|Blondie: The Movie Series- Theme Song, Sound Clips, Writing Formula and My List of the Best Blondie Films.|
|Pretty-faced, funny hat
That's what my Blondie is.
Loveable, feet both flat
That's what my Dagwood is.
Blondie's not always right
I let her think she is.
All of my thoughts are bright
As long as he thinks there his.
Life with us is fun and crazy
Baby Dumpling, us and Daisy.
What a fam-i-ly
Hurry you'll miss your bus
Watch out, you'll burn your stew.
Nothing's too much for us
As long as with me there's you.
Blondie and Dagwood
Dagwood and Blondie
Always with me there's you.

|* The Blondie series was heartwarming and unforgettable; so much so that it lasted for 28 installments. This was due, not only to the hilarity in each, and the perfect actor choices (Arthur was born to play Dagwood), but for something that many forget to mention: the writing formula. Although there were about ten different writers over the years, and three seperate directors, they had stumbled upon a writing formula that was tailor-made for the entire series.
This often-used formula by the Blondie writers was a style that brought in usually around four seperate idea threads (at different times) that would merge together at the end of each for a finale that hit the smile muscles fast and hard. It was as if every Blondie movie was written by the same person. It's a formula, I must admit, that I have never seen used in film at any time in history. I was always blown away with the way they pulled it off- all in the usual span of only 70 minutes. Hats off to Richard Flournoy who wrote the earliest episodes, and to all those who followed in his footsteps: Karen Dewolf, Connie Lee, Edward Bernds, Jack Henley and all the rest. Thank-you for putting a smile on my face and for making me wax with nostalgia for this series!
To get the best idea of what I am talking about: check out "Blondie in the Dough", which had the most threaded, complex plot of any of the Blondie films. This one was written by Arthur Marx and the screenplay was by Jack Henley.
