is always good for a laugh. I can't believe the show's reached a hiatus already. Hopefully, it won't last too long.

That last one felt like a proper mid-series finale, with three major faces returning (Quark, Jeporday, and Loocifer), plus cameos from some old ones (Snowman was in there). I enjoyed the thumb wrestling solution required to temporarily avoid fighting each other, even if it went pear-shaped after the confession vlogs were ran. Penfold did'nt make one though, which just goes to show what a nice guy he is. He ended up winning the trophy in the end too, even if by accident.

The bit about turning the Earth into a ball for a game of Pong was a little in-joke to the last episode of the classic series where the Earth was going to be turned into a cue ball for a game of snooker

So does anyone reckon the ending of the episode was a cliffhanger?

Maybe, or maybe it was just a joke. Either way, it was a fun episode. I enjoyed all the comebacks (Jeopardy especially), as well as the resolution.

There was a small vignette featuring DM and Penfold on last night's edition of Strictly-It Takes Two, where they bungled their way through some dance moves. Penfold was wearing his princess outfit from "Pink Dawn"

The first DVD release of the series comes out on November 2nd




And DM has proven a ratings winner

The all-new series of Danger Mouse has proved a colossal hit with young audiences, topping the ratings with a triumphant return to TV on CBBC.

The animated series, starring dynamic secret agent, Danger Mouse has become the best performing new kids' show of 2015 for children aged 6 to 12 and 4 to 15, based on average figures for the first 15 episodes using data from industry ratings body BARB.

In addition Danger Mouse – voiced by comedian, actor and Pointless host Alexander Armstrong - is the #1 in its time slot for boys 4-9 (across all channels) and is also #1 for 4 – 15 year olds (among dedicated children's channels).

Danger Mouse returned to TV screens with a 21st century gadget-packed, gag-laden makeover on 28th September – exactly 23 years after the last series aired. The rebooted show got off to an amazing start and the series featured seven times in BARB’s Top 10 CBBC programmes in the first week of transmission alone.

So far, a total of 2.4 million people have seen the debonair hero on TV during the first three weeks of the run, with over two million views on the BBC's iPlayer catch-up service.

Excitement about the show continues to build, along with the viewing figures. The total audience (which also includes adult fans) grew by 11% between weeks one and three. And the increase is even higher for 4 to 15-year-olds, amounting to 14% in the same time-frame. The rise for the audience aged from 6 to 12 is also 14%.

As well as enjoying an afternoon slot on CBBC, the programmes have been given a morning repeat screening, which has led to Danger Mouse becoming the highest rating morning kids TV show – judged by best performing episode – so far this year for 4-15 year old. It is also the highest rated show of the year so far among 4 to 9 year-old boys*. [*across dedicated kids channels]

Rick Glankler, EVP and General Manager FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment said: “We are absolutely thrilled with these ratings. We anticipated from our early screenings that the public were going to like the show so we are delighted to learn that Danger Mouse is entertaining hundreds of thousands of children and their parents across the country.”

Combining high energy, top class storytelling, surreal comedy and brilliant visuals, the new rebooted series also features an incredible array of voice talent. The star-studded cast features the likes of Stephen Fry, Lena Headey, Richard Ayoade and Richard Osman, as well as Kevin Eldon as Danger Mouse’s sidekick Penfold.

The world's greatest secret agent is not only thrilling a whole new generation in the UK, but he is set to grow a global audience when the series rolls out internationally on Netflix and on free-to-air broadcasters from next spring.

Commissioned by Controller of CBBC, Cheryl Taylor, the co-production with FremantleMedia Kids & Family is being animated by Boulder Media, with Sarah Muller executive producer for CBBC, and Bob Higgins and Chapman Maddox executive producers for FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment. FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment owns the global TV and licensing rights to the series.

Looks like this hiatus is going to last a little longer, as we go right back to "Danger At C-Level" next week (they're skipping the pilot), and the show has now been moved to a 3:15 PM time slot.

Details on the Christmas special. Looks like it'll be another half-hour special like the pilot.

It’s Christmas! And Danger Mouse (Alexander Armstrong) and Penfold (Kevin Eldon) are tasked with protecting Santa Claus from the villainous clutches of the festive season destroying Snowman.
Embarrassingly inept villain The Snowman is fed up with being humiliatingly defeated by Danger Mouse, and decides to get revenge by kidnapping Santa Claus.

This time DM and Penfold’s attempts to thwart the Snowman end in disaster with the villain super-powered by Christmas spirit and Santa’s hat! In a whirlwind of bah and humbug the Snowman sabotages the festive holiday and threatens to destroy the world by freezing the earth. DM must lead an army of elves and a rejuvenated Santa to battle the Snowman and melt his evil plans.

This fantastically festive Christmas special is double-length for more fun-packed, family fun! Featuring guest cast Richard Ayoade who voices the Snowman, and Brian Blessed as Santa Claus, it has all the trimmings and just about every Christmas cliché you can think of.

It's weird how they call him Santa Claus instead of Father Christmas.
Why? I'd say he's more commonly known as Santa Claus in the UK than Father Christmas.

Yeah, Father Christmas is definitely falling into disuse nowadays. When you visit him at shopping centres, you're going to Santa's Grotto. That's how ubiquitous the name Santa is.

Oh crumbs...apparently the Christmas special aired on the 16th over on the CBBC Channel and I missed it. Ah well, at least it'll still be on Christmas Day on BBC ONE.

Here's a clip from it

Thanks, I might wait until the 25th as I don't watch a hell of a lot of cartoons as it is on the day like I used to, then again I'm useless at waiting when something's available

Decided to wait it out until Christmas morning. I saw it, and had a blast. Sqauwkencluck refusing outright to believe in Santa despite every other character being aware of him and interacting with him was an odd but amusing trait. DM and Penfold constantly giving her hair dryers as gifts prompted a plot bunny for a fanfic I wrote today, poor Snowman, the nature of his character means they can keep doing utterly brutal things to him (like slayriding him through the sun), and he'll find a way to spring back from it if the weather's a bit nippy. I wonder if he can come back from this though?

I liked DM also trying to rely on the normal running time of an episode to thwart Snowman's plan, but then the narrator reminds him it's a half hour special.

And we got our first glimpse of the revamped Count Duckula in a short cameo where he gets into a fight with the other villains. Alas, he didn't have a speaking part.

Finally. We get to see the revamped Duckula. Who knows? If it's well received, maybe it'll lead to a revivial of his show too.
