Ever Heard Of A Dagwood Sandwich ? Famous Because of A Cartoon Strip ! "Blondie and Dagwood" 1930's

 Hey there! "Blondie and Dagwood" is an American comic strip created by cartoonist Chic Young. The strip has been published in newspapers since 1930 and follows the misadventures of the titular blonde and her sandwich-loving husband.

Chic Young wrote and drew Blondie and Dagwood until his death in 1973, after which creative control passed to his son Dean Young. A number of artists have assisted in drawing the strip over the years, but it has remained popular regardless. You can read "Blondie & Dagwood in more than 2,000 newspapers in 47 countries and it's been translated into 35 languages. From 2006 to 2013, you could also email King Features for new strips.

Cartoon Animation:

In 1980, Blondie and Dagwood made a brief animated appearance on The Fantastic Funnies, a TV special focusing on newspaper comics. They sang a song to host Loni Anderson with other comic strip characters, before appearing in a short sequence where Blondie urges Dagwood to get a haircut. The animation was produced by Bill Melendez Productions. Dagwood also makes a cameo appearance in Garfield Gets Real. In 1987, an animated cartoon TV special featuring the characters was made by Marvel Productions. 

I know this blog article was short and sweet but if you need to know more about Blondie and Dagwood in depth, please use my Wiki search bar at the top of my blog. The cartoon animation history part is short lived, that is why I was so brief with this post. I wish that they had made more animated cartoons of "Blondie & Dagwood" but here is one of few...
