Revived Dennis the Menace (1986 Animated Series) on Netflix with Brand New Episodes.

Over 30th years ago, the animated series of Dennis the Menace was produced by DIC Entertainment (now owned by DHX Media) was aired on television from 1986 to 1988. It's last only two seasons with 78 episodes (234 segments) and continued running in the 90's and 2000's as well. Based on the popular classic comic strip by Hank Ketcham about Dennis Mitchell, a young blond-haired boy with cowlick who gets into numerous scrapes and adventures along his dog Ruff and his friends Joey, Margaret, Gina, Tommy, PeeBee and Jay. Especially he's getting into mischief that's which end up tormenting his hapless and grouchy next-neighbor, Mr. Wilson. Dennis get involved in all kinds of wild and crazy adventures, but always manages to  save the day. This popular animated is full with laugh, fun and adventure that catch it everyone's hearts for all ages. But what if American's favorite troublemaker is back for more excitement and more trouble? We fans very like to see this wonderful cartoon returns with brand new episodes for more fun, more adventures and more mischievous. It's not a reboot or remake, it's "REVIVAL"! With same energy, adventurous and humor of Hank Ketcham's spirit, but more advanced animation quality and richer colors in normal 2D traditional hand-drawn like it was before instead crummy CGI or choppy Adobe flash. The opening credits would be re-recorded version of original 80's theme and the closing credits will be new and different segment. Hopefully featuring the new voice casts for Dennis and his gang, plus the returning of the legendary voice actor (Maurice LaMarche from Pinky & the Brain and Futurama) as the voice of Henry Mitchell, Ruff and George Wilson ever since Phil Hartman die in 1998. And (Madeline: Stevie Vallance) as the voice of Martha Wilson and Alice Mitchell. If anybody are biggest Dennis the Menace fans out there, please sign this petition and we'll be extremely grateful if DHX Media, King Features, General Mills and The Program Exchange would bring back Dennis the Menace as the revival series on Netflix and if they could co-production with other animation studios from Japan and: or South Korea to do overseas animated this show. Everybody will enjoy Dennis and the rest lovable characters once again in new episodes and Direct-to-Video movie series. There is no other brats but with a kindhearted like Dennis the Menace.

Petition to Mayor Bill de Blasio, Eric L. Adams (President of Borough of Brooklyn) Communi

Name a street by Erasmus Hall High School Kenny Vance Way

Naming a street in Kenny Vance's honor is important because "he started off as a Brooklyn doo wopper, singing on the corner, and in the subway, looking for that echo! He found it, and we found him! Brooklyn needs to bestow upon this man, who represents his hometown, into eternity, a street named after him......Kenny Vance Way!" (JWG) In addition, while Kenny Vance has had his work recognized in the past, (In 2002, Kenny Vance was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and in 2007 he was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.) He has yet to be recognized by his hometown Brooklyn, New York. Here is the story and history of Kenny Vance. Kenny Vance, born on December 9, 1943 as Kenneth Rosenberg is a Brooklyn native whose many contributions in the music industry as a singer, songwriter and music producer as well as music supervisor for the movie industry have spanned for over 50 years. Kenny Vance started his first vocal group, The Harbor Lites at the age of 15. Kenny then founded the group Jay and the Americans. Kenny is a multi talented musician. He managed Steely Dan and worked with them from 1967 until 1971. Kenny was the music supervisor for the movies "Eddie and the Cruisers" and "Animal House" and "American Hot Wax." Kenny also appeared as an Actor in the movies "Hurlyburly", "Billy Bathgate", "American Hot Wax" as Professor La Plano with what was then a fictional group called The Planotones and in Woody Allen's movies, "Manhattan", "Stardust Memories", "Crimes and Misdemeanors" and "Husbands and Wives." In addition, Kenny Vance has also served as the musical director for Saturday Night Live from 1980-1981. Through all of his many accomplishments his passion has always been singing and no one does it better than Kenny Vance. In 1992 he created another group when he reformed the once fictional Planotones into what we now know as Kenny Vance and The Planotones. He recorded two albums with the new Planotones "Teenage Jazz" and "LOOKING FOR AN ECHO" the song in which Kenny has forever immortalized Erasmus Hall High School. Looking For An Echo was also the title to a movie starting Armand Assante has become his signature song. In the years that followed Kenny Vance and The planotones went on tour and it was a success. In 2002, Kenny Vance was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and in 2007 he was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame. On October 29, 2012, Kenny lost his house in Rockaway Queens during Hurricane Sandy, and spent four months living in a hotel in Staten Island. We his fans want to see that Kenny gets something in return for all his work and dedication. Naming a Brooklyn street in his honor would be fitting for all of the joy he has given to his many loyal fans over the years. In recent years, Kenny's health has prevented him from doing what he loves most, singing, it has kept him off the stage for almost two years! Honoring Kenny Vance in this way, is an opportunity, to thank an amazing artist,songwriter, and musical genius, aside from being a major mensch, who is Brooklyn through and through! A street in his name is "a most deserving honor, for a man who represents Brooklyn as well as Kenny Vance does, as evidenced by the fact that at the close of each and every performance by Kenny & The Planotones, he says, " We are The Planotones", from Brooklyn, New York!!! A street named by Erasmus Hall High School will not only be a great honor for Kenny Vance, it would be served as a great example and inspiration to the current students of Erasmus Hall High School that anything they set their minds to is possible. Kenny Vance's "influence has been monumental and we all feel and believe that a street in his honor would be the perfect "monument" to show him Brooklyn's appreciation in return." This is why we the fans of the Kenny Vance Fan Club are petitioning The City of New York and Kings County (aka Brooklyn) to name a street by Erasmus Hall High School "KENNY VANCE WAY" Several contemporary musicians,one of them being Dion Dimucci of Dion and The Belmonts fame have been given this honor in the past. The time has come to honor to our beloved Kenny Vance.-TC- We, his loving & loyal fans know that honoring Kenny Vance by naming a street after him, would be a fitting and well earned accomplishment, for this talented guy from Brooklyn, who we are so very fortunate to have had "Looking For An Echo"! -JWG

Petition to Robert Redford, Reed Hastings, AMC Entertainment

RENEW THE RED ROAD

All of the actors and crew in The Red Road are simply amazing. From Jason Momoa to Kiowa Gordon to Martin Henderson to Tamara Tunie to Allie Gonino to Annalise Basso to Tom Sizemore to Wes Studi.  It ended too suddenly.  A week after the last show you pull the plug. You reel the fans in by giving us two free episodes on Sundance (for those of us who don't subscribe to the Sundance channel) and then four episodes later you end it all.  I paid to watch those last four episodes because I am a devoted fan of the show.  If renewed for Season 3, I would do it again. I am sure there are many fans who would do the same. We all understand this is business. But that doesn't affect the fans. None of that is our concern. That is for you and whomever to work out.  The end result should be satisfaction of your customers which happens to be us.  I'm going to imagine that this will have a negative affect on Sundance TV.  It will for me. If you want to keep your good reputation by giving your customers what they want, then I am suggesting you come up with a plan to renew Season 3. I am a huge fan of Jason Momoa. He has many many fans worldwide. We all love to fantasize and imagine what it would be like to be a part of his world. But his fans embraced him as Phillip Kopus. We were there on his journey. We all were hoping he would find happiness and peace in whatever he wanted to do. When he hurt, we hurt. When he cried, we cried. When he laughed, oh my gosh did we ever light up. But Kopus was a complicated fella. Now that has all ended. You, Sundance TV, have taken this away from us. Kopus is no more. Jason Momoa is no more. Please bring back The Red Road for his fans. For me. PLEASE.
