The Kat Went Back Part Two

Dennis Lawrence Chan is Coop's 10-year old Asian-Canadian best friend and the main deuteragonist of the series. They used to hang out and defeat Kat together and his one of Coop's neighbors. His father's name is Henry. He lives with his high-tech family and lots of future technology.



  • He can whistle
  • He seems to be smarter than Coop, especially in scientific fields
  • Able to eat cat food and use a litter box to better know the enemy (When Bad Dogs Go Big)
  • Pulling strength: During the balloon journey in Birthday Bashed he is able to support his entire body weight (plus 6 helmets, for a time) dangling 1-armed holding the left ankle of Lorne with his right hand, for several seconds on-screen. It is possible he switched hands off-screen to save endurance between when they leave the bowling alley and when Dennis kicks Kat off a mountain.
    • In The Kat Went Back Part 1 he is able to swing a shovel hard enough that the metal head is indented into the shape of Coop's head upon hitting him, although Dennis was aiming for Kat. Naturally, Coop was fine.
  • Pressing strength: he is strong enough to support Coop's weight with his upper body for over 15 seconds (and even walk while doing so, though he begins to wobble) in Turn The Other Cheeks when Coop sits on his head (Dennis holds his legs) to converse with Lorne and Harl who are standing on stools. Even when straight his arm length is less than the height of his head.


He and Coop are described as "two 10-year olds" in a season 1 episode and celebrate birthdays in season 2.

Dennis has black hair and black eyes but unlike his father, he does have an Asian accent.

His hair has a tuft at the back similar to Coop but is less tall and voluminous, resulting in him appearing shorter. Based on the shape of their skulls, he may actually be taller than Coop if the hair is taken out of the equation. He comments in The Incredible Shrinking Coop that he is "already the smallest kid in gym class"

Each hand has 1 thumb plus 3 fingers.


  • in Kat to the Future his altered-timeline self grows a 4th finger on one hand, which upsets him.
  • in Hair Brains, he has a flashback to "last time" Kat spread an alien illness. Dennis is shown growing a pair of antlers seconds after Kat sneezes purple goop on his head.


  • His last name may be Chan, source needed.
  • Dennis sadly laments that his middle name is Lawrence in Swap Wrecked after Lorne and Harley reveal theirs as Carnage and Doomsday
  • 13 February 2011 Rob Boutilier said that in the scripts, Dennis' last name was Lu, based on animation director Denny Lu, but that that surname was not legally cleared for broadcast so Dennis had no last name at that point.
    • This is probably why Henry had the initials HL on his suit in season 1.
  • In Turn The Other Cheeks when returning from Space Voyager Camp when Coop is glad they get to keep their jumpsuits (which were earlier mentioned to have their names on them) Dennis pulls on his left sleeve to inspect s white tag on the upper arm and complains "too bad mine says, Denise". Coop's tag was on his right arm.


In the "missions" against Kat, Dennis usually comes up with the plans to defeat him, or else they just use the "Smash and Destroy" tactic. In the last episode of Kid vs Kat, his memory is not lost.

  • In his spare time (Down the Drain) he enters a secret room of his research room where the rare cases that have happened long ago.
  • In some episodes (which?) Dennis can show both ingenious and at the same time naive.
  • He's a fan of the series called "Captain Blasteroid", like Coop.
  • In Good Luck Harm he says he doesn't like potatoes.
  • In The Allergy, he thinks he's allergic to bees.
  • In Over The Radar, He was Holding his pet at the end.



Dennis and Coop's birthdays are one day away from each other and they always wish for the same presents. They have been friends since preschool, Dennis is the only one who believes Coop about Kat, but he also believed Coop in preschool when Coop said that pigeons flew in threw the window and drank all of Dennis's chocolate milk while he was going to the bathroom.


In Beware The Were-Coop Dennis is looking in a monster book and says that Kat could not be a mummy-cat (though he does not specify why he thinks that) but that he could be a vampire-cat since he has fangs.

Coop chides that the previous week, Dennis thought he was a leprechaun-cat. Dennis defensively maintains that it was a reasonable theory.

After Coop walks off, Dennis wonders aloud to himself if Kat might be a hydra-cat. He temporarily dismisses this, saying Kat only has 1 head, but then questions this assumption.

When Coop says Kat is drawing power from the moon, he then declares Kat must be a were-cat.

In later episodes Dennis appears to agree with Coop about Kat being an alien.


A girl named Estelle fell in love with Dennis in Kat of Diamonds. Dennis is aware of her feelings but doesn't feel the same way about her.


In Birthday Bashed, when Phoebe wanted Coop's attention, she ends up drawing Dennis' attention. This might be because Dennis has a little crush on Phoebe.
