Cosgrove Hall Wiki

Custard is the first episode in the second series of Cosgrove Hall's 2D animated "Danger Mouse" cartoon series that was first broadcasted on ITV in the UK as five five-part episodes from 4th to 8th October 1982 and was later broadcasted as a single episode on 12th November 1985.


The world is swimming in custard after Greenback booby traps every tin of it to explode. Danger Mouse decides to seek out the only being in the universe that can help: the Custard Mite of Glut.

Arriving on Glut in the Spacehopper, DM and Penfold are captured by the inhabitants of Glut. Incorrectly assuming the visitors want to steal their custard, the Glutians imprision DM and Pedfold in a dungeon which is rapidly filling up with custard.... until it is gobbled up by a Custard Mite! When DM explains the situation, The mite frees him and Penfold, and agrees to join them in flying to Earth.
