Cosgrove Hall Wiki

The Four Tasks of Danger Mouse is a 5-parted episode in Series 2 of Cosgrove Hall's original 2D animated cartoon series of "Danger Mouse" that was broadcasted on ITV in the UK from 8th to 12th February 1982 and it was later broadcasted as a single episode on 3rd December 1985.


Penfold has been kidnapped by Baron Greenback, who forces Dangermouse to gather together four ingredients of an ancient spell for creating an invincible monster. They are: four hairs from a Yeti, a twig from a Witches Broom, a piece of the dreaded Fog Monster of old London town and two feathers from a vampire duck. In the middle of all this, another mission comes up, this one to buy a washing machine on sale for the PM's missus.
