    "You're an angel, Angelmouse!"                  
   Angelmouse is an angelic little mouse, with wings and a halo. He's been despatched
   to Earth to help those in need and to carry out good deeds in order to become a
   fully-fledged angel. Only, poor Angelmouse isn't very good at his job, and things
   regularly go wrong for him. Whenever a good deed backfires, Angelmouse's halo
   dims or vanishes altogether and our poor hero is left tearful and frustrated. But the
   twists and turns of each tale soon set him back to rights and his friends are
   associates are invariably left with a broad happy smile on their face...

   This is a super sweet production, with lots of bright colours and soft backgrounds.
   And it's fun. David Jason does a splendid job with the voices, and he gives our star
   character a suitably squeaky little voice. Angelmouse refers to his halo as a
   "thingamajig" and he regularly panics and splutters whenever it starts to wobble
    or disappear. That's when his pal Quilly usually steps in. Quilly is, to all
    intents and purposes, Angelmouse's conscience. His other friends include
    Oswald the rollerskating aeronautical duck, Hutchkin the laid-back rabbit,
    Spencer the car-loving bear, Little Petal the ragdoll shopkeeper, and Elliemum 
    and Baby Ellie.

    Angelmouse and friends were created by Rodney Peppe, who also brought us
    the fabulous Huxley Pig. This was the first series commission for Silver Fox Films.     Silver Fox was set up by producer Graham Ralph, who was formerly the "Ralph"
    half of Hibbert Ralph, who showed us Spider and more...
