Dangermouse

DangerMouse is a British animated television series which was produced by Cosgrove Hall Films.

It features the eponymous DangerMouse, a British mouse that works as a secret agent. The show is a loose parody of British spy fiction, particularly James Bond and the Danger Man series starring Patrick McGoohan.

The eponymous hero wears a rakish eyepatch and his chest is prominently emblazoned with the initials “DM”. This causes problems for those translating the series into other languages, where a literal translation of the words “Danger” and “Mouse” do not share those initials; the Scots Gaelic version, for example, calls the series (and the lead) “Donnie Murdo” (two given names unconnected either with mice or danger).

The Slovenian translation omitted the DM initials entirely, however, dubbing Danger Mouse Hrabri mišek (“brave mouse”)…more here
