Blondie & Dagwood decide to go to college.
30 August 2003 | by (Lancaster, CA) – See all my reviews

This is the 10th film (of 28) in the Blondie film series. The Bumsteads go to the football game. But Baby Dumpling (Larry Simms) is a bit disappointed. The seats are right in the center of the goal posts and he can't see a thing. But Baby does manage to catch the special football. Dagwood (Arthur Lake) decides he wants to go to college for the first time. Later, Blondie (Penny Singleton) wants Dagwood to stop dreaming and not be late for work this morning. Blondie decides to have a talk with Mr. Dithers. Dithers thinks it's a great idea for Dagwood to go to college to get it out of his system. He thinks Blondie should go too. But Blondie has another idea. She's going to have another baby. Dagwood doesn't know yet. Lloyd Bridges plays a college student. Sid Melton plays "Mouse". Notice the scene when Dagwood tells Mrs. Dill that he dreamed he was a baby, and then he yawns. Notice Larry Simms laughing abit at Arthur. The next film in the series is BLONDIE'S BLESSED EVENT.
