Cosgrove Hall Wiki

Public Enemy No. 1 is the ninth and final episode in the fourth season of Cosgrove Hall's 2D animated cartoon series of "Danger Mouse" that was first debuted as five five-parted episodes on ITV in the UK from 23rd to 27th May 1983 and it was later debuted on ITV in the UK as a single episode on 17th December 1985.


Just when he's infiltrated Baron Greenbacks secret hideout, Danger Mouse loses his memory after a crash on the head. GB takes advantage of the situation by making DM believe he is the second greatest criminal mastermind in the world, the White Shadow. In this new guise, DM immediately goes off on a relentless crime spree, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor.
