Airing on CBS from ’59-’63, Dennis the Menace is a TV series based on the popular and iconic Hank Ketcham comic strip of the same name. The show follows the lives of the Mitchell family -Henry, Alice, and their only child, Dennis. Dennis is an energetic, well meaning, but trouble-prone boy, and sometimes a mischievous child. He often tangles with peace-and-quiet-loving neighbor, George Wilson. Available for the first time on any home entertainment format, Season Three brings you all 38 original uncut episodes in a 5-disc set. Stars: Jay North, Herbert Anderson, and Gloria Henry.
I have been hooked on the predictable and affable Dennis since picking up and rediscovering the series with Season 1 and yes I will reiterate (like I said about season 1 and 2), this is pure comfort TV. And they give you a lot of comfort for you money. Season 3 includes a whopping 38 original episodes.
I am a classic TV nut most of the time and Dennis the Menace has been a very welcome addition to my stable of comfort shows. If you have not seen the show and appreciate TV of that era, give it a shot. If you did not enjoy the show when you were younger, take a look at it with new eyes. I think you will find that the show has merits you may have missed out on when you were younger.
