You know I was watching this episode the other night...its one of my favorites (the fact that it was one of the few episodes I had on VHS dosent hurt) and it strikes me how good the animation is in this episode.
Wow, two in the box, today! This was a greater surprise because for some reason I thought you posted a finished version of this already but in a lighter shade some time ago. I love the darker color palette on this take, the look of his horns, shell, teeth, and the glowing red eyes like in the episode.
Yeah, I remember Dennis the Menace, that was such a faithful adaptation of the Ketchem's strip. To DIC's credit they did not try to hip up or make Dennis current with the times rather they kept the characters iconic.
