Alexander Armstrong will voice Danger Mouse in the show’s upcoming reboot.
The comedian will step into the shoes so memorably filled by David Jason in the animation classic’s original run. Comedian and actor Kevin Eldon will voice Penfold, with Shauna MacDonald taking on the role of Professor Squawkencluck – the niece of the original Professor.
Morwenna Banks will also voice a variety of characters throughout the series.
Armstrong has spoken on his new vocal position;
“As a lifelong fan of Danger Mouse I was ecstatic just to know that the show was coming back. To be actually involved with the reboot and to be taking DM out to a whole new generation is about as close to a dream job as you could wish for.”
On being the new voice of Penfold, Kevin Eldon said;
“I’m absolutely delighted to be the new voice of Danger Mouse’s trusty sidekick Penfold. It’s a role and not a mole, Penfold’s not a mole, he’s a hamster that I’m going to really enjoy. When I am recording the episodes, I’ll be making sure that at all times my eyebrows are at least three inches above my head.”
The new Danger Mouse will air on CBBC in 2015.
