Minnie to get her own live action TV show!

Beano Studios and Lime Pictures have announced The Magnificent Misadventures of Minnie. She'll be 13, so older than in the comic where she's meant to be around 10.

Re: Just Dennis

Must've been a slow news day yesterday. These changes happened months ago, even years ago in some cases (like Walter no longer being soft - something done to make Dennis not look like a bully).
