    Netflix announced reboots of the '80s cartoons on Feb. 25.

    The streaming service announced that it will soon be adding rebooted versions of Inspector Gadget and Danger Mouse, as well as three new series to its roster of children's shows (the live-action Some Assembly Required, about a 14-year-old owner of a toy company; CGI-animated Bottersnikes & Gumbles; and another CGI-animated series, SUPER 4, inspired by Playmobil). This follows the news that Disney XD will bring back DuckTales. Woo hoo!

    CBBC has released a trailer of the rebooted Danger Mouse, set to air on the British children's channel in September 2015.

    Gadget, Penny, and Brain look quite different from before, as you can see.

    And here's Danger Mouse and Penfold.

    The new Danger Mouse looks even more menacing. The reboot will also see Stephen Fry voicing Colonel K.

    Inspector Gadget will be the first show to drop, beginning March 2015. Danger Mouse fans will have to wait a little longer, as it's coming to Netflix in the spring of 2016.

    The 26-episode Inspector Gadget reboot premieres exclusively in the U.S. this March and will be available in Latin America, the U.K., Ireland, Benelux, France and the Nordics at a later date. Netflix will premiere Danger Mouse in North America, Latin America, the Nordics, Benelux, and Japan with all other Netflix territories launching at a later date.

    But you can listen to the original opening theme songs to hold you over until then.
