Dennis the Menace is grown up, and kicking butt, in violent fan short

Readers of Hank Ketcham's Dennis the Menace have no doubt long suspected that, lurking just beneath the signature cowlick and impish grin simmered a barely contained rage. Good ol' Mr. Wilson certainly suspected it; no doubt even dim-witted Joey knew the score. And in "Menace," it's finally unleashed.

In the fan new fan short, written and directed by Dennis Doucette (who also stars), an adult Dennis Mitchell -- still clad in red overalls and wielding a slingshot -- channels that anger through his life as a vigilante. It's probably more productive than that lemonade stand.

Be sure to stick around after the credits, where we see Dennis hasn't lost touch with the old neighborhood.
