The de-menacing of Dennis continues. Read about it on Down The Tubes.
However, it seems reports of Dennis going soft have been somewhat exaggerated, as reported by Lew Stringer.
It's obvious to me though that Dennis has been cleaned up over the last 20 years. Personally, I miss the nastiness of some of the older Beano strips and other British kids' comics. But I wonder: would anyone let their children read that stuff these days?
See below for a vintage Davey Law Dennis strip.
