The live-action adaptation of the Hank Ketcham comic strip of the same name. Dennis Mitchell was a loveable young boy, dressed in overalls and carrying a slingshot in his pocket. Everywhere he went, Dennis' wide-eyed curiosity, well-meaning attempts to help out, and his simply being a normal, red-blooded American boy growing up always seemed to lead to trouble. Usually on the receiving end was Dennis' next-door neighbor, retired business machine salesman George Wilson. Dennis worshiped Mr. Wilson, but he usually displayed a less-than-cordial attitude around the young lad. Mr. Wilson's wife, Martha, adored Dennis and saw him as a surrogate grandson (since the Wilsons never had any children). Dennis' long-suffering parents were Henry (an engineer) and Alice (a stay-at-home mother). Episodes revolved around Dennis' adventures and the trouble that usually followed. Also involved in the fun were Dennis' friends Tommy, Margaret, and Seymour. During the final year of the show, Mr. Wilson's ... Written by

As explained by Gloria Henry, in an interview for the first season DVD set, only the series debut, Dennis the Menace: Dennis Goes to the Movies (1959), depicted Dennis Mitchell, as he intentionally got into mischief (by secretly sneaking out of the house at night and misleading the babysitter, wondering where he may be). For the rest of the series, any misadventures caused by Dennis were always the result of his earnestness, or despite Dennis' good intentions, but never misbehavior. See more »
The side of the Wilsons' house closest to the Mitchell residence has an architectural inconsistency between front and back views. When viewed from Elm Street, the Mitchells' driveway appears to directly border the outside wall of the Wilsons' living room. However, in all but season 2, there is a door in the living room that exits toward the Mitchell residence. Beyond that door is a fence, sometimes with a gate that exits into the corner of the Wilsons' front yard. Viewed from the front, that gate could not exist. It would come out into the corner of the Wilsons' yard where the front yard, living room and fence meet the edge of the Mitchells' driveway. See more »
It was a great TV show! I watch it every chance I get. When I first discovered the show about 12 years ago on Nickelodeon, I thought it was very funny and very unique, A bright boy with a lot of energy who is always wanting to help people out, especially his next door neighbor Mr. Wilson who Dennis drove crazy and quite often got him in trouble. I just could never figure out why his parents didn't punish Dennis more often for some of the trouble he got into. Never the
less, The TV show was funny up until the end of the 3rd season
when Joseph Kearns who played the 1st Mr. Wilson passed away. Joseph Kearns was the best, he played his role as Mr. Wilson
with a real inspiration. Gale Gordon, Who played Mr. Wilson towards the end of the 3rd season and all of the 4th season was good, but he just was not the character that Joseph Kearns was. Another thing you could tell is that Herbert Anderson (Henry Mitchell) got along with and worked better with Joseph Kearns then he did with Gale Gordon. I think it's quite obvious that Herbert Anderson liked working with Joseph Kearns a lot better then he did with Gale Gordon, it comes clear throughout the last season.
