Blondie

Blondie

In 1939, Chic Young’s popular comic strip, Blondie, was transformed into a thirty-minute situation-comedy program, which aired once a week. Advertised as a “typical couple” in the Radio Mirror, Blondie and her husband are anything but ordinary. The opening of the show does much to reinforce this fact: “Uh…Uh…Uh…UH! Don’t touch that dial! It’s time for… BLONNNNNNDIE!” The shows focus around the misfortunes of Dagwood, Blondie’s self-important husband. It seems he can do little right, both at work and at home, and is often in trouble with his boss and his wife! Events on the radio closely follow those in the comic and the film, as we see the Bumstead family complying with, what Young called, “the laws of natural life”.
