YMMV: Dennis the Menace (US)
- Critical Research Failure: The episode "Trembly Assembly" plays this trope Up to Eleven. In fact, it gets it completely wrong at times.
- Ethnic Scrappy: African-American kid Jackson.
- Fandom Rivalry/Internet Backdraft: Debates between this Dennis the Menace and the U.K. strip of the same name can get incredibly heated.
- Seinfeld Is Unfunny: Part of the inspiration for Bart Simpson came from Matt Groening's disappointment that Dennis wasn't as menacing as his title would imply, and wanted to make a character that was actually a menace.
- Tear Jerker: Dennis crying after George becomes very angry at him.
