One of my faves.
8 November 2002 | by dootussSee all my reviews

"Dennis the Menace" was, and is still one of my favorite cartoons that I watched growing up. I loved it how Dennis would always torment Mr. Wilson. Of course, Dennis had NO idea that he was giving Mr. Wilson such a hard time. The episodes where Dennis would always end up going on an adventure with one or a few of his friends were the coolest!!! This show also had some great vocal talent such as the late great Phil Hartman (I miss him!!!), and Maurice LaMarche to name a few.

If you ever see this show in the near future, and have never watched it, then check it out, you WON'T be disappointed. 10/10
