‘Animation Autumn’ salutes Mr Benn, Danger Mouse and Charlie and Lola

Posted at 7:00 am, September 26, 2011 in Arts & Entertainment

DangermouseTime Out’s weekly Hot List is now live and features plenty of must-see events. Our tip of the week: Celebrate 40 years of Mr Benn and 30 years of Danger Mouse with the ‘Animation Autumn’ exhibition opening at The Illustration Cupboard this Saturday (to October 15). The tribute to these veteran cartoon characters includes David McKee’s original cels for ‘Mr Benn’, limited edition silkscreens, signed books and Brian Cosgrove’s ‘Danger Mouse’ cels and working drawings. There’s also work by other contemporary illustrators and artists including Nick Park (‘Wallace and Gromit’) and Lauren Child (‘Charlie and Lola’). This one is definitely not just for kids.

For info, see this week’s Time Out London Hot List.
