Jay North began a career as a child actor at the age of six. He became a household name for his portrayal of Dennis Mitchell on the CBS sitcom Dennis the Menace
(1959-1963),
based on the comic strip created by Hank Ketcham.

As an adult, North turned to voice acting work for animated television series, voicing
the roles of Prince Turhan in Arabian Knights and a teenage Bamm-Bamm Rubble
on The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show.

After leaving show business and disclosing the truth of a troubled childhood as a
child actor, North began working with fellow former child star Paul Petersen and
the organization, A Minor Consideration, using his own experiences as a child
performer to counsel other children working within the entertainment industry.
