 in 2007.

London, one of the nerve centers of world government. And in the midst of a complex web of streets and buildings, in a quiet corner of Mayfair, lives the greatest guardian of peace and justice in the civilized world. A secret agent so secret that even his codename has a codename. Yes, Danger Mouse! To the down-trodden, a hero! To the evil, a ruthless enemy!

Danger Mouse's trusted assistant, Ernest Penfold. Codename: The Jigsaw, because when he's faced with a problem, he goes to pieces.

[As Penfold falls through the air at the end of the episode] Will it be Isaac Newton 1: Penfold nil? Tune in next time to find out!

London. And in mild Mayfair, within a peculiar perpendicular pillar box, disguised dome of the death-defying duo, Danger Mouse the daring and Penfold the pathetic!

And so we come to the confusion of another classically confusing conflict. Can the wretched robot be reconstructed or will he end up as rabbit rubbish? And what of Quark? Quark! Oh, gosh. To find out, join the tune, and see the next adventure of Danger Moose, I mean, Mouse. Sorry about that, J.J., or Jimmy, or...(fade out ad-lib)

[Repeated line] Penfold, shush.

[Repeated line] Good grief!

Good heavens, Penfold. I never knew you could run like that!

By the way, Penfold, your library books are overdue!
