* IKnowYouKnowIKnow: Taken to extreme lengths in "The Statue of Liberty Caper" where almost half the episode consists of DM and Greenback trying to outguess each other.
--> '''DM''': You see, I guessed that you would guess I would guess what you had guessed and guessed that your guess would be the guess I guessed you guessed.\\
'''Greenback''': What?\\
'''DM''': I'm not saying it again. I can't!

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the 2015 series, DM is depicted as generally very competent when on his missions, but some flaws - namely his [[{{Pride}} ego]] and tendency to [[AttentionWhore showboat]] or otherwise [[TheComicallySerious not take things seriously]] [[AcquiredSituationalNarcissism when he thinks he's in control of the situation]] - have become more evident to balance things out. Likewise, Penfold is still a patented coward, but he has since become much more adept at coming up with the necessary ideas to make things right again.
** Over time, this has also been applied to [[GadgeteerGenius Professor Squawkencluck]] and [[DistaffCounterpart Jeopardy Mouse]], almost in response to early accusations of PositiveDiscrimination. Whilst still very temperamental and snarky, a more humorous and [[AdorkAble adorkable]] side to Squawkencluck has become more evident (Like doing a dance and singing ''"Go Squawky, go Squawky, get your groove on!"'' when eagerly revealing Big Head 2.0), whilst Jeopardy Mouse gets a few [[TheComicallySerious comically-serious]] moments along with a few demonstrating she's NotSoDifferent from her British counterpart.

* GenderFlip: Professor Squawkencluck is a woman in the new series (and an [[RaceLift actual chicken]] besides).

** The fog monster of old London Town in "The Four Tasks Of Danger Mouse" disguises himself as a bath house where DM is taking a shower. The fog monster dissipates leaving DM in front of us, bare-bottomed.

** In the 2015 series, Danger Mouse and Jeopardy Mouse are tied for world's greatest secret agent (although it might be El Hazard Mouse) and, despite her [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny susceptibility to bright lights]], Danger Moth is the second greatest.

* TheManBehindTheCurtain: The title world in "The Planet of the Cats" is ruled by Greenback's great-great-etc.-nephew (who happens to look and sound identical to his great-great-etc.-uncle, complete with a caterpillar called Nero), posing as feline leader Big Leo. DM discovers the true identity of "Big Leo" and uses this information to get out of being cornered by the cats so that he can rescue Penfold. The cats are not happy too find out they have been taking orders from a toad:

* MisterSandmanSequence: In "The Return of Danger K", the flashback to Danger K's heyday in TheEighties crams a bunch of period signifiers into its first few seconds, including a [[TheQuincyPunk punk]] hassling a yuppie in a dayglo jogging outfit carrying a huge mobile phone, and posters for "[[{{Music/Kiss}} Hug]]", "[[Music/AdamAnt Ant Adam]]", "[[{{Music/Wham}} WhamBam!!!]]", and "[[Music/TheKinks The Sniffs]]". It doesn't quite manage a genuine period soundtrack, though, having to settle for some generic eighties-sounding incidental music.

** In ''Pink Dawn'' of the revival series, after Professor Squawkencluck saves Dawn from eating a mini particle fusion bomb that ''looks'' like a gumball, it suddenly cuts to Penfold having an 'oh-crap' expression before spitting out said bomb that he thought was a gumball. He tosses it away afterward- where right on cue, [[MadeOfExplodium it explodes behind him]].

British animated series by Creator/CosgroveHall, running on Creator/{{ITV}} from 1981 to 1992, starring (now [[KnightFever Sir]]) Creator/DavidJason as the voice of Danger Mouse, a mouse who is the world's greatest secret agent. Accompanied by his somewhat more timid (and bumbling) hamster partner, Penfold (voiced by comedy veteran Creator/TerryScott), Danger Mouse saves the world each week from a variety of menaces ranging from fiends such as criminal mastermind and arch-enemy Baron Silas Greenback, as well as monsters and even their own narrator. Although an entertaining and original series in its own right, ''Danger Mouse'' actually began as a parody of ''Series/DangerMan'' (which is better known in the United States as ''Secret Agent'', and as the forerunner of ''Series/ThePrisoner'').
