Dennis is celebrating his 65th birthday!

Dennis made his first appearance in the funny pages on March 12, 1951.  Later, Hank Ketcham changed Dennis’ official birthday to March 14 to coincide with his own, which means we get to celebrate twice!

Happy birthday to Dennis and Hank!

    I am wondering if there is a way to get a copy of a Cartoon that was published in 1993 In a January Sunday paper. My beloved father died that year and Denis came out with a cartoon on death.
