Blondie And Dagwood

WHO WAS THE ILLUSTRATED COMIC-STRIP COUPLE THAT AMERICAN FAMILIES ADMIRED, WOKE UP TO AND READ ABOUT IN THE SUNDAY PAPER? 

Dagwood and Blondie were fun, comical, loving and all about the going-ons of the American family life. The humorous series on about the Bumsteads was unending.

Dagwood Bumstead is a main character in comic artist Chic Young’s long-running comic strip Blondie. He first appeared sometime prior to 17 February 1933.

He was originally heir to the Bumstead Locomotive fortune but was disowned when he married a flapper (originally known as Blondie Boopadoop) whom his family saw as below his class. He has since worked hard at J.C. Dithers & Company (currently as the construction company’s office manager) to support his family. The Bumsteads’ first baby, Alexander, was originally named Baby Dumpling.

 The name of his younger sister, Cookie, was chosen by readers in a national contest. The family circle is rounded out by Daisy the dog. The origin of both Dagwood’s last name and Daisy’s name came from Chic Young’s long-time friend Arthur Bumstead and his dog, Daisy. wikipedia

  1. Hello Neil! How interesting that a tabloid is still around to feature any vintage comic strip. I wish there could be a few of the most popular ones on the web. 🤔 Until next time… 💫👌☕️☕️ Have a sensational week!
