The all-new series of Danger Mouse has proved a hit with young audiences, topping the ratings in its return to TV on CBBC.
The animated series has become the best performing new kids’ show of 2015 for children aged 6 to 12 and 4 to 15, based on average figures for the first 15 episodes using data from industry ratings body BARB.
In addition, Danger Mouse – voiced by comedian, actor and Pointless host Alexander Armstrong – is No. 1 in its time slot for boys 4-9 (across all channels) and is also No. 1 for 4-15 year olds (among dedicated children’s channels).
Danger Mouse returned to TV screens with a 21st century gadget-packed, gag-laden makeover on Sept. 28, 23 years after the last series aired.
So far, a total of 2.4 million people have seen Danger Mouse on TV during the first three weeks of the run, with more than two million views on the BBC’s iPlayer catch-up service.
