Dennis the Menace is the main character of Dennis the Menace and Gnasher, and the main star of The Beano. He lives in Beanotown and owns an Abyssinian Wire-Haired Tripe Hound named Gnasher.


He mainly has black spiky hair, wears a black-and-red-striped jumper, black shorts, red socks, and grey trainers.

For his appearance over the years, see Dennis the Menace Through the Years.


Dennis shoots peas again

Dennis uses his peashooter again, for the first time in 80 years.

Dennis is a trouble-making 10-year-old kid who loves making mischief and, as his name implies, is considered a menace by everyone. His weapons of choice used to be a catapult, a peashooter or a water pistol, but now, he uses more modern methods. His catchphrase is "Blam", which, in his own words, means "awesome".[1]

However, despite his naughty nature, Dennis has shown to be heroic sometimes: in the recent comics, he even saved Beanotown from boredom after Walter's Dad became the mayor.[2]
