Dennis meets Gnasher

Dennis had dogs before - see the first Dennis the Menace comic strip - but none of them were like Gnasher! With his shaggy hair and concrete-chomping teet, Gnasher was the perfect pooch pal for a rebel like Dennis.

They hit it off straight away, and the fun has never stopped!

The first Gnasher was drawn by Dennis the Menace artist,David Law, who dreamed up a wild creature who looked like Dennis's hair with ferocious teeth, eyes and legs.ย 

This comic appeared in Beano No. 1363, which came out on 31st August 1968.
