Situation Comedy based on the comic strip,
Blondie, by Chic Young (1939-44)
"Blooooonnnnnnnnnnnnndie! Dagwood Bumstead arrives home after a busy day at the Dithers Construction Company office, where Mr. Dithers threatened him with sharpening his pinkie in the pencil sharpener. But alas, our beloved architect is home eating a mile high sandwich and watching Daisy the dog chase her tail. Blondie is based on Chic Young's popular comic strip.
After becoming a successful movie, Blondie continued to be a hit in its old time radio show form. Arthur Lake, who was raised in a circus family, plays Dagwood Bumstead. His wife, Blondie, is played by Penny Singleton, Ann Rutherford, Alice White and Patricia Van Cleve. Leone Ledoux, professional infant imitator, plays Baby Dumpling and later Cookie. Crazy antics ensue as Dagwood and Blondie go bowling, change fowl diapers, and try to put too much mayonnaise on Dagwood's sandwich!
