Dithers, boss of Blondie's husband, Dagwood Bumstead, rips Dagwood for altering the plans on an apartment building the construction firm is building for Abner Cartwright and, to keep his job, Dagwood must get Cartwright to sign off on the changes - the latter refuses in order to escape from an unfavorable contract.

Later it was revealed during 'Blondie's Blessed Event' that his real name was Alexander. The comic strip probably hadn't given the boy a name yet and when the artist did, the movie writers went along with his name choice. See more »
Just when the new mailman thought he had a new clever idea to deliver the mail to the Bumsteads without the letters literally becoming air mail, here comes Dagwood again! Alvin (Danny Mummert) is back to visit his pal Baby Dumpling (Larry Simms) to exert his intelligence. Today is Baby Dumpling's first day in school and not all goes well. The next film in the series is BLONDIE ON A BUDGET.
