The Bumsteads Stay In A Haunted House!
3 January 2003 | by (Lancaster, California) – See all my reviews

Daisy can't get the newspaper because a black cat went across her path. Baby Dumpling (Larry Simms) knows his parents all too well and Alvin (Danny Mummert) comes in to offer his Good Morning advice. One thing I would like to point out here is that Fay Helm played Mrs. Fuddle. She played Alvin's mother in four Blondie films this being her last Blondie film. Today, (according to imdb.com) she is still alive at the good age of 89. I hope she enjoys watching the Blondie films as much as we do. This film, the sixth in the series, is real cute, however some scenes may be too much for young children to watch. The Bumsteads stay in a haunted house with secret doors and secret passages. Watch the fun begin. The next film in the series is BLONDIE PLAYS CUPID.
