Blondie Brings Up Baby

Find out where to watch on


Columbia's Blondie series continued its winning streak with its fourth entry, Blondie Brings Up Baby. So much happens within the film's 72 minutes that it's best to boil things down to the central storyline. Baby Dumpling (Larry Simms), the six-year-old son of Blondie and Dagwood Bumstead (Penny Singleton and Arthur Lake) disappears from sight during his first day at school. While Dagwood frantically combs the city in search of the boy, Baby Dumpling spents a nice, safe afternoon with poor little rich girl Melinda Mason (Peggy Ann Garner), who with her new playmate's help arises from her sickbed to walk across the room for the first time in months.

A review by talisencrw

This was a very enjoyable entry of the series for me, as Blondie, hoodwinked by a salesman of questionable integrity that her son Baby Dumpling has a genius I.Q., instantly tries to enlist him in Grade 3 of the local school. It sports a very touching ending in which the boy befriends a rich, troubled girl and tries to help her walk again.
