Dennis Menace
Dennis the Menace has blond hair?

When I used to read the Beano as a kid Dennis had black spikey hair. So why in the films does he have blond hair?

The film is based on the US comic strip.

Dennis the Menace (known as Dennis the Menace and Gnasher since 1970) is a long-running comic strip featured in The Beano children’s comic, published by D. C. Thomson & Co. Ltd, Dundee, Scotland, in the United Kingdom.

The strip first appeared in issue 452, released on 15 March 1951 (cover dated for the off-sale date of 17 March), and is the longest running strip in the comic. From issue 1678 onwards (dated 14 September 1974) Dennis the Menace replaced Biffo the Bear on the front cover, and has been there ever since.

Three days earlier, on 12 March 1951, another Dennis the Menace debuted in the United States. The two strips should not be confused — as a result of this the US series has been retitled Dennis for UK consumption, while the British character’s appearances are often titled “Dennis and Gnasher” outside the UK.

The Hank Ketcham comic strip about a mischievous boy named Dennis Mitchell (Mason Gamble) becomes a film directed by Nick Castle (The Last Starfighter) based on a weak script by John Hughes (The Breakfast Club).
