Dennis & Gnasher Unleashed! becomes the top show on CBBC in its first week

Jellyfish Pictures developed Dennis and Gnasher: Unleashed! with the BBC and Beano Studios, originating the fresh 3D incarnation of the beloved characters and bringing it to life with stylish animation, snappy edits and impressive visuals that introduce a new generation to the mischief and fun of Dennis and Gnasher. The show has become the highest rated show on CBBC in its first week, and a news report about the ratings success and enormous appeal of the show went live on The Guardian website on 3 Dec, 2017.

Rob Walker from The Guardian explains in the piece: “Dennis the Menace, synonymous with childhood mischief and rebellion for more than half a century, is undergoing a multimillion-pound makeover as the Beano battles to stay relevant with the click and swipe generation.
