Episode Guide

 

Dennis

Show Information:

Based on the comic strip created by Hank Ketcham, the young blonde boy with a cowlick and a mischievous personality became an instant hit in comic books, a live-action sitcom during the 60s, and finally, this popular animated series. Dennis is an impulsive, angel-faced little devil who is always getting into scrapes and exasperating his next-door neighbor, the curmudgeonly Mr. Wilson (voiced here by Phil Hartman, the much-loved comedian of Saturday Night Live and NewsRadio fame). The animated Dennis, voiced by Brennan Thicke (son of TV star Alan Thicke) and accompanied by friends Margaret, Tommy and Joey and dog Ruff, finds himself involved in all kinds of wild adventures, including international espionage and trips into the past - but always manages to save the day. A premier syndicated attraction and an American classic.
