This was the first film in the series that did not use the character of Alvin Fuddle. The child actor who portrayed him, Danny Mummert, was appearing in Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life (1946). Mummert would return as Alvin in the next entry in the series, Blondie Knows Best (1946). See more »

Life with Blondie was another funny entry in the Blondie series
16 July 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is the sixteenth in the Blondie movie series. In this one, Daisy suddenly becomes a celebrity because of something involving the Navy and a neighboring woman. Meanwhile, Dagwood gets in some messes, as usual, like him taking Cookie to work or having to deal with some gangsters. Oh, and Alvin Fuddle is not in this one, for some reason. Also, Marjorie Ann Mutchie is now credited as Majorie Kent as she be would for the rest of the series run. Anyway, this was another very funny outing for the series. Especially concerning the things Arthur Lake goes through during the whole thing. So on that note, Life with Blondie is very much worth it for any fan of the series.
