Whether crooked cop or private eye, nobody sticks it to the man like '''Dangeresque'''.  This cool dude plays both sides of the law, gets all the ladies, and doesn't pull no punches. Dangeresque is [[Strong Bad]]'s Shaft-esque film personae.

Strong Bad was asked if he did all his own stunts in the email "[[stunt double]]." He says he does, and shows his new film: "Dangeresque II: This Time, It's Not Dangeresque 1." as proof.

'''''Dangeresque''''' is a pseudo-trilogy of amateur movies made by Strong Bad. It originates in the email [[stunt double]], where Strong Bad was asked if he did all his own stunts. He says he does, and shows his new film ''Dangeresque II: This Time, It's Not Dangeresque 1'' as proof.

==Dangeresque: The Movie==

The Dangeresque films are shot with [[The Cheat]]'s video [[camera]], then very sloppily edited together. Strong Bad plays [[Dangeresque (character)|Dangeresque]], a wisecracking action hero who fights both "the law" and "the crime" with the help of Renaldo, played by Coach Z. The other main characters play small parts in the films, and Strong Sad is not-so-subtly edited in as a stunt double for any character that might get hit in the head or take a painful fall, despite Strong Bad's claims that he does all the stunts himself.  Dangeresque's method of crime fighting is patent nonsense, but the timely delivery of catch phrases like "Looks like I'm gonna have to jump!" always makes the [[Strong Bad's Ladies|ladies]] smile.

In the prequel, Dr. Experimento gets Dangeresque kicked out of the space program. In the first movie, the plot revolves around Dangeresque meeting Dangeresque Too, who helps him get a serum of some sort to Cutesy Buttons to keep her from getting kidnapped, while battling the evil Perducci. In the second film, Dangeresque battles for an important tape and comes upon Baron Darin Diamonocle played by Bubs, who must be working with the character played by Strong Mad in Dangeresque II in keeping the tape from Dangeresque. In the third movie, Renaldo is about to retire when the case to get the formula to restore Cutesy Buttons's rainforest evolves into a large adventure climaxing into a confrontation with Uzi Bazooka and Craig. Of course, Strong Sad is called upon in all movies to do the painful stunts.

This article is about the film series. For other uses of the word "Dangeresque", see Dangeresque.
Dangeresque and Renaldo

Dangeresque is a pseudo-trilogy of amateur movies made by Strong Bad. It originates in the email stunt double, where Strong Bad was asked if he did all his own stunts. He says he does, and shows his new film Dangeresque II: This Time, It's Not Dangeresque 1 as proof.

The Dangeresque films are shot with The Cheat's video camera, then very sloppily edited together. Strong Bad plays Dangeresque, a wisecracking action hero who fights both "the law" and "the crime" with the help of Renaldo, played by Coach Z. The other main characters play small parts in the films, and Strong Sad is not-so-subtly edited in as a stunt double for any character that might get hit in the head or take a painful fall, despite Strong Bad's claims that he does all the stunts himself. Dangeresque's method of crime fighting is patent nonsense, but the timely delivery of catch phrases like "Looks like I'm gonna have to jump!" always makes the ladies smile.

[edit] Music

Since nothing says vintage cop shows like a funky groove, Dangeresque employs a Shaft-style anthem in "The Theme from Dangeresque II." The end credits of Dangeresque 1 and "Dangeresque 3" have a softer, 1980s buddy movie feel with "Today is Alright 4 2Nite." The underlying score of the films themselves are short, sparse, rather campy interludes between scenes sung by Strong Bad.
