All-New Dennis the Menace is an animated series based on the comic strip by Hank Ketcham. It ran in 1993 on CBS, while the 1986 series was still airing in syndication, capitalizing on the success of a live-action film adaptation of the comic strip that was released the same year. The series was produced by DIC Entertainment and Reteitalia, S.p.A., in association with Spanish network Telecinco. Much like the latter, All-New was sponsored by General Mills.

Dennis the Menace: Cruise Control

In 2002, DIC produced a Television Film as part of their DIC Movie Toons series, titled Dennis the Menace: Cruise Control. It originally premiered on television on Nickelodeon on October 27, 2002, and was released on VHS and DVD shortly afterward by MGM Home Entertainment, and later aired internationally on Disney Channel and Toon Disney. Instead of duplicating the look and feel of this show, it harked back instead to the character designs from the better-known 1986 Dennis the Menace series, also produced by DIC. It marks the first Dennis the Menace project released after Hank Ketcham's death on June 1, 2001.
