Claim to fame:
Jay North is best know as the pint-sized,energetic, 7-year-old child actor won the hearts and laughs of millions of TV viewers in the title role of the 1959 series Dennis the Menace which was based on the popular Hank Ketchum comic strip and ran 4 seasons through 1963, making young Jay North one of the most "in-demand" child stars of the early 1960s guesting on TV variety shows and sitcoms.
Jay eventually slid into teen roles in the Maya series and as the voice of Bamm-Bamm on the Flinstones/Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm cartoon shows of the 1970s.
Where are they now?
Jay North sadly followed the by now "predictable" and "typical" path of "has-been" former child stars by becomming a tabloid sample of drugs, bankruptcy & obscurity.
By the 1990s Jay has claimed recovery and a happy marriage(his third).
By 2002 he was reported to be working as a prison guard in Florida.
