Blondie and Dagwood are about to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary but this happy occasion is marred when the bumbling Dagwood gets himself involved in a scheme that is promising financial ruin for the Bumstead family. Camping on the porch of the Poor House would become the most-used prevalent plot line in the 27 series-films that followed. It was also an issue in the comic-strip for about a year after its inception when it was basically a continuity strip but, aside from Dagwood's inability to coax a pay-raise from Mr. Dithers over the years, the financial status of the family was seldom an issue when the format switched to a gag-a-day strip.Written by

The Blondie Flims Were So Funny That A Good Laugh Could Help Me Sleep.
During the wee late night hours while watching tv during the 1980's, I discovered the "Blondie" film series. They were so funny that a good laugh could help me sleep. I tried to watch them every week they were on, however a man must have his sleep. I never forgot how much I enjoyed the films I saw, so recently I purchased the first six in the series from Amazon.com. There are 28 films in all spanning from 1938 to 1950. Penny Singleton (as "Blondie Bumstead"), Arthur Lake (as "Dagwood Bumstead") and Larry Simms (as "Baby Dumpling"/Dagwood/"Alexander") were in all the films for 12 years. Larry Simms was in "Blondie" at the age of 3 until he was 15. We literally saw him grow up to be a fine teenage boy. He is retired now and has not been in the acting business for quite some time. Penny Singleton is still alive at the nice age of 94. Her latest project was doing the voice of "Jane Jetson" in Jetsons: The Movie (1990). Arthur Lake however is no longer with us. Each film begins with a short preview of a few scenes in the film, then followed by the hilarious postman mishap which becomes the start of the film. That is Penny Singleton and Arthur Lake singing that catchy tune. The Blondie films are warm to the heart and very enjoyable to see and I highly recommend seeing them. Each film is somewhat a continuation of the prior film. And they are fine for children to see. The next film in the series is BLONDIE MEETS THE BOSS.
