What's the deal with Dennis the Menace?
« on: May 21, 2020, 05:06:19 PM »
"Both the US and the UK have a comic strip character named Dennis the Menace and they were both coincidentally created in March 1951 by cartoonists in their respective countries who had no knowledge of what the other was working on."

Am I the only one here who doesn't get the UK DTM?  I always felt the same way about Jimmy Saville, I just couldn't understand in a million years why this guy was even a thing.  The UK Dennis the Menace is the same, even creepier.  Who the hell thinks that is funny?

Never ever looked at/read the Dennis The Menace comic/cartoon in either country, although when I was a kid I did watch the 50's black & white TV show.  That kid was annoying.

The UK Dennis was like a little football hooligan, whereas the US one was just a mischievous boy

And here I was thinking that you were talking about our forum member Dennis the Menace (though he hasn't been on here in a wee while)
