- The real issue of the day… Dangermouse
Could’ve sworn we had a thread on this already but I can’t find it. Anyway.
Confirmed for the DM remake:
Alexander “Pointless” Armstrong as Dangermouse.
Kevin Eldon as Penfold.
Dave Lamb as the narrator.
I have a good feeling about this.

Interesting fact. One of the reasons that is was so good first time round, was that David Jason and Terry Scott were desperately trying to ‘out do’ each other in the voice booth. It was all very good natured apparently, but as two actors who were very proud of their work, they didn’t want to let the other one win, so to speak. Happens all the time with actors, you can have the other guy stealing the limelight now, can you ?Posted 5 years ago
That’s ‘The Wind in the Willows’ you’re thinking of.
According to this highly reputible website, it was both!Posted 5 years ago
Here, from the horse’s mouth.
Who was the hardest to draw when you worked at Cosgrove Hall [the animation company famous for children’s programmes in the late ’80s and early 90’s]. Dangermouse or Penfold?
Mark Thompson, Lancashire
I didn’t draw any charactors, actually. I was involved in making things for Wind In The Willows and even then I was only making props like miniature plates and chairs. That was the first job I ever had, apart from Tesco.Posted 5 years ago
And… it’s here.
Just watched it, exceeded all my expectations for a modern reboot. Laugh-out-loud funny in places and ticked all the homage boxes. If I was nit-picking I’m not convinced about Penfold, but the rest was on the money.
