I've been enjoying Gale Gordon on Dennis the Menace

Recommended Posts

 Been watching season 4 of Dennis the Menace and enjoying Gale Gordon as the new Mr Wilson (George's brother) Even though I like Joseph Kearns better as Mr Wison, Gale is great and the last season of Dennis pleasant, despite the fact that Jay is just a little old for the part of Dennis.

I enjoy Gale on Dennis the Menace too and I think even if I wasn't a huge Gale fan, I still would actually enjoy his Mr. Wilson more than Joseph Kearns. Even watching the show when I was a kid, there was something about Joseph Kearns' Wilson that made me edgy. LOL

When I was about 10 Yeats old I watch TLS in the afternoon. I also was a fasn until they moved it opposite Lucy. I would flip back and forth during commercials. It was really finny when I would encounter double Gale.

Gale was great on that show, it was nice seeing him yell at someone else for a change.  I too thought he was better than Kearns.  Never missed the show.

Now the part wasn't recast after Kearns died, right? Gale played the character's brother?

 

It's ironic that Gale succeeded Joseph Kearns on the show, as he also replaced him as Mr. Atterbury on My Favorite Husband.

That's right. Kearns' Wilson "moved" and Gale's Wilson was brought in to look after the house for a while, eventually joined by his wife (Sara Seeger) and eventually they formally bought the joint.

Oh those "shenanagans" on Blondie Street! So many comings and goings! ;)

I'm going to have start watching Our Miss Brooks to get more of my Gale Gordon fix.

 

Now there's a show that deserves an official DVD release. I'd love to see that someday.
