Colonel K is a character in the television show Danger Mouse.


Colonel K is an anthropomorphized chinchilla (ground squirrel) who is Danger Mouse and Penfold's boss. He is a former kleptomaniac who afterwards worked for a Police force called Special Branch earning him the nickname "Special K". He often contacts them from his office giving them instructions of their latest mission near the beginning of every episode and debriefs them near the end. Some episodes are based on him such as an episode where Baron Greenback enters his brain via a shrinking device to gain top secrets. In some episodes Colonel K has been held hostage. In the episode "Danger K" it was shown that he used to be a secret agent called danger K. It was revealed in the reboot episode "Escape From Big Head" that he was once sent to a gulag in Siberia, meaning that he was , at one point spying in Communist Russia.


Colonel K is sometimes absent minded and talks nonsense which annoys DM and Penfold, though he gets annoyed with them for not responding instantly to his call. He likes to keep himself occupied with sports and other pastimes. So far he has also been a champion piano thrower, a decorated judo expert, the first to climb Mount Everest on a Pogo stick, has been a Eskimo and taken up tap dancing. He is extremely jolly and loves joke puns. He always says "Good show" whenever DM and Penfold respond to his transmission and "Over and Out" when he finishes though he sometimes forgets. Despite his tendency to be annoying, DM and Penfold are pleased to have him as their boss.
