The Simpsons Tennis the Menace (1989– ) Online
Homer builds a tennis court and plays the game with Marge. However he is predictably dreadful so that,when the family enter Krusty the Klown's pro-am charity tournament,she dumps him and partners the superior Bart instead. As the game progresses they are joined on court by the Williams sisters,Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras,to whose professional superiority they ultimately bow down and take their seats in the audience. Homer has,however,lifted fifty dollars from Sampras's wallet.

This episode was digitally colored, the third attempt after season 7's "Radioactive Man" and "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular". However, the crew held off on completely switching over to digital coloring so that they could further fine-tune the process.
When Homer asks if Andre Agassi is "the wrestler", it is a reference to the late wrestler André the Giant.
The title is based on the newspaper single panel comic "Dennis the Menace" that has been produced since 1950 and started by the late Hank Ketcham.
The second episode of season 12 with the word 'menace' in the title, after 'The Computer Wore Menace Shoes.'
