Thursday's Dennis the Menace
I was watching television on a Saturday morning recently and I found that Saturday morning cartoons aren't the same as when I grew up. They pretty much don't exist anymore - I saw a lot of other stuff on there, but not many cartoons. So is DtM actually less than two decades behind the times?
That's one level of weirdness.
The other one is the fact that one of those cartoons I grew up watching was "Dennis the Menace" (Dennis, Dennis, Dennis the Menace...). So when Dennis is telling Joey about his dad, who I guess is only a few years older than I, growing up watching Saturday morning cartoons he's actually talking about his dad watching his unborn son on the TV as a child.
