Dennis The Menace

The TV series “Dennis the Menace,” which ran from 1959 to 1963, was set in a fictional neighborhood located at the Warner Bros. Ranch in Burbank, California. The Warner Ranch lot is separate from the main Warner backlot and unfortunately is not open to public tours at this time. Plans have been announced for Warner to sell the ranch, so its future is unknown at this time, but for now the structures still stand.

The Mitchell house is the original home exterior featured on the show and still remains today, although it has had some remodeling. It is one of the few original sets on the ranch, having survived previous fires on the grounds.

LOCATION: 411 N Hollywood Way, Burbank, CA 91505

The Wilson house was located next door, but the original set was lost in a fire in 1970. It was eventually rebuilt and this is how the facade currently appears.

The Elkins house was likewise burned in the 1970 fire and rebuilt. Here is how it appears now. The same facade was used in the 1970s TV series “The Partridge Family” and the film “The Monster Squad.”
