Episode 85 – Dennis the Menace
This week’s request comes to us via Facebook from Jason Cromer- Thanks Jason! Dennis the Menace is based on a comic strip from 1951 that has been made into several TV series, a movie, a breakfast cereal, and even a Dairy Queen mascot. But neither of us has seen this show in literal decades so we have no idea if it’s actually still good. There’s also been no use of this property for decades either which really seems like a shame. Come listen as we discuss this and more!
The young blond boy with a cowlick and a mischievous personality, Dennis the Menace, gets into numerous scrapes and adventures with his dog Ruff and his friends Joey, Margaret, Gina, Tommy, PeeBee and Jay.
Dennis is an impulsive, angel-faced little devil who is always getting into scrapes which end up tormenting his hapless next-door neighbor, Mr. Wilson (though Dennis always means well). Dennis finds himself involved in all kinds of wild adventures (some of which are fantasy-based like the international espionage and trips into the past stories) but always manages to save the day.
