What I do these days...

Dennis and Gnasher back when they were known as Dennis the Menace and Gnasher. This was one of a series of drawings done for D C Thomson merchandising, coloured here by H.H. I've seen it on T shirts and mugs and postcards and posters. I think I saw it on some pyjamas.
I once read in an American Cartoonists magazine waxing lyrical about the American Dennis The Menace that "apparently England had it's own Dennis The Menace briefly in 1951". Nice to know they even noticed I suppose.
