Beyond Grizzly Tales 5

Honeycomb Animation's first series for ITV was Tube Mice in 1988.

Originally starring the voices of George Cole and Dennis Waterman, the series was later revoiced for transmission on Nickelodeon, as George and Dennis were working under the old ITV contracts which only allowed for two UK transmissions, though it was the original version which was released on video by Virgin Vision.

But did Dennis insist on singing the theme tune?  No, sorry Little Britain, not on this show, in fact co creator and director Simon Bor provided his voice for the rapping theme.
