Bob Rafferty's gagwriting career goes back to the very early days in the 50's when Hank Ketcham's DENNIS THE MENACE was catching fire and spreading into comic books and sunday strips and on to Hollywood where his movies are still being produced to this day. The latest Mr. Wilson is played by long-time popular film actor ROBERT WAGNER.

In the book The Merchant of Dennis, Hank mentions Bob Rafferty along with Al Batt and others as some of his top gagwriters and gives them credit for much of his success.
