Added DiffLines:

* InnocentCohabitation: Oddly enough, the Wilsons share this trope. Considering the time in which it was filmed, the standards were considerably different.

* GenreSavvy: George Wilson. In one episode Wilson and the Mitchells decide how to approach Dennis to solve that week's problem. After they reach a solution Alice asks Wilson what he's thinking about and George says he's just trying to figure out how this solution will eventually backfire.

** The two episodes filmed between Kern's last episode and Gordon's first were obviously rewritten with two [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute SSSs]]: Grocer Mr Quigley [[BaseballEpisode coaches Dennis's Little League Team]], and Uncle Ned - who previously was a health nut who drove George crazy with excersise and fitness - now is in such bad health that he suddenly gets exhaused as he prepares his flower garden for a neighborhood contest.

* BillingDisplacement: For the first three years, the credits featured Jay North by himself, and then one screen with three credits in the order of Herbert Anderson (Henry), Gloria Henry (Alice), and Joseph Kerns (Mr Wilson). When Gale Gordon joined the cast, he became the second person to be credited, followed by Anderson and Henry.

* NotAllowedToGrowUpNotAllowedToGrowUp: Dennis. Margaret, too - she was still pushing dolls around in a doll carriage and wanting Dennis to play "house" when her actress was twelve years old.

* PutOnABus: Mr. and Mrs. Wilson, after Joseph Kearns died suddenly in 1962, during the third season. As production of new episodes for the 1961-1962 season was still ongoing, the following changes took place over the next several months, continuing into the fall 1962 season:
** '''Initially''': Two scripts where Mr. Wilson was either non-essential to the story or did not appear were shot first, with his lines either being removed or rewritten for other characters.
** '''The last six (6) episodes of Season 3''': Gale Gordon is introduced as George's brother, John. George is away on business, settling an estate "out east." The bus at this point is warming up.
** '''Starting with Season 4''': George and Martha move from town, presumably "out east." (At this point, Sylvia Field, who played Mrs. Wilson, was let go.) With the bus now departed, there are only a few scattered "blink-and-you'll-miss-them" mentions of the Wilsons in the first few episodes of the new season, after which they [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome are never referred to again]].



* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Gale Gordon replaced Joseph Kerns as George Wilson's brother John for the final season after Kerns passed away. Oddly enough, Gordon resembles the newspaper image of George Wilson much more than Kerns did.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': An episode entitled "Two Bad Neighbors" parodied the show with former President UsefulNotes/GeorgeHWBush moving into the neighborhood, complete with Bart at one point greeting him with "Heyyyyyy Misssssssterrrrrrr Buuuuuuuuuussssssh!"
** In another episode Bart refers to himself as "This generation's Dennis The Menace".
** Comparing Bart to Dennis is something of a RunningGag on the show. Yet another episode has one of Lisa's friends remarking "Who does (Bart) think he is with that slingshot in his back pocket, Dennis The Menace?"
