* FranchiseZombie: Since Hank Ketcham handed the strip off to his successors, it has lost most of what made it unique, and has pretty much degenerated into Dennis making inoffensively cute remarks, much like ''ComicStrip/TheFamilyCircus.'' The [[Webcomic/{{Wondermark}} Comic Strip Doctor]] did [[http://wondermark.com/the-comic-strip-doctor-dennis-the-menace/ a whole column]] on the strip's descent into lameness.

* DependingOnTheArtist: The current two artists have very different styles. Marcus Hamilton, the Monday--Saturday artist, draws the strip in a very close approximation of Hank Ketcham's style in his later years, while Sunday artist Ron Ferdinand has a far looser and sketchier style than Ketcham or Hamilton.

* WereStillRelevantDammit: In the early '70s, Ketcham attempted to make the strip more up-to-date by introducing a pair of "ethnic" characters. One, the tomboyish Italian-American girl Gina, was well received. The other, an African-American kid named Jackson, was... well, [[http://www.snopes.com/racial/arts/dennisthemenace.asp not so much]].[[note]]Jackson should not be confused with Jay, a character created by DIC for [[WesternAnimation/DennisTheMenace its animated version.[[/note]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* GrannyClassic: Mrs. Wilson often acts this way, especially to Dennis. WordOfGod states that she deeply regrets that she and Mr. Wilson never had kids of their own, causing her to treat Dennis like he was her own grandson.
