Dennis the Menace (US) Dennis the Menace is an 80’s Children’s TV cartoon. The character was created by Hank Ketcham for a number of American Newspaper strips. He was inspired by the antics of his own 5 year old son. Early in his career, he was involved with animation for Universal Studios and Walt Disney (he even worked on Pinocchio). There have been numerous versions of Dennis the Menace over the years, from live action in the 1950's to animation in the 1980's and 1990's. So popular has Dennis become, that a number of live action movies were made, starring Walter Matthau as Mr Wilson.    At the same time Dennis the Menace was being created, another Dennis the Menace was created in the UK. Both of these comic strips/shows have nothing to do with each other, and in the UK the US show was renamed - 'Just Dennis'. It premiered in 1983 and the show consisted of 2 series of 78 episodes (234 stories). In 1992 a new TV Special was created - Dennis the Menace: Cruise Control. Then in 1993 the show was resurrected for a new series and it went under the banner of 'The Incredible Dennis the Menace'. It only lasted for 13 episodes. Story Dennis is a little boy who means well, but always seems to end up in troubled. He doesn't take life at a slow pace and instead he rushes around everywhere. He even has to have a new pair of sneakers (trainers to us in the UK) every 2 weeks and he needs new bike tyres every month! Living next door to Dennis is the long suffering Mr Wilson. All he wants is to take life at a slow pace and look after his lovely garden and do jobs around the house. But that doesn't happen with Dennis around. Poor Mr Wilson dreads it when Dennis turns up calling his name, as this normally spells trouble.   Dennis is kind at heart, but doesn't seem to listen to Mr Wilson's plea's to leave him alone. He tries to help out with his jobs, but only makes things worse, like the time Mr Wilson was trying to paint a room. Dennis wouldn't listen again and after he accidentally got Mr Wilson tied up in masking tape, he then proceeded to fill the vacuum cleaner with paint and use it to spray the room in lots of different colours! Dennis the Menace (US) Characters Dennis Mitchell     (voiced by Brennan Thicke) The loveable brat Dennis, just loves to help people, but one thing he loves to do is press things he shouldn't which in turn causes chaos. Such as his trip to a car making factory. He pressed too many buttons, which caused the robots, that make the cars, to malfunction and destroy some of the cars being made. But of course Dennis is oblivious to the damage and destruction he causes, as he is a little naive. He will rush past people, not noticing that he has accidentally barged past someone, sending them flying! He thinks that Mr Wilson is his bestest friend in the whole world, but for all the trouble he causes Mr Wilson, he does have a nemesis - Margaret (see below). He even had his face put on Mount Rushmore, after he befriended a man who created the other faces on it! George Wilson     (voiced by Maurice LaMarche / Phil Hartman) Poor Mr Wilson, just wants an easy life. No matter what he does, he can't get away from Dennis. He has even told Dennis that he has so little hair because of him (Dennis doesn't get this one). He lives with his wife - Martha, next door to the Mitchell's. I would have thought he would have moved somewhere else by now to get away from Dennis, who even tries to speak to him in the middle of the night! One thing does relax him is fishing. It's relaxing and Dennis is usually not in sight, apart from when he thought he had caught a talking shark. He was ever so happy, he thought he would be famous, until Dennis popped out of its mouth and explained it was a radio controlled shark. He was so mad that he broke his fishing rod. The poor guy just needs to go to on an anger management course, because if he doesn't have help soon, he'll have a heart attack because of all the stress!   Martha Wilson     (voiced by Marilyn Lightstone) She is Married to Mr Wilson and she only sees the good side of Dennis. Which can infuriates poor George, as even his wife believes Dennis is good, when he knows he isn't! Margaret Wade     (voiced by Jeannie Elias) She likes playing with her dolly (Molly) and pushing her around in a pram. Once she found a genie's lamp and wished for Molly to come to life and to be a liberated woman like herself. But this backfired when Molly wanted to show Margaret what it was like being pushed around all the time, so she was dumped in the pram and Molly pushed her round at high speed (amazingly Margaret didn't like this?). She can be too overbearing and if Dennis does a good deed, like saving her from being run down by a shopping trolley, then her kindness can smother him. Like making sure he doesn't get 'out' in a Baseball game, by barging everyone out of the way. Which drives Dennis round the bend, but she really does fancy Dennis. One of her hobbies is playing the Piano and singing, but as you guessed, she isn't very good at the singing part. She even scared away an escaped bear with her singing (poor bear). Henry Mitchell     (voiced by Brian George / Maurice LaMarche) He is Dennis's dad and looks like a bit of a geek. He takes Dennis out to places and just can't keep control of him. I'm sure if Dennis was living near you, you'd be telling him what a bad parent he is. Alice Mitchell     (voiced by Marilyn Lightstone / Louise Vallance) She is Dennis's Mom and is the eye candy of the show and boy was she nice. She seems to be the stereotypical Mom, who stays at home and looks after the kids. Again, she can't keep control of Dennis and his actions and normally looks on helpless, as Dennis causes chaos. Ruff     (voiced by Maurice LaMarche / Phil Hartman) He is Dennis's dog and also causes Mr Wilson trouble, as he likes to dig up his prize winning flowers! He likes chasing squirrels. Joey     (voiced by Jeannie Elias) He is one of Dennis's friends and has a lisp. He is a bit of a wimp, but he can get Dennis into trouble too. Like the time Dennis's dad's car broke down in a Safari Park and he told them both to sit still while he got help. For once Dennis sat still, but it was Joey that was off getting to know the animals and Dennis had to keep saving him! PeeBee     (voiced by Jeannie Elias) He is a genius and loves studying things. But he was totally fooled when Dennis got control of a full sized radio controlled shark. He even talked to PeeBee, who thought he was the missing link and ran off to report it to the Oceanographic Society. He also claims to have a black belt in ichthyology!
