Plot SummaryBased on Hank Ketcham's comic strip and the TV series. Dennis Mitchell is no menace to society. He's just a young boy whose mischievous ways constantly land him in hot water. Specifically, Dennis loves to play practical jokes on the crusty, ever-fuming Mr. Wilson (such as adding bathroom cleanser to the curmudgeon's mouthwash). Trouble arrives, however, in the form of a shady stranger named Switchblade Sam, who kidnaps the towheaded lad. But when Dennis's prankish nature is unleashed upon Switchblade Sam, the wily boy isn't a captive for very long...
