Daisy has puppies and Blondie has a baby...
6 September 2003 | by (Lancaster, California) – See all my reviews

Baby Dumpling (Larry Simms) decides it's time to be called by his real name "Alexander". Daisy has just had her babies er ah puppies that is. When Dagwood (Arthur Lake) runs home he thought it was Blondie (Penny Singleton). Blondie's time is about to occur as well. Alexander and Alvin (Danny Mummert) are doing the housework. Later at the hospital Dagwood explains to Alexander why Blondie must be in the hospital and the truth about that stork business. Alvin sets Dagwood straight almost telling too much. Well, Alvin and Dagwood both told the truth. Right? (Very good and tender father and son scene) At just the right time, Blondie has the baby and it's a...you'll have to watch the film to find out. This is one of the finest Blondie movies ever made in the series. It is okay for children to watch. Parents should watch this delightful film with the kids. Mary Wickes plays the broadway-bound maid. The next film in the series is BLONDIE FOR VICTORY.
