Dennis the Menace (also known as Dennis the Menace: Dinosaur Hunter) is a live-action telefilm directed by Doug Rogers and based on the Hank Ketcham comic strip. Victor DiMattia plays Dennis Mitchell and William Windom co-stars as Mr. Wilson. It first aired on television in 1987, but wasn't released to home video until 1993, to capitalize on the popularity of the 1993 film of the same name.[1]


Dennis and his friends find a dinosaur bone in his backyard, dubbed by him as the "Dennissaurus". The discovery makes life miserable for everyone, as scientists, reporters, and amusement park operators overrun the neighborhood.
