Blondie Old Time Radio Program

Blondie
½ hour comedy show

Blondie first started as a newspaper comic strip in 1930, created by Chic Young. The franchise moved to a series of success B movies starting in 1938. Finally Blondie moved to the radio in 1939, and ran until 1950. The two stars Penny Singleton and Arthur Lake first appeared as Blondie and Dagwood in the movies, then on the Bob Hope Show in 1938, and made the successful transition to the radio program.

This is just a fun suburban slapstick comedy show. Dagwood Bumpstead is improbably married to the lovely and level-headed Blondie. The Bumpstead family consists of Dagwood, Blondie, their son Alexander, and later on their baby Cookie. Dagwood works for J.C. Dithers Construction Company as a lowly accountant, and his relationship with his overbearing boss is the a setup for many of the antics in the show. The program reminds me of a precursor to I Love Lucy and the Flintstones. in which Dagwood gets himself into bizarre and comical situations and Blondie manages to save the day.

Arthur Lake (Dagwood) loved the part, and would have been happy if he could be Dagwood forever – at 11 years, that's almost forever in Hollywood terms. Penny Singleton who portrayed Blondie from 1939 to the mid 1940s does a good job of converting a comic strip character to a three dimensional persona. Blondie was later played by Patricia Van Cleve. Hanley Stafford played his demanding boss, Dithers (Stafford also played “Daddy” on the Baby Snooks show). The Bumpstead's neighbor was played by Harold Peary (of The Great Gildersleeve fame).


Uhh-uhh-uhh-don't touch that dial! Listen to ......Blondie!!!
