File:Geronimo Stilton TV show cast 3227.png

Geronimo Stilton is the protagonist of a series of books, originally written and published in Italy. The books follow the various adventures that Geronimo gets roped into (being a mild-mannered mouse, he'd much rather stay home, thank you very much). He's often accompanied by his sister Thea, his Cousin Trap, and his favorite nephew Benjamin.

Each book is written by Geronimo in the first person, since he is a famouse author and publisher/editor-in-chief of The Rodent's Gazette, the most popular newspaper in New Mouse City.

Along with Geronimo, his sister Thea has her own stories involving her and a group of journalism students known as the "Thea Sisters". It's also announced that Creepella will also have her own stories coming out in late 2011.

This book series has been adapted as a 26-episode animated series as a joint venture by Italy, Canada and other countries; first aired in Italy (Italian) and Canada (English), and shown in several other countries shortly after. As of writing, 2nd season is in the works. Despite being based on the books, the show is about 98% original material.

Geronimo's literary adventures include examples of:

 Shif T. Paws: Watch your whiskers, here comes Shif T. Paws!

  • Cats Are Mean: The titular pirates in "Attack of the Bandit Cats".
  • Chaste Toons: Benjamin is Geronimo's favorite (and only) nephew. A rather extreme example, as Geronimo's only mentioned sister, Thea, is not Benjamin's mother, nor is any mention of her made in any of the books (yet). All this despite there being Loads and Loads of Stiltons.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: The Cacklefurs.
  • Death Trap: In "Watch Your Whiskers, Stilton!", the game show "The Mousetrap" centers around a gigantic bladed mousetrap that the contestant is chained to.
  • Disguised in Drag: In "Paws Off, Cheddarface!" Trap is made up to look like Sally Ratmousen in order to counter her Identical Stranger Gambit.
  • The Door Slams You: Happens to Geronimo a number of times in "Watch Your Whiskers, Stilton!"
  • Even Evil Has Standards: In "The Giant Diamond Robbery," Sally Ratmousen's profile states, "She's known for breaking the rules, except on the golf course, because that's unethical!"
  • Excited Volume Title: "I'm Too Fond of my Fur!" "Paws Off, Cheddarface!" "It's Halloween, You 'Fraidy Mouse!" " Merry Christmas, Geronimo!" "Watch Your Whiskers, Stilton!" "Surf's Up, Geronimo!"
  • Funny Animal
  • Hold Your Hippogriffs: The books are stuffed with mouse-ified phrases.
  • Identical Stranger: "Paws Off, Cheddarface!"
  • Literary Agent Hypothesis: All the books are "written by" Geronimo Himself.
  • Hurricane of Puns: Mouse puns, mostly.
  • Not Allowed to Grow Up: You'd think that after all the adventures the gang goes through, they're portrayed as being older.
  • The One Who Wears Shoes: Pinky Pick.
  • Plot-Driven Breakdown: In "A Very Merry Christmas," Geronimo accidentally picks up someone else's bag instead of his own. The other person calls her own cellphone and starts to make arrangements for her and Geronimo to meet up and exchange bags, but her phone dies just before she says where to find her.
  • Scenery Porn: Later books have BEAUTIFUL backgrounds. Most notably is the Fantasy Kingdom books (The third one has a beautiful depiction of New Mouse City in spring)
  • Shaggy Dog Story: "Geronimo Stilton, Secret Agent"
  • Shout-Out: In "The Secret of Cacklefur Castle," the Cacklefurs have a pet cockroach named Kafka.
  • Species Surname: Not as many as you'd think.
