About this deal

Dennis the Menace (known as Dennis in Europe), a video game tie-in to the 1993 feature film, was released that same year by Ocean Software for the Super NES, Amiga and Game Boy. On September 11, 1987, a Dennis the Menace live-action television film was broadcast; it was later released on video under the title Dennis the Menace: Dinosaur Hunter. Another running gag is Dennis dreaming that he meets Santa Claus on Christmas Eve and causing chaos for everyone else. Many years earlier, he hand-picked two artists, Marcus Hamilton and Ronald Ferdinand (who produce the daily panel and Sunday page, respectively), as his assistants as he became increasingly involved in a fine arts career. I sent Hank some pencil sketches of the various characters, and after a few months of correspondence, I was brought on board to work on the Dennis the Menace comic books for Marvel.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the panel, Abbeville Press published The Merchant of Dennis (1990), Ketcham's autobiography, and a companion piece, Dennis the Menace: His First Forty Years (1991), a collection of more than 800 panels plus a section of color Sunday pages. A daily animated syndicated series was produced by DIC Entertainment in 1986, featuring Brennan Thicke as the voice of Dennis, and Phil Hartman as George Wilson and Henry Mitchell.

An animated film, Dennis the Menace in Cruise Control, premiered as part of Nickelodeon's Sunday Movie Toons block in 2002 and later released to DVD. Dennis' civic-mindedness has made him a popular spokescharacter for many worthy causes, including the Boy Scouts of America, Unicef and the International Red Cross.

He has great admiration for the fact that Gina never comes unglued in the presence of spiders, bugs or lizards, prompting Dennis to wonder, "You're lots of fun! A two-hour, prime-time, live-action Dennis the Menace special broadcast aired in 1987 in 114 markets nationwide. AV Club reviewer Noel Murray wrote: "Ketcham also experimented with his line a little early on, tightening and thickening without losing the looseness and spontaneity that remains the strip's best aspect even now. Dennis the Menace was adapted into an animated special, Dennis the Menace in Mayday for Mother which aired in 1981 and was produced by DePatie–Freeling Enterprises and Mirisch Films.
