Cosgrove Hall Wiki

Tiptoe Through the Penfolds is the third 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 5th March 1984.


Greenback reveals his latest secret weapon in the Albert Hall: A Magnetic Molecular Molder. A machine capable of making hundreds of duplicates of anyone. The Baron plans to make a thousand copies of himself. Unfortunately, the machine gets stuck on producing Penfolds and soon the Albert Hall is filled to the brim with copies of the cowardly sidekick. Dangermouse manages to throw a wrench into the machine and solves the case in record time, mainly because the original Penfold is off to the Annual Conference of Cowards Anonymous.
