Real life version of the cartoon
16 March 2006 | by orlando_bird_greenSee all my reviews

Sometihing tells me that this film was a live action version of the cartoon because DIC Enterprises(the company that produced the cartoon)produced this film also and the film title in the opening credits was identical to the one in the cartoon. Wouldn't you agree? I wonder if they have this film on DVD or if they even had it in VHS circulation. I used to watch syndicated reruns on the Disney channel 15 years ago and it was played on Encore WAM! 2 years ago. I t was pretty weird that they were considering turning Dennis' neighborhood into a dinosaur amusement park after he found that dinosaur bone. There were some parts where Dennis was a little rebellious to his parents.
