All-New Dennis the Menace is an American animated series produced by DIC Animation City, based on the comic strip by Hank Ketcham. It ran from 1993 on CBS, while the 1986 series was still airing on syndication.[5] Much like the latter, All-New was sponsored by General Mills. The same year, a live-action film adaptation of the comic strip was released.

Additional voices[edit]


The series' opening theme was adapted from the overture to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's opera The Marriage of Figaro.[6][7] The series' score also consists of classical music adaptations from overtures,[4] such as the one from Gioachino Rossini's The Barber of Seville.


Videotapes with episodes of the show have been released, such as ones by Village Roadshow Entertainment in Australia in the mid-90s.[8][9][3] Magna Pacific released all 13 episodes (except "Pig Out" and "Battle of the Bonding") on three separate region 4 DVD volumes in Australia in 2004,[2][10] but they're deleted and out of print now. In 2006 in the UK, Boulevard Entertainment issues several DVDs each containing 2 episode.

Dennis the Menace: Cruise Control[edit]

In 2002, DIC produced a Television Film as part of their DIC Movie Toons series, titled Dennis the Menace: Cruise Control. It originally premiered on television on Nickelodeon on October 27, 2002,[11][12] and was released on VHS and DVD shortly afterward by MGM Home Entertainment, and later aired internationally on Disney Channel and Toon Disney. Instead of duplicating the look and feel of this show, it harked back instead to the character designs from the better-known 1986 Dennis the Menace series, also produced by DIC. It marks the first Dennis the Menace project released after Hank Ketcham's death on June 1, 2001.
