We need to add "The Mighy B" into the mix.

Amy Poehler is one of the creators and she's lends her voice talents for the main character, Bessie Higgenbottom (aka Mighty B). Easily #2 for me, behind Spongebob.

Danger Mouse Reboot Gets 52-Episode Order, Horrible Histories Writer
Brendon Connelly wrote:It’s been in the works for a while but the official announcement dropped overnight. Danger Mouse is being rebooted by Ireland’s Boulder Media, and Horrible Histories‘ Ben Ward is on board to write the scripts.

We don’t know – yet – who will be providing the voices, but that’s already some serious talent behind the camera… er, drawing boa… er… computer.

Some things will be updated, of course, and DM’s new eyepatch is going to be more Google Glass than Arrr! Me Hearties.

The original Cosgrove Hall series ran for about ten years and was, quite regularly, brilliant. When a nostalgia weekend on CITV led to some repeats a year or so ago, Danger Mouse gave the channel its highest ever ratings.

Fraggle Rock and Knightmare did very well too, you know. I’m just saying.

A run of 52 new Danger Mouse episodes, eleven minutes apiece, will screen on CBBC from next year.

{TB EXCLUSIVE} ’90S NICKTOONS SET TO MAKE A COMEBACK IN PARAMOUNT CROSSOVER MOVIE
Rugrats, Angry Beavers, Hey Arnold!, Rocko’s Modern Life, Ren and Stimpy, and more are coming together for what’s being pitched as a Justice League or Avenger’s-esque team-up film called NICKTOONS.

Clark Allen wrote:Paramount is developing a live-action/animation hybrid based on the classic cartoons

Now more than ever, the intense wave of 1990s nostalgia is at its height, with a slew of upcoming TV shows and movies planned to capitalize on the collective desire for a return of these cherished properties. Just this week even, Nickelodeon announced a plan to reboot ’90s favorites in a fresh new way.

Well, it’s time for millennials to rejoice, because the beloved Nickelodeon cartoon series of the ’90s are making a return in the biggest way possible. Sources exclusively confirm to The Tracking Board that Paramount Pictures is in the early stages of developing a massive live-action/animated crossover film featuring characters from hit ’90s Nick cartoons. Rugrats, Angry Beavers, Hey Arnold!, Rocko’s Modern Life, Ren and Stimpy, and more are coming together for what’s being pitched as a Justice League or Avenger’s-esque team-up film called NICKTOONS.

Citing The Lego Movie, Space Jam, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, and Wreck It Ralph as influences, Nicktoons is poised to follow a similar model, employing a hefty amount of self-referential humor and charm.

Our sources say that Mary Parent is leading the charge on this one, working with the studio to develop and lock down the rights to the individual series. Parent and Cale Boyter are producing the pic via their shingle, Disruption Entertainment, which signed an overall deal with Paramount this past March.

Parent of course has a proven track record with adapting Nickelodeon cartoons into successful features, having produced this year’s Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water. Nickelodeon Movies, which is a subsidiary of Paramount, is also producing, while Elizabeth Raposo will oversee for the studio.

Paramount is currently in discussions with different writers, looking for the perfect scribe to tackle a project balancing such immensely beloved properties.

Naysayers ought not to fear, as our sources say that the creators have no intentions to bastardize or update the characters unfavorably, only to create a fun adventure reuniting audiences with the treasured cartoons in an exciting new approach, pleasing old fans and creating new ones. Though, creators have to tread lightly, as they run the risk of making another Rugrats Go Wild, which was an ill-received and poorly conceived crossover that just didn’t mesh.

In this reporter’s opinion, news of the project is mind-blowing, but it’s that kind of crazy where the film could potentially be the best thing ever. Though all the included series haven’t yet been ironed out, we’re hoping Catdog, Ahh!!! Real Monsters, and Doug are also invited to the party, because that would be awesome.

This sounds like a terrible idea that will either never happen or make a billion dollars

I assume they will use the Ren & Stimpy of old and not the kinky Ren & Stimpy of SpikeTV fame.

I really don't like the idea

On the other hand I would watch A Rabbids vs. Minions movie so what do I know.

{EXCLUSIVE} “DANGER MOUSE” ANIMATED FEATURE IN THE WORKS WITH NEAL MORITZ AND SONY
A rebooted Danger Mouse series premiered last month, and now producers are eyeing a big screen debut for the world’s greatest–and tiniest–secret agent
Josh Lyons wrote:He’s the strongest, he’s the quickest, he’s the best, and now he’s headed to the big screen. An animated DANGER MOUSE feature has been set up at StudioCanal and Sony Pictures Animation. The film is being produced by Original Film and Fremantle Media. Neal Mortiz will produce with Toby Ascher overseeing for Original.

While details on the plot are still being kept under wraps, sources say that the movie will offer clues to the origins of the world’s greatest secret agent–an agent so secret that his codename has a codename–and who just so happens to be a mouse living underneath MI6 headquarters.

The British cartoon series, created by Brian Cosgrove and Mark Hall, originally ran from 1981 to 1992. The show intended to serve as a send-up of more serious British cold war spy fiction, namely James Bond and Danger Man. Danger Mouse, along with his hamster sidekick Ernest Penfold, travels the globe solving mystery, fighting crime, and stopping villains like the mad scientist wolf Doctor Augustus P. Crumhorn III.

After years of rumors, the updated Danger Mouse reboot aired its first episode just last month on CBBC, with original creator Cosgrove serving as a creating consultant, and featuring the voices of John Oliver, Lena Headly and Kevin Eldon as the eponymous mouse. In conjunction with the reboot, it now appears that producers are bringing Danger Mouse to the movies.

Despite the fact that the reboot launched only weeks ago, it should come as no surprise that a feature adaptation of Danger Mouse is already in the works. Other popular cartoon characters who have made the jump to the big screen have proven to be slam dunk successes, given their massive built-in audiences and international appeal. This year’s The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water grossed over $300 million worldwide, while even a lesser-known figure like Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius took in over $100 million against a $30 million budget. And earlier this year, Paddington, based on the classic Paddington Bear books–another distinctly British series–became the highest grossing non-Hollywood produced family film in history with over $200 million in global receipts. Numbers like that seem to have caught the attention of Mortiz and Sony–although such savvy producers must be keenly aware that a Peabody and Sherman debacle is always a risk.

The development of a feature following the reboot of a beloved cartoon character is becoming a trend in Hollywood. Nickelodeon is creating a channel dedicated to their 90’s animated shows, and here at the Tracking Board we broke the news that, indeed, an Avenger’s-style 90s Nick-Toons film is in the works. Again, just last week, we broke news that Sony Pictures Animation was developing an animated Ghostbusters feature in an effort to ride the wave of popularity generated by that franchise’s current reboot. And just yesterday, sources confirmed to The Tracking Board that a Dennis the Menace remake is in the works as well.

With the new Danger Mouse series already positioned to draw in old viewers and new, producers of the film are now seeking a British-based writer with a deep familiarity of the character to tackle the script. The ideal choice would be a screenwriter who can honor the tradition of the franchise, while still updating the character enough to meet the expectations of his newest–and youngest–fans.
