List Rules Vote up your favorite Dennis the Menace movies and TV shows.

The first Dennis the Menace movie came out in 1987 and it wasn’t until 1993 that a Dennis the Menace movie made it to theaters. There were also both live-action and animated TV shows and they are all classics or at least memorable. That being said, one of them has to be the best of the Dennis the Menace franchise. Will it be the first Dennis the Menace film or maybe one of the follow-ups such as A Dennis the Menace Christmas starring Robert Wagner that will make it to the top of the list? Or could one of the animated series be the funniest of them all?
