Product Description

The Complete First Season 1959 1960, All 32 Original Episodes


The comic misadventures of television’s most well-meaning but misguided boy are back! The lovable Dennis Mitchell (Jay North) left a trail of chaos throughout his suburban neighborhood. Yet along with his friends and classmates Tommy (Billy Booth) and Margaret (Jeannie Russell), Dennis managed to pry his way into the hearts of millions from week to week. Based on the long-running comic strip by Hank Ketcham, this beloved CBS television series (1959 1963) stayed true to form, as Dennis’s youthful curiosity always managed to get him into heaps of trouble . . . especially with his crotchety old neighbor Mr. Wilson (Joseph Kearns). Herbert Anderson and Gloria Henry starred as Dennis’s parents who were always on hand with love and guidance but not necessarily the required supervision.

Here for the first time on DVD are all 32 uncut episodes from the first season of Dennis The Menace!

Amazon.com

The first season of Dennis the Menace, a black-and-white sitcom based on the comic strip by Hank Ketcham that ran on CBS from 1959 to 1960, featured an energetic, curious young boy who was simply a magnet for mischief. Dennis (Jay North) is essentially a good boy who always wants to be right in the middle of whatever's going on in his suburban neighborhood and has an insatiable desire to "help" his friends and neighbors. His loving, but exasperated parents (Gloria Henry and Herbert Anderson) never seem quite able to anticipate what kind of trouble Dennis might get into next, but one can bet that it will probably have something to do with their grouchy neighbor Mr. Wilson (Joseph Kearns). Whether it's planting flowers, pouring a concrete walk, camping out in the backyard, finding a buyer for a neighbor's house, or talking on the neighborhood (telephone) party line, Dennis always seems to inadvertently make a mess of things. In some ways, this sitcom is surprisingly timeless in its portrayal of a young boy and his abundant energy and overwhelming sense of curiosity, but details like the prevalence of cap guns and shooting games in Dennis's play, firecrackers tossed casually into the garbage and incinerator, and the stereotypical portrayal of a "woman's role" are startling reminders of how much has changed since the late 1950s and early 1960s. Bonus features include a 2010 interview with Henry and Jeannie Russell (Margaret) about everything from casting to the weekly shooting schedule and various troubles on the set; a 2007 audio-only radio interview with Henry and Russell; the 1960 Donna Reed Show episode "Donna Decorates," which guest-starred Dennis the Menace; and the original show promo, credits, and commercials. --Tami Horiuchi

I live in the UK and can remember watching this series when I was no older than Dennis was in the series (around 10 or 11). I have purchased dozens of other television shows from the late 1950s and early 1960s and have really enjoyed watching them all again. However Dennis the Menace is the one television series from this era that really does epitomize my childhood and brings back such wonderful memories for me. I never imagined that I would be watching that lovable rascal Dennis on my television screen again. In conclusion I would just like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to all those people concerned in making this great tv series available to all fans of Dennis the Menace. Just as a postscript: When Dennis the Menace was shown in Britain it was called "Just Dennis."
At the time there was a funny papers character called Dennis the Menace and so the the tv series Dennis the Menace received the alternate title so as not to confuse it with the funny papers character.

My family loved watching this show. We can't understand why Dennis the Menace, Leave it to Beaver, Jeff's Collie/Lassie & My Three Sons are not relased in full, uncut versions. I enjoy purchasing TV sitcoms for Birthday and Christmas gifts, & would like some of the older, classic shows to choose from. I have been burned by bootleggers so please commercially release these and other old time television shows. The public will buy them. We miss our TV friends and want them to come to DVD so we may watch them whenever we have a few moments off of work and daily presures.

My copy just arrived today. I admit the picture quality was good, however, the first episode's opening sequence had a lot of scratches from the film and it makes you wonder how there wasn't a cleaner copy available for remastering. The extras are WONDERFUL with Jeannie Russell and Gloria Henry. They both look great and their stories are great! The radio interview was good, you just wonder why the silenced episodes which were running during the audio of the radio interview, kept going after the radio interview had ended. I am very pleased with the first season set and hope sales are good enough to have Shout Factory release the other seasons.

I watched this devotedly when Nickelodeon was re-running the show many years ago. Dennis The Menace is one of those cult classics that belongs in any fan's DVD library. Great escapism of a gentler time period.

Thank you Shout Factory for the season one release of "Dennis the Menace".I just received my set,and I am totally blown away by the quality.The packaging of the set,audio/video quality of the dvd transfers and effort that went into producing this set is nothing short of amazing.I own many other "Shout Factory" dvd sets,and the quality of this set remains top notch.It is amazing to step back into the year 1959 and enjoy this great series.It really is an escape to view these episodes,and for a short time forget all of today's problems.I had actually never seen the series,although after all the 5 star reviews,I decided to add this to my library.I could'nt be happier that I did.I look forward to season two.For anybody who is considering purchasing this set,buy it now !!!.You won't regret it.

I grew up watching these shows as reruns on Nickelodeon. I absolutely loved them. Now that they have finally been made available on DVD I'm recalling all of my wonderful childhood memories. This series was not only funny but represents a simpler, innocent time when kids were respectful and safe. Sadly, it is now a bygone era. Today's children would refuse to watch these shows and would most likely call them boring. That may explain why they are not shown as reruns anymore. I, and others my age and up, are delighted to have them on DVD and I can't wait for the release of season 2.

In my opinion this is what TV was suppose to be...FUN!! What a wonderful show this is. The transfers are beautiful as is the audio. Even the packaging is great. I have to confess that I love the very first show the best. Dennis was so cute and so full of energy! Loved his "baby talk" as well. The whole show is just a nice release from the stress of todays world. Leave it to Shout to bring back good memories for the baby boomers. If you love classic TV than by all means buy this set as I'm sure you will love every moment! Thank you Shout!!

So happy Dennis the Menace Season 1 has finally been released. We are so enjoying these old episodes and the interviews with cast members Margaret and Dennis' mother. Just charming stories and the transfers to DVD are wonderful, too. The price is excellent for this 32 episode set!
