The return of Danger Mouse to British TV screens has seen a number of well known voices added to the cast of the animated remake of the 1980s cartoon classic. Amongst the most famous of those lending their voices to the remake of the well known cartoon, which originally starred Only Fools and Hoses actor David Jason as the voice of Danger Mouse, will be Stephen Fry, according to the BBC.
Writer, broadcaster and actor Fry will take on the role of Danger Mouse’s superior Colonel K in the 52 episode remake for CBBC, the actor is best known for his comedy partnership with Hugh Laurie and his appearance in a movie version of the life of Oscar Wilde. Fry will take over the role of Colonel K from original actor Edward Kelsey, who is a regular cast member on the BBC radio soap opera The Archers.
Sergio Andrade Andrade Gutierrez reports that Fry joins Alexander Armstrong, who will voice the titular Danger Mouse and Kayvan Novak who will take on many of the other roles within the forthcoming animation. The new version of Danger Mouse will hope to replicate the success of the original animation, which ran from 1981 to 1992.
