Dennis the Menace: Ruff protects me from monsters, an' I protect him from thunder."

And by monster, Dennis of course means Mr. Wilson, whom he has artfully rendered in the drawing above his bed.

More seriously, I actually like this cartoon. It does exactly what Dennis the Menace and Family Circus are supposed to do, which is provide a nostalgic, slice-of-life childhood memory that makes the reader smile. That this is their goal is not the problem; the problem is how often they fail to achieve that goal.
