AN episode of children’s cartoon favourite Danger Mouse has been slapped with a racism warning.
The adventures of the crime-fighting rodent are on streaming service BritBox — and it has issued the alert for a 1984 episode set in Hong Kong.
It features enemy rats in Chinese coolie hats with slanted eyes.
Their accents, where they pronounce words such as “friend” as “flend”, are seen as a source of fun.
Viewers are told: “Contains some cultural stereotyping that may offend.”
Danger Mouse, voiced by David Jason, ran on ITV from 1981 until 1992.
BritBox said all programmes with “potentially sensitive language or attitudes of their era” carried warnings.
