Danger Mouse is a fantastic programme great for children and adults alike. We have a particular affection for this cartoon as it has a bit of all my favourite fictional detectives

Danger Mouse has been a household name since his creation in the 1980s. The children's animated television series is about a cartoon secret agent mouse and his bumbling hamster sidekick, Penfold. Together they are given assignments by their walrus commander, Colonel K to save the world from their arch enemies including Baron Silas Greenback and numerous others.

Baron Greenback is a frog who has a striking resemblance to a James Bond enemy , Ernst Stavro Blofeld (SPECTRE Number 1). Much like Bond, DM enjoys fast cars and wonderful crime fighting gadgets. Although Danger Mouse is intended for children it is written on many levels with references to other fictional crime fighters and do gooders such as Dr Who and Indiana Jones. It should also be mentioned that Danger Mouse lives in a red post box just outside of the Baker Street residence of Sherlock Holmes.

For many the job title Private Detective or Private Investigator suggests a romantic and secretive profession. The investigators at Private Detective Manchester are often asked by clients if they can carry out tasks that only a fictional detective or spy such as Danger Mouse, James Bond or Sherlock Holmes could perform.

Although a lot of the gadgets and methods can be used in real life, sadly not all the stunts and action from books or in film can.

A spokesperson from Private Detective Manchester said:
“Danger Mouse is a fantastic programme great for children and adults alike. We have a particular affection for this cartoon as it has a bit of all my favourite fictional detectives”.
