Dangermouse - He's the Greatest!

The world's greatest Mouse detective and secret agent Dangermouse with his trusty sidekick Penfold achieved cult status and in 1983 viewing figures topped 21 million and the show came third in the Channel 4 poll-slash-TV show "100 Greatest Kids' TV Shows", beaten only by The Muppet Show and The Simpsons.

This very British animated television series which was produced by Cosgrove Hall and generally parodies British spy fiction, particularly James Bond and the Danger Man as well as entertaining kids of all ages with quick fire and sarcastic humour.

Jamie and the Magic Torch

Created by the same animation team of Brian Cosgrove and Mark Hall that brought the world 'Chorlton and the Wheelies', 'Dangermouse' and 'Count Duckula', 'Jamie and the Magic Torch' is a childrens cartoon based around a young boy, Jamie, his English sheepdog Wordsworth and his magic torch (funny that).

It debuted on ITV from 1976 to 1979, although I remember watching it in the 1980s, so it must have been rerun. The series was written and narrated by Brian Trueman, who later wrote 'Dangermouse' and 'Count Duckula'.
