Danger Mouse is returning to TV.

After a 33 year hiatus, the heroic rodent will be making his comeback to face off dastardly enemies and embark on deadly missions in a new animated comedy series.

In co-production with FremantleMedia Kids and Family, the new series is set to launch on CBBC in 2015.

A popular carton during the 80s and 90s, Danger Mouse sported an iconic eye-patch and was voiced by Sir David Jason.

In a 21st century twist, the rodent will now sport an i-patch, a gadget featuring multiple technological functions.

While it is unconfirmed who will lend their voice to the secret agent mouse in the new series, Fremantle has revealed that DM’s trusty sidekick Penfold will also be making his return to help in his hapless adventures.

Cheryl Taylor, Controller of CBBC said: "Danger Mouse is the last word in debonair and delightfully eccentric heroics and with Penfold at his side the much-loved duo will win over a whole new generation of fans.

"CBBC is thrilled to be kick-starting their adventures afresh with our equally enthusiastic partners Boulder and FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment."
