9 Famous Comic Strips That Were Turned Into Movies

Friday, November 11 by

Dennis the Menace

The big screen adaptation of Dennis the Menace was a big hit both for comics-turned-movies and the notion that there’s nothing weird about an older man whose best friend is a young serial killer. Dennis is never specifically called out as a killer, but there’s a darkness in him. Mr. Wilson would be wise to keep an eye out for any missing neighborhood pets.

The Addams Family

The Addams Family‘s jump to the big screen proved to be a smash hit, leading to a sequel and several spin-offs. It also introduced the world to Christina Ricci in a breakout role. The boy who played Pugsley wasn’t quite as lucky even though he had the larger breasts at the time.


Though a recent film, Marmaduke is hailed as one of the most important films in the dog wearing sunglasses genre. What a cool pooch.
