My favorite "Blondie" movie.
24 June 1999 | by (Easton, Maryland) – See all my reviews

While, being a fan of all the "Blondie" movies, this one is my all-time favorite. I have two reasons for picking this one above all the others. One, I am an animal lover. The whole story revolves around a lovable Great Dane. His expressions and antics, alone, are hilarious, but mixed in with the Bumsteads, and the laughs are constant. Two, the finale at the dog show is top rate. You have cute dogs, a beautiful song, and a hilarious melee. What more could you ask for??
