Cosgrove Hall Wiki

The Man from Gadget is the eighth episode in the fifth season of Cosgrove Hall's original 2D animated "Danger Mouse" TV series that was first broadcasted on ITV in the UK on 9th April 1984.


Agent 57 sends word to H.Q. that Greenback has build his latest hideaway on a pinnacle of rock in the middle of a volcanic crater in Northen Iceland. Furthermore, 57 has disguised himself as a flat battery, so the Baron can't start his Froghead flyer. When Dangermouse and Penfold arrive on the scene, they bump into Grigious M. Murphy, a gadget salesman who tries to interest them in a personal combat accessory kit.
