Dennis Mitchell (Jay North) is back for one final season of calamity, aggravation and hilarity.
With the permanent departure of the grumpy curmudgeon Mr. George Wilson, its up to his brother John Wilson (Gale Gordon) to step in as Dennis creative muse. Together they team up for a whirlwind round of escapades and mishaps including a trip to the zoo, a visit to the local hermit, a search for the neighborhood monster and a sleepover at the Wilsons house! Along for the ride are Dennis folks Henry (Herbert Anderson) and Alice (Gloria Henry), his best buddy Tommy (Billy Booth) and his no-nonsense adversary Margaret (Jeannie Russell).
Based on the weekly comic strip by Hank Ketcham, this staple of classic television ran on CBS from 1959 to 1963. Here for the first time on DVD are all 38 uncut episodes from the complete final season!

If you bought the first 3 seasons, you know what you're getting with the packaging and everything as it has remained the same, the clear plastic case that holds 5 DVD's inside with the little episode booklet, very nicely presented, and very durable.
Now this season has 'John Wilson' portrayed by the great character actor (Gale Gordon) later of 'The Lucy Show' fame, because the original 'George Wilson' portrayed by the late AND great (Joseph Kearns) passed away during the end of the 3rd season, but I do agree with some of the other reviewers, it would have been nice for them to kind of give some closure on the character of Mr. Wilson, but Gale Gordon steps in and does a great job at portraying George Wilson's brother, quite big shoes to fill in my opinion.
Now I just got this today off Amazon, so I haven't watched the episodes yet, but I remember some of them from when I was a kid back in the late 1980's and early 1990's when Nickelodeon had them on reruns, of course it has been years since I've seen them, but I remember certain things about them, and there are some gems here.
One final note, in this season, Jay North is no longer wearing the suspenders and the slingshot, which is something Dennis Mitchell was always known for, but I guess it was time to change, no big deal there, but people will always remember him wearing said items.
So let's all give a shout out to 'Shout Factory!' no pun intended, for putting this great series to DVD in a very short length of time and very reasonable prices, this show brings back great memories to a lot of people, myself included, so go buy it!
